Canyon Country — In an early morning news conference, local Pee-wee Herman Cosplayer and two time election loser Brett Haddock declared his candidacy for the 2020 city council race. “This is a great day for America,” said Haddock, to the audience consisting primarily of his mother, “it is time for this great city to embark on a new journey. A new chapter for Santa Clarita begins today.”
After taking a moment to allow for applause, he thanked the audience and walked off stage where he announced his concession to current council member Cameron Smyth. “I know Mr. Smyth will do a good job in representing the fine people of Santa Clarita. I look forward to working with him on the many issues facing our fair city. Please disregard all the nasty things I said about him during the campaign.”
Reached for comment by phone, Council Member Smyth couldn’t stop laughing.
