On Thursday, March 18, 2010, Tom Daly filed a legal challenge to Clerk-Recorder candidate Hugh Nguyenâ€™s ballot designation for the County Clerk-Recorderâ€™s race (Case No. 30-2010-00354431-CU-WM-CJC). Nguyenâ€™s actual title is Assistant Clerk, Files Management/Administration Division/Clerk of the Board.
Revelation of his lack of truthiness could not have come at a more inopportune time for Mr. Nguyen. Despite being the sole Republican running for the non-partisan Clerk Recorder’s office, Hugh Nguyen failed to receive the endorsement of his own party. This week seems to have gotten off to a bad start for Hugh.
We reported on Sunday March 14th that Hugh Nguyen is challenging incumbent Tom Daly for the Clerk-Recorder seat. Mr. Nguyen is a manager in the office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors. He has selected the designation of Assistant Orange County Clerk. Unfortunately for Nguyen, he may not be able to use that ballot designation.
In the Fourth District Supervisor contest to fill the unexpired term of recently elected Assemblyman Chris Norby, we have a full field of six candidates, three Republicans, and three Democrats in this technically non-partisan contest. On the Democratic side we have Anaheim City Councilwoman Lorri Galloway, La Habra City Councilwoman Rose Espinoza, and Buena Park Mayor Art Brown. On the Republican side there is Fullerton City Councilman Shawn Nelson, Anaheim City Councilman Harry Sidhu, and Businessman Richard Faher.
In a letter yesterday Nguyen confirmed his intentions to run for Clerk-Recorder. In his letter he incorrectly claims “the spending at the Clerk-Recorderâ€™s office is massively over budget.” What kind of “management” employee at the county would make such a statement, with no factual basis?
Orange County Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly announced today that he has decided to not run for the Fourth District Board of Supervisor’s seat vacated by Chris Norby last month to take his seat in the State Assembly. The possible replacement of Norby by a democrat was placed into question when Anaheim City Council member Lorri Galloway and La Habra Council member Rose Espinoza announced their desire to run for the seat.
Last night there were two events at Angels Stadium. The first was a mixer hosted by the Latino Legislative Caucus.
