Janet Nguyen’s victory this week in the race for the 34th State Senate District means that she is going to vacate her seat in the First District of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, in January.
What this means is that there will be a Special Election, probably in February, to replace Nguyen.
I ran into Lou Correa at Sal Tinajero’s Election Night Party and he said he was definitely running. But there are going to be quite a few other candidates and as I understand it this will be a winner takes all election.
So who do you think should become our next OC Supervisor? The First District includes the cities of Santa Ana, Westminster and Garden Grove and portions of Fountain Valley and Midway City. This is mostly a blue collar area with a need for more economic development, affordable housing and transportation. We need a good Supervisor who will be able to tackle these issues right away.
Please note that you can vote for up to three candidates in the poll above. Or pick the one you really like. Now go vote!
