Judge Sanders has ruled this morning that Rodenhuis is eligible to run for county Treasurer-Tax Collector. Rodenhuis said in an email statement; “I am happy, but not surprised by the decision. The suit was frivolous and a waste of the court’s time and the taxpayer’s money. This is not theÂ kind of leadership Orange County wants or needs in a time of fiscal stress.”
UPDATE: Judge Franz Miller has issued a ruling against Hieu Nguyen over his ballot designation. Hugh Nguyen got a little break though, he can use the “Assistant Clerk” title that he has with the Clerk of the Board. We have also learned that there is an additional challenge to Hugh/Hieu Nguyen’s ballot designation. This one of of his name. It seem that Mr. Nguyen, who is running for County Clerk-Recorder, has allegedly filed to run under an alias. Mr. Nguyen’s legal name is Hieu Nguyen. He is using an “Americanized” version of his first name Hugh.
