From the OC Politics Blog



“On a 4-1 vote after a marathon interview session the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to appointed Hieu Nguyen to the position of Orange County Clerk-Recorder,” according to the OC Political blog.

This is such great news!  For once a non-politician got the job and believe me, Nguyen is most qualified to be our Clerk-Recorder.

I texted him today after his interview and asked how it went. He said he thought he did well, but he was nervous and stumbled a bit.  I bet that helped his case!

Nguyen lives in Santa Ana with his wife and family.  He is a graduate of Santa Ana’s public schools.  He worked for the last decent Clerk-Recorder, Gary Granville, who died in office.

This is an epic moment of course for Orange County’s Vietnamese community.  I wonder which Supervisor voted against him?  Update – I just found out that Supervisor John Moorlach voted against Nguyen.  Moorlach was pining for Bruce Peotter, who is a nice guy but has no clue about what Clerk-Recorders do.

Nguyen’s first task should be to launch an investigation of former Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly’s shenanigans.
