This just in from Steve Young:
Steve Young filed a â€œCandidate Intention Statementâ€ with the Newport Beach City Clerk’s office. He is running for City Council in the 3rd District of Newport Beach for the November 2010 election. Don Webb has held the 3rd District Council seat for two terms, the limit of the office in Newport Beach, making this an open seat in the fall election.
Steve and his wife Solange have been residents of Newport Beach since 2003.
Mr. Young says, â€œMy philosophy is to â€˜look, see, do!â€™ I examine problems and needs, I see opportunities and obstacles, and I do the work to seize the opportunities and solve problems. Washington and Sacramento are at loggerheads. This prevents the â€˜look, see, doâ€™ approach to government that we need now to address the real problems of jobs and the economy making working at the local level even more important.â€
Previously Mr. Young ran for Congress in the 48th District against John Campbell, each time increasing his numbers against Campbell. His only declared 3rd District opponent Edward Reno, is Allergan Corporationâ€™s political lobbyist.
