The Futurama Looks Bright for Galloway

 

The future really does look bright for Anaheim City Council member Lorri “Leela Warrior Princess” Galloway in her race for third in the Fourth Supervisor Special Election. She has again regained the lead over Buena Park Mayor Art “Robot Santa” Brown. As of Wednesday night, Lorri has a 27 vote lead over Brown. 

  Vote Count Percentage
SHAWN NELSON 18,537 30.5%
HARRY SIDHU 11,275 18.5%
LORRI GALLOWAY 9,868 16.2%
ART BROWN 9,841 16.2%
ROSE MARIE ESPINOZA 7,505 12.3%
RICHARD FAHER 3,825 6.3%

    Last I checked third place still leaves her out of the race, right? So what’s your point?

    Im not getting something here. Ar you bing sarati in trumpeting Lorris sn to 3rd plc by 27 votes? How much did she spendon her campaign as opposed to Art Bron? Its got to be a lifetime most embarassing moment for her to place this low in an election this close to At Brown who most people didnt even know was still in the race. Jeez Art Brown? If I was LorriI would leave town from the emabarassment.

    As a previous candidate for Supervisor in this district, a longtime elected official, and actual resident of the 4th when she announced her candidacy, Rose Espinoza had just as much right to run for this office as Lorri.
    But Galloway’s only real chance to get in to the runoff was to have her supporters bully the other Democrats out of the race. I’m glad Brown and Espinoza didn’t cave in.
    Had OC Labor spent their money on a candidate voters could actually trust instead of Galloway, they might have a pro-labor Supervisor the seat today, or at least a viable challenge for Nelson in November.

    The OC dems. should have pressured the other candidates out of the race (or at least have made an endorsement); that is how you run a party that wins races. Like it or not, some real politic would have changed the outcome of this contentious race.

    The reps. got behind Nelson and look at the results. On that note, it should be pointed out [Publious] that the lion share of OC labor money went to Sidhu. Clearly, the wisdom of labor leaders knows no bounds.

    Mistakes were made in the Galloway camp., but she was alone and that is shame, not for the candidate but for the county. It it hard to comprehend how much of a blow to dems. the election of Nelson will be.

      In hindsight, it sure looks like the Dem establishment should have gotten behind Art Brown and pressured Galloway out of the race. The fact that the man was able to get near-identical results, despite spending almost nothing, is a telling verdict on which of the two is a better politician.

      Sure, it was a bonehead move for labor to be spending its money on Sidhu, but Galloway was hardly ‘alone’ — the money for the mini-billboard-sized pictures of herself plastered all over my neighborhood, and her direct-mail pieces in my mailbox, sure came from somewhere.

      Galloway ran an inept campaign and acted from the outset like she was entitled to the office. If the only way for her to win was to have the field cleared for her and have millions in labor money funneled to her and no one else, well, maybe she shouldn’t have run in the first place.
