UPDATE: 3/7/08 11:45 AM Got word this morning; Benavides will NOT be running for Supervisor in the First District. It would have been much more interesting if he were to have jumped in.
Update#2: Word on the street is that Paul will not be turning in his papers to run for Supervisor. If this is in fact true… Congrats Paul on making the wise decision to focus on your City Council campaign in Garden Grove.
IÃ‚Â just saw on the OC Registrar of VotersÃ‚Â that Paul Lucas, the 2006 Democratic candidate for 68th Assemby has pulled papers to challenge current OC First District Supervisor Janet Nguyen.Ã‚Â I have been supportive ofÃ‚Â Paul in the past.Ã‚Â I support his bid for Garden Grove City Council.Ã‚Â But is this the best we Dems can come up with?Ã‚Â
At this point I’m going to step out on a limb here and ask,Ã‚Â I mean plead, with Santa Ana City Councilman David Benavides to pull papers to challenge Janet Nguyen for Supervisor.Ã‚Â I also have a separate plea for my friend Paul, please rethink this.Ã‚Â You’ll just embarrass yourself. Who talked you into this? Van Tran? Dina Nguyen?Ã‚Â
