2012 City Council Party Affiliation Post

Posted by Chris Emami on November 14, 2012

Chris Nguyen did a great job putting together a local database of all party affiliations for candidates running for local office. I thought that I would take the time to expand on his post and show a database of all Orange County Councilmembers (Also OC Board of Supervisors) that will be serving on City Councils starting next month and what party they are affiliated with.

Please note that a couple of races could potentially change based on a close finish and not all votes being counted. This post will be added to our website in a permanent tab that we will be creating at the top of the site.

Here is the database:

  1. Swell idea but you forgot Wendy Leece, a Republican, in Costa Mesa. Her term expires in 2014. Genis and Mensinger are clear winners in this race. Monahan MIGHT be returned.

  2. Don't judge a book by its cover said

    Might be time for Wendy Leece and Sandy Genis to change their party affiliation to Democrat. The issues at the Costa Mesa City Council during the past two years really forced everyone to reveal where they stand on basic economic and governance principles.

  3. Boy, Chris, I don’t know where you’re getting your “news”… Wendy Leece was elected to her 2nd 4-year term in 2010… it expires, and she’s termed-out, in 2014. She and Jim Righeimer hold the two council seats that were not up this time around. Eric Bever was termed-out and got his fanny whipped in a race for the Mesa Consolidated Water District seat held by President Fred Bockmiller – another Republican you guys turned your backs on. The three Costa Mesa council seats contested look to be filled with former mayor Sandy Genis, appointed incumbent Steve Mensinger (who sweet-talked Foley into running for the school district seat, then was appointed to her seat on the council) and incumbent Gary Monahan. That seat is still in doubt as John Stephens is challenging him for it and the vote is close. I know you fellas don’t care for Wendy too much since she violated the “Baugh rule”, but she’s still a Republican and deserves to be acknowledged as a sitting councilwoman. Check your sources…

    “Grimm”, who ever you are, there are no “charges made against me”. Another case of bad information. You guys really need to do your homework. It’s no wonder my Republican party is in such bad shape – especially here in Orange County, where Scott Baugh seems to be leading a mass suicide! Check that Kool-Aid, my friends…

      Help me out here then. Did Wendy Leece run unopposed for Newport Mesa Unified School District this year, or am I living in the bizzarro world?

      • Wendy DID NOT run for anything this year. All the open seats on the NMUSD were unopposed, as were the seats on the Newport Beach council races. Since your leaders in the OC GOP detest Wendy for actually doing what she was elected to do – represent the people of Costa Mesa and not the heels-dug-in dogma preached by the Reverend Baugh – I’m not surprised they’re feeding you bogus information. You’re a young fella and seem pretty smart – at least, that’s what your classmate, my nephew,
        tells me – so I suggest you occasionally try to take a big step back and put what you’re being told into perspective. You’re the future of my party – YOU and your peers need to figure it out. We’re now at the short end of a supermajority in Sacto, so the Dems can just ignore us, period. Not good.

        • Chris Emami said

          I called the OC ROV today and chatted with a few people on this and it appears that Wendy Leece did appear in the filing log. However, as you correctly pointed out she did not file for any office so she will serve 2 more years on the City Council. I will fix the chart later this evening.

          Out of curiosity what class did I attend with your Nephew and who is your Nephew?

  4. Anthony Kuo said

    Out of curiosity … does anyone have results from tonight’s City Selection Committee’s picks for OCTA?

  5. Not a problem. It was my own faulty memory of seeing Wendy Leece in the filing log that caused the problem in the first place. The fact that all NMUSD races did not appear on the ballot was no help.

    I went to high school at Canyon in Anaheim so I assume we had a class in college together?

  6. Greg Diamond said

    Huh. Thanks. Needs some work on our end.

    Jan Flory just clinched it over Travis Kiger today; no recount will take place, so that needs to change.

  7. [...] districts and county seats being added. I also fixed some errors in the previous versions (here, here, and here) and have combined the database into one [...]
