Will Anaheim Councilwoman Lucille Kring run for the 4th Supervisorial District too?

Will Anaheim Councilwoman Lucille Kring run for the 4th Supervisorial District?

Rumors are abounding that Anaheim Councilwoman Lucille Kring will announce that she too is going to run for the 4th District Supervisorial seat being vacated by Chris Norby, who is termed out.

Anaheim Councilwoman Lorri Galloway is already in the race.  So is Anaheim Councilman Harry Sidhu.  Both are carpetbaggers who are looking for homes in the 4th District.

Kring is a Republican as is Sidhu.  Galloway is a Democrat.

This would be very bad news for Orange County Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly, who was Mayor of Anaheim a long time ago.  It is likely that over half the residents of Anaheim have no clue who he is.  Like Galloway he is a Democrat.

If Kring does jump in, that should be the last straw for Daly.  He will likely drop out of the race and stay put in the Clerk-Recorder’s office.  But he will have to then run for reelection.  I think he can be defeated by Republican candidate Hugh Nguyen, who used to be the Deputy Clerk-Recorder under Daly’s predecessor.  Nguyen now works for the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors.

Kring may take some votes from the leading Republican challenger, Fullerton Councilman Shawn Nelson, but more likely she will sink Sidhu and Daly, not to mention Galloway.  Her entry would also be bad news for La Habra Councilwoman Rose Espinoza, who is also in the race.  She, like Galloway and Daly, is a Democrat.

Nelson stands to gain the most from Kring’s entry into the race.  His supporters should be encouraging her to run.
