POSTED ON 9/28/2005 | PERMALINK |1 Comments | BOOKMARK
Tom Dealy has been indicted. GOP congressional officials say Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., will recommend Rep. David Dreier of California as a temporary replacement for Tom Delay. Just who is this guy?

Dreier has served as chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee since 1999. He has also served as chairman of California's Republican Congressional Delegation since 2001. Dreier was a major player in helping elect Arnold Schwarzenegger in California's 2003 recall election, and is a frequent guest on the political talk show circuit.

Throughout his early Congressional service, Dreier established a record as a strong supporter of tax cuts and of President Reagan's anti-Communist foreign policy. One of the youngest as well as the first Californian Rules Chairman in history, David Dreier plays a pivotal role in fashioning legislation promoting Republican Party positions on Social Security, child education, taxes, and national security.

David Dreier serves the eastern cities of L.A. County in the beautiful San Gabriel Valley, including: Arcadia, Bradbury, Claremont, Glendora, La Canada Flintridge, La Verne, Monrovia, San Dimas, San Marino, Sierra Madre, Walnut, La Crescenta-Montrose, Mayflower Village, and North El Monte. Heading into the eastern part of the district, one crosses the county line into San Bernardino County and the residential communities of Upland, Montclair, and Rancho Cucamonga.
