The other Orange County blogs Red County and Total Buzz have already posted this.Ã‚Â But since it is another new develpoment in the ongoing saga of the Hoa Van Tran for Supervisor campaign, I may as well cover it here too.
The following email went out to the Democratic Party of Orange County Central Committee this afternoon.
Dear Central Committee Members:
The Chair has called for a Special Meeting to discuss the First Supervisorial District election and DPOC endorsement.Ã‚Â
Attached please find an agenda for this meeting.
The meeting is scheduled to take place next Tuesday, May 27th at 7:00 pm at the Teamsters Union Hall (140 S. Marks Way, Orange CA).
There are a number of parlimentary scenarios that could play out on Tuesday night. What should be noted is that the DPOC Bylaws require a 60% vote in favor for a non-incumbent to receive the Party endorsement. My understanding is that should this matter come to a vote,Ã‚Â Tran would need to maintain that 60% margin to retain the endorsement.Ã‚Â
At any rate, it is good that Frank Barbaro has called for a special meeting. This way the members get to have their say, one way or another.
