Neel Kashkari x 5 pre-filed

Neel Before … Jerry Brown?

OK, technically Orange County’s sort-of-own  Neel Kashkari just took out papers — what I call “pre-filing” and because OJB is the only outlet that pays attention to the Registrar of Voters Candidate Filing Logs with insane regularity, we of course have the story first.  (At least Google didn’t say that anyone else has it first.)  Even pre-filing costs money, and Kashkari did it today — and it’s the first evidence that he actually found his way to the Registrar of Voters office.  And, by the way, it puts him ahead of Jerry Brown, who should either stop dithering and pre-file or just announce outright that he’s waiting until everyone else has unalterably committed to another race — and then inform us that his wife, Ann Gust Brown, will run instead.  You read both here first!  We OWN this story!

About Greg Diamond

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
