These board are what give our unincorporated communities some measure of self-governance.

Capistrano Bay Community Services District

Two seats are open.  Neither incumbent filed, so it will go into an AEIOU extension.  Three people finished all of the steps on Friday: William WiersigBrad Jenkins, and Yuri Cramer.  They may yet have company.

Emerald Bay Service District

John Marconi and Phil De Carion are the incumbents, and they win without opposition.

Rossmoor Community Services District

Full Term

Four people are on the ballot for three positions:

  • Incumbent Tony DeMarco
  • Incumbent Michael Maynard
  • Joyce Bloom
  • Nathan Searles

Jeffrey Barke did not run after all.  Given that the third incumbent didn’t file this race goes to an AEIOU extension.  It’s probably just as well; he has a new charter school to keep sanitized.

Short Term

Given that Incumbent Jeffrey Barke did not file here either, this race goes to an AEIOU extension.

So far, only Jeffrey Rips has qualified.

Surfside Colony, Community Services District

Incumbent Rudy Lalonde filed and wins without opposition.

Three Arch Bay Community, Services District

Three seats: only one incumbent filed, so this goes to an AEIOU extension.

  • Incumbent Gary Rubel has qualified
  • John Dorr has qualified
  • Judith Yorke has qualified.


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
