Jan Grimes Appointed OC Auditor-Controller: We Have Vote Totals

Posted by Chris Emami on April 16, 2013

My iPad died earlier, right after the final update and I did not get the chance to do an official post announcing that Jan Grimes was appointed Auditor-Controller. It was fairly easy to track the vote totals since only four candidates even made it to the interview process. Following up from earlier I am posting a list of votes that each Supervisor cast yesterday for Auditor-Controller. Later tonight stay tuned for an interview with Supervisor Shawn Nelson that we will be posting in its entirety. Now onto the vote recap:

Round 1

In this opening round, each Supervisor could vote for up to two applicants to advance to the second round with an applicant needing to finish in the top two in order to advance. Here’s the breakdown:

Janet Nguyen

Eric Woolery

John Moorlach

Jan Grimes

Todd Spitzer

Jan Grimes

Shawn Nelson

George Beck
Jan Grimes

Pat Bates

Eric Woolery
Jan Grimes

Here are the results from this round:

Making The Cut

Jan Grimes (4 votes)
Eric Woolery (2 votes)

Missing The Cut

George Beck (1 vote)
James Benuzzi (0 Votes)

Round 2

In this second round, each Supervisor could vote for up to one applicant in order to give an idea of who would be the top choice. Here’s the breakdown:

Janet Nguyen

Eric Woolery

John Moorlach

Jan Grimes

Todd Spitzer

Jan Grimes

Shawn Nelson

Jan Grimes

Pat Bates

Eric Woolery

Here are the results from this round:

Jan Grimes (3 votes)
Eric Woolery (2 votes)

Final Motion

With the top vote getter being Jan Grimes, John Moorlach made a motion to appoint Jan Grimes. Todd Spitzer seconded the motion and the vote which was more of a formality at this point was as follows

Janet Nguyen- Aye
John Moorlach- Aye
Todd Spitzer- Aye
Shawn Nelson- Aye
Pat Bates- Aye

This made it a 5-0 vote on the actual appointment.

    Looks like Moorlach was able to wheel and deal himself an open seat to run for in 2014 if his Governor’s race falls through. If there is an appointment for a new D.A. in the next year
    Moorlach will have a hard time paying them both back.

    With todays appointment of Democrat Jan Grimes as Orange County Auditor- Controller did Republicans Supervisors John Moorlach, Todd Spitzer, and Shawn Nelson
    Moorlach violate the OCGOP bylaws they swore to uphold.
