I decided today to pull papers for Area One of the Orange County Board of Education. The only candidate who has thus far qualified for the ballot is Ken Nguyen, who is a member of the Santa Ana Parks And Recreation Commission. Nguyen appears to be a grandfather and I believe he is a businessman.
Hammond is an extreme social conservative who recently dropped out of the running for the 69th Assembly District. His late departure from that race left the OC GOP without a candidate in that contest, although candidates can file for that seat through tomorrow, Wednesday, at 5 pm. Hammond appears to be a grandfather too.
One other candidate pulled papers today, Eleazar Elizondo. He is a Democrat who has run for the Santa Ana City Council before, losing to Mike Garcia in 2006, according to Smart Voter. He also ran for the O.C. Board of Supervisors in 2000, losing to Chuck Smith, according to Smart Voter. At the time he claimed to be a teacher in the 4th and 5th grades and he said he once worked for liberal U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer. According to his Linkedin Page, he is now in the PR business.
