Sanitation Fees Are Going UP!!!

Posted by OC Insider on March 29, 2013

The Orange County Sanitation District had a vote a couple of days ago that should anger all taxpayers over the huge rate increase that they have placed on the Orange County taxpayers. I was at the meeting and spoke about the increase and how it violated Proposition 218. The next day I made a records request from the Orange County Sanitation District and found out exactly how each voter cast their vote at the meeting so I could post it here. Just to further outrage Republicans I used the database that one of the Chrises created to show the party affiliation of each voter using colors.

Republican, Democrat, Independent??? The Partisan Affiliations of Everyone Holding Office In Orange County

Posted by Chris Emami on March 22, 2013

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.

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: Read the rest of this entry »

In the meantime, here is the proposed early endorsement list (remember, several of these names will be pulled and debated at the meeting):

1. Steven Choi for Mayor of Irvine 

2. Christina Shea for Irvine City Council

3. Steve Mensinger for Costa Mesa City Council

4. Gary Monahan for Costa Mesa City Council

5. Colin McCarthy for Costa Mesa City Council

6. Costa Mesa City Charter

7. Devin Dwyer for Huntington Beach City Council

8. Dave Sullivan for Huntington Beach City Council

9. Huntington Beach Property Tax Protection Initiative

10. Peter Kim for La Palma City Council

11. Ray Grangoff for Orange City Council

12. Jon Dumitru for Mayor of Orange

13. Mark Murphy for Orange City Council

14. Bruce Whitaker for Fullerton City Council

15. Travis Kiger for Fullerton City Council        

16. Jennifer Fitzgerald for Fullerton City Council

17. Lucille Kring for Anaheim City Council

18. Mike Munzing for Aliso Viejo City Council

19. Nancy Rikel for Yorba Linda City Council

20. Mark Schwing for Yorba Linda City Council

21. Denis Bilodeau for Orange County Water District Director

26. Charles Hart for Santa Ana City Council

27. Rob Johnson for Cypress City Council

28. Gary DeLong for Congress

29. Tony Beall for Rancho Santa Margarita City Council

The meeting starts at 7 PM. The early endorsements list above will function essentially as a consent calendar; a number of people will be pulled off the list for separate debate, discussion, and vote.

This is simply a proposed list. These endorsements have not yet been approved by the Central Committee.
