Open GG Council Seat

On Friday I wrote a little something about the Garden Grove City Council and their efforts to appoint someone to take Janet Nguyen’s seat that has just been vacated by her move to the BOS.

I should say that Robin Marcario has been a very reliable source for feeding me the information since I was unable to attend that city council meeting.

Robin was also nice enough to give me a list of people that applied for the open seat. These are the ones that she remembers, if there are any more, you can leave them in the comments section.
