Adios Chriss Street!

Street is out, now we just have to get rid of Moorlach’s other creation, appointed Sheriff Sandra Hutchens!

Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector Chriss Street has decided not to run for re-election and he has announced that he will cede control over the County investment pool to the O.C. Board of Supervisors.

“Amid calls for his resignation and a stern rebuke from a federal judge, Treasurer Chriss Street said he would give up authority over the county’s roughly $5-billion investment pool. The drama has rekindled painful memories in a county that is still paying off the debt from a history-making 1994 bankruptcy that cost thousands of people their jobs,” according to the L.A. Times.

Prospective candidates to replace Street have an extra week to file for the office, since he waited so long to announce his withdrawal. 

Currently there are four candidates who have pulled papers, according to the O.C. Voter Registrar.  They include some guy named Gary Capata; an audtor/college professor named Pat Desmond; Huntington Beach City Treasurer Shari Freidenrich; and some guy named David Lang.

Word on the street is that the OC GOP is desperately trying to recruit someone other than Freidenrich.  Apparently she has some issues that the party is worried about.  It should be an interesting week…
