I was working on a database of the part affiliation of all Orange County local elected officials. Finally, I have completed the project with all of the special 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 post.
We have added a button on the menu bar for our readers to always be able to access this database and use it for whatever research/political needs that they may have. Due to the length of th epost you are going to have to click the below link to read the rest of the post.

Posted by Chris Nguyen on December 17, 2012
There were a lot of vacancies this year. Three countywide posts and one school board seat remain vacant. All salaries noted below are base pay.
Four of Orange County’s eight countywide posts went vacant during 2012.
- Orange County Clerk-Recorder: Tom Daly (D) vacated the seat this month to become the 69th District’s State Assemblyman. Numerous candidates have either expressed interest behind the scenes or are rumored to be interested; none have made public statements. The job pays $139,256.40 (that extra 40 cents won’t even get you enough postage to send a letter). Apply online here by January 15.
- Orange County Auditor-Controller: David Sundstrom (R) vacated the seat in January to become Sonoma County Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector (yes, that really is a single office in Sonoma County). The job pays $173,097.60 per year (that 60 cents is crucial). Apply online here by January 15.
- Orange County Public Administrator: John Williams (R) resigned in January or February depending on how you interpret his resignation, un-resignation, and re-resignation saga. Former Assemblyman Ken Lopez-Maddox (R), who is also a former Garden Grove Councilman and former Capistrano Unified School District Board Member, is the first to publicly throw his hat in the ring. (12/19 Update:The previous sentence was ambiguously worded, so to clarify, Lopez-Maddox is running for the seat in the regularly scheduled June 2014 election but has not indicated if he will apply for the appointment.) The job pays $30,000 per year (but the Board of Supervisors frequently consolidates it with the more lucrative appointed post of Public Guardian). Apply online here by January 15.
- Orange County Superintendent of Schools: Bill Habermehl (R) vacated the seat in June, deciding it was time for him to retire. Seven of the eight countywide posts are filled by the County Board of Supervisors when there’s a vacancy. This is the eighth post, and the County Board of Education appointed Al Mijares (R) to fill the seat. The job pays $287,500 per year.
Many people have argued Clerk-Recorder, Auditor-Controller, Public Administrator, and various other County posts should be appointed by the Board of Supervisors instead of elected positions. Good luck with that. Just six months ago, 60.5% of Orange County voters rejected making Public Administrator an appointed position.
They move with great speed to fill Council vacancies in Little Saigon.
- Garden Grove City Council: Bruce Broadwater (D) vacated the seat this month to become Mayor of Garden Grove. Minutes after Broadwater became Mayor, the Council held the vote to fill his newly-vacated Council seat. New Councilman Chris Phan moved to nominate the November election’s 3rd place finisher, Phat Bui, but he failed to get a second on his nomination. Councilwoman Dina Nguyen (R) moved and Councilman Steve Jones (R) seconded the nomination of defeated Councilman Kris Beard (D), who came in 4th in the election, and the Council voted unanimously to appoint Beard to the seat. Beard was out of office for mere minutes. The job pays $8,093 per year.
- Westminster City Council: Tri Ta (R) vacated the seat this month to become Mayor of Westminster. In stunningly rapid fashion, the Westminster City Council left his seat vacant for mere minutes before appointing Margie Rice (R) after Ta replaced Rice as Mayor. In other words, Ta and Rice simply swapped seats. The jobs pays $10,206 per year.
The County’s smaller cities took a little more time.
- Stanton City Council: Councilman Ed Royce, Sr. (R) vacated his seat for health reasons in February. Rigoberto Ramirez (R) was appointed to fill the seat in March. Ramirez is up for election to a four-year term in 2014. The job pays $10,200 per year.
- Villa Park City Council: Councilman Bob Fauteux (R) passed away in February. Rick Barnett (R) was appointed to fill the seat in March and won election to a four-year term in November with no opponents. The job pays nothing.
For the second time this year, the Anaheim Union High School District Board is filling a vacancy.
- Anaheim Union High School District Board (February): Earlier this year in February, Jan Harp Domene (D) passed away unexpectedly at the age of 60. The board appointed Annemarie Randle-Trejo on a 3-1 vote in April. OC Political covered this process.
- Anaheim Union High School District Board (December): Jordan Brandman (D) vacated the seat this month to become an Anaheim City Councilman. The board will fill his seat early next year. The job pays $9,731.52.
Brandman originally won his AUHSD seat in a February 2008 special election after a petition overturned the appointment of Harald Martin (R), who was selected by the Board to fill the seat left vacant due to the unexpected passing of Denise Mansfield-Reinking (R) in May 2007.
The AUHSD board is on its third vacancy in six years.
- Municipal Water District of Orange County, Division 3: Director Ed Royce, Sr. (R) vacated his seat for health reasons in February. Wayne Osborne (R) was appointed to fill the seat in March and won election to a four-year term in a four-way race in November. The job pays $26,594 per year.

The New Republican Irvine City Council Majority:
Councilman Jeff Lalloway, Councilwoman-Elect Christina Shea, and Mayor-Elect Steven Choi
Since 2004, Republicans have held a 4-2 advantage among Orange County’s directly-elected mayors:
- Anaheim: Tom Tait (since 2010), Curt Pringle (2002-2010)
- Garden Grove: Bill Dalton (2004-2012)
- Orange: Carolyn Cavecche (2006-2012), Mark Murphy (2000-2006)
- Westminster: Margie Rice (Republican 2004-2012; Democrat 2000-2004)
The two Democrats were:
- Irvine: Sukhee Kang (2008-2012), Beth Krom (2004-2008)
- Santa Ana: Miguel Pulido (since 1994)
Anaheim’s Tait has Orange County’s only four-year mayoral seat, so he was not up for election this year. Major changes were in store with three mayors termed out (Garden Grove’s Dalton, Irvine’s Kang, and Orange’s Cavecche) and one mayor voluntarily retiring (Westminster’s Rice), leaving only Santa Ana’s Pulido seeking re-election this year.
While Steven Choi captured the Irvine mayoral seat for the Republicans, Bruce Broadwater of Garden Grove and Tita Smith of Orange captured their respective mayor’s posts for the Democrats.
The Republicans are:
- Anaheim: Tom Tait (term limit: 2018)
- Irvine: Steven Choi (term limit: 2016)
- Westminster: Tri Ta (no term limit)
The Democrats are:
- Garden Grove: Bruce Broadwater (term limit: 2020)
- Orange: Tita Smith (term limit: 2018)
- Santa Ana: Miguel Pulido (term limit: 2020)
It could be worse though, like the 2000-2002 line-up of directly-elected mayors, which had Orange’s Mark Murphy as the sole Republican:
- Anaheim: Tom Daly (1992-2002)
- Garden Grove: Bruce Broadwater (1994-2004)
- Irvine: Larry Agran (2000-2004)
- Orange: Mark Murphy (2000-2006)
- Santa Ana: Miguel Pulido (since 1994)
- Westminster: Margie Rice (2000-2004 as a Democrat; 2004-2012 as a Republican)
An odd sidenote about 2012: in an election that saw Asian Americans vote 3-1 for Barack Obama, Orange County’s Asian American directly-elected mayors went from consisting of one Democrat (Kang) to consisting of two Republicans (Choi and Ta).
While Cavecche was replaced by Smith in Orange, women lost ground as Rice was replaced by Ta in Westminster.
Anaheim, Garden Grove, and Santa Ana have eight-year term limits (two four-year terms in Anaheim and four two-year terms in Garden Grove and Santa Ana). Orange has a six-year term limit (three two-year terms). Irvine has a four-year term limit (two two-year terms). Westminster has no term limits (two-year terms).
Santa Ana’s mayoral term limit is the newest, having been adopted this month. Irvine’s mayoral term limit is the oldest, taking effect in 1991.
Anaheim has the toughest term limit on Councilmembers who want to be Mayor. A first-term Councilmember running for Mayor may only serve one mayoral term. A second-term Councilmember may not run for Mayor.
Excluding Westminster’s non-limit, Garden Grove and Irvine have the most generous term limit for Councilmembers who want to be Mayor. In both of those cities, when Councilmembers term out, they can run for Mayor, and when they term out as Mayor, they can run for Council, in a never-ending merry-go-round.
After the 2012 election, the mayoral median age is 60.5 with a mean age is 59.3:
- Garden Grove: Bruce Broadwater (74)
- Irvine: Steven Choi (68)
- Orange: Tita Smith (65)
- Santa Ana: Miguel Pulido (56)
- Anaheim: Tom Tait (54)
- Westminster: Tri Ta (39)
Before the 2012 election, the mayoral median age was 58 with a mean age of 62.3:
- Westminster: Margie Rice (83)
- Garden Grove: Bill Dalton (69)
- Irvine: Sukhee Kang (60)
- Santa Ana: Miguel Pulido (56)
- Anaheim: Tom Tait (54)
- Orange: Carolyn Cavecche (52)
The biggest age change was in Westminster, where Margie Rice was replaced by Tri Ta, who is 44 years younger than her. The smallest age change (excluding Tait and Pulido, for obvious reasons) was in Garden Grove, where Bill Dalton was replaced by Bruce Broadwater, who is 5 years older than him.
While Westminster had a dramatic age decrease for mayor, Garden Grove, Irvine, and Orange all had age increases for mayor.
The Democrat median and mean ages both increased from 58 to 65.
The Republican median age decreased from 61.5 to 54 while the Republican mean age decreased from 64.5 to 53.7.

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: Read the rest of this entry »

Long-time Garden Grove Councilman-turned-Mayor-turned-Councilman “Bulldozer” Bruce Broadwater (D) has made it official: he’s pulled and filed papers to run for Mayor of Garden Grove again, confirming that his June 27 mayoral fundraiser was no mere exploratory effort.
With Mayor Bill Dalton (R) termed out, Broadwater is the early front-runner for the mayor’s seat, unless Mayor Pro Tem Dina Nguyen (R), Councilman Steve Jones (R), or Councilman Kris Beard (D) decide to challenge Broadwater for the seat. Jones and Beard are both up for re-election to the council this year, but Nguyen and Broadwater would get free passes since neither of their council seats are up until 2014, so even if one of them makes an unsuccessful bid for mayor, they’re still on the council.
The sole other person to pull papers for Mayor against Broadwater is businessman Myke Cossota, who made an unsuccessful bid to unseat Dalton in 2010, losing in a landslide 74%-26%.
Broadwater has been either Mayor or Councilman for 18 of the last 20 years. Specifically, he was a Garden Grove City Councilman from 1992-1994, Mayor from 1994-2004, when he termed out and ran for Orange County Supervisor (losing in the runoff 55%-45% to Lou Correa), and returned to the City Council in 2006, where’s he been ever since.
For those of you wondering, “Bulldozer” Bruce Broadwater acquired his nickname from his aggressive use of redevelopment and eminent domain.
