Okay, here’s the deal. Over at The Orange Juice Blog Art Pedroza posts that he’s hearing that Democrat Santa Ana City Councilman David Benavides is being talked up as a possible challenger to First District Supervisor Janet Nguyen.
But Benavides is a HORRIBLE public speaker. And he has an awful record as a Councilman. Good grief I cannot believe anyone thinks he would make a good Supervisor. This just goes to show you how very desperate the Democrats are. They know that Supervisor Nguyen is headed for another victory in June.
Where to begin?
I know that Art is a tool for Janet, but when did she become a good public speaker?
From my perspective, if an elected Democrat Latino, from the largest city in the district, who happened to get almost double the votes Janet did in February, or for that matter in her Garden Grove City Council race, more power to him.
Art has been crowing about the Dems being anti-minority for thinking of running a white candidate (Joe Dunn) in the First District. Now he calls them desperate if there is talk of a Latino, in a majority Latino district, challenging Nguyen.
Can he be any more inconsistent?
I welcome the thought of the highest Santa Ana Council vote getter in the November election challenging Nguyen. Quite frankly Benavides has more real world experience than Nguyen. Janet Nguyen has been a disaster as a Supervisor. She has taken “Minor-League” to a new level of incompetence.
I hope Benavides seriously considers running. It would be nice to have someone on the Board of Supervisors, representing the First District, who isn’t a lackey for John Moorlach and the Lincoln Club.
