IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m so happy to see that neither Cassie DeYoung or Pat Bates won a majority in the race for the 5th County Supervisor Seat. Now, there will be a runoff, and we can watch these two eat each other alive for another 5 months.
Ultimately itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to be Pat Bates that wins the seat. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s face it, Cassie DeYoung spent $2.8 million in the primary race, and she got 37% of the vote. Wait, wait, wait. I need to repeat that sentence and bask in the incredible pity I have for this failure: She spent $2.8 million, most of which came from her own high-end handbag, and she only received 37% of the vote.
Statistically speaking, Pat BatesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ $300,000 was a lot of money to be spent on a Supervisor race, but nobody is paying attention to that because DeYoung spent $2.8 million. And didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t win.. $2.8 million. DidnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t win.
According to CassieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s website, she is running for the SupervisorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s seat because she wants to protect the quality of life we have here in OC.
It is critical to the maintenance of our Quality of Life that we create a comprehensive transportation strategy for improving the traffic mess that affects all of Orange County.
If DeYoung was really interested in creating a comprehensive transportation strategy for improving the traffic mess that affects all of OC, she would have spent $2.8 million on trying to improve the OCTA, not on her disastrous campaign.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m curious how much money both of these ladies will be spending before November, and how many times theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll sue one another this time.
