Orange County Election Update

It’s getting close in the SAUSD School Board race, where the latest figures from the O.C. Voter Registrar show that Roman Reyna is now only 78 votes behind Valerie Amezcua, for the third seat on the School Board.  I am sure that regardless of the outcome when the final votes are tallied, there is bound to be a recount.

Meanwhile, Andrew Do is running away with the second open seat on the Garden Grove City Council, as he has now vaulted over Robin Marcario by about a thousand votes.  I am still pulling for Robin but this one doesn’t look good.  Will the Teamsters and the DPOC ever realize what a mistake they made in backing the unqualified candidate Paul Lucas over Marcario?

Over in Westminster, Truong Diep is now about 250 votes behind Peggy Loomer.  Not good!  I hope he loses.  Diep is Assemblyman Van Tran’s right hand hack.

In the Westminster School District School Board race, every single Vietnamese candidate is losing.  Sergio Contreras was by far the biggest vote-getter with over 13,000 votes.

In the Garden Grove Unified School District School Board race, Kim Oanh-Nguyen Lam is barely winning, with an 800 vote lead over George West.

And Democrat Debra Carrillo is still trouncing Republican Kermit Marsh in their contest for a seat on the O.C. Superior Court.

Finally, kudos to Libertarian Congressional candidate Don Patterson.  He got over 10,000 votes in his race against Republican incumbent John Campbell, in the 48th Congressional District.
