OC GOP fails to endorse a supervisorial candidate

Well, the OC GOP Central Committee meeting turned out to be lacking in drama after the smoke cleared tonight. Tim Whitacre took the hill the French way, by not even showing up. OC GOP Chairman Scott Baugh noted that Whitacre’s absence was not excused.

The big winner of the night was none other than our former co-blogger, Ryan Gene Williams. Ryan was appointed to represent the 69th Assembly Caucus on the OC GOP Executive Committee. I asked him to serve in that capacity and I am glad my fellow Caucus members agreed.

Supervisorial candidate Janet Nguyen was also there tonight, as was the Trannie candidate Trung Nguyen. Carlos Bustamante showed up, in a bomber jacket no less, but he left sans endorsement. No se puede Carlos!

Lupe Moreno was there too, but Ryan has decided to look for new blood with regard to selecting his alternate on the Central Committee. Good move Ryan! I also am looking for a new alternate as Ray Gawronski has elected not to continue in that capacity. I wish him well in his future endeavors.

Finally, SAUSD school board member Rosie Avila showed up, for whatever reason, and apparently she has joined Moreno in endorsing Bustamante. I’m sure that will help him in Santa Ana – not! Now Benny Diaz can send out a mailer showing Bustamante flanked by Moreno and Avila. Latino voters will no doubt reject Bustamante – and then they will do so again in two years when he runs for the City Council again.
