We have a developing story at the Orange County Registrar of Voters. Troy Edgar, Los Alamitos Councilmember, pulled papers earlier today for the OC Clerk-Recorder’s race. His signatures are being challenged due to extremely unusual circumstances. More to come later.

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.

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 »

A reader sent me a note that Travis Allen had received $2,000 from the Orange County Employees Association. I told them to provide me with proof and they sent me the document that you see right below this:
I am not surprised to see Sharon Quirk-Silva on the form but Travis Allen actually caught me a bit off guard. This is a pretty bold move by OCEA to try to curry favor with a Republican and it will be interesting to hear what the Edgar camp has to say about this in the days leading up to the election.
Polling in this race that I pointed to in a previous post showed that Allen had a slight lead a week after absentee ballots arrived. The problem with that poll is the following result:
Travis Allen- 28.0%
Troy Edgar- 22.1%
This means that almost 50% of people are undecided which will make the mail that has arrived in recent weeks very important. I would also expect to see some hard-hitting roll-calls going out around town about the OCEA money from the Edgar campaign.
Fasten your seat belts for what should be some great political theatre over the next 4 days leading up to the election.

I am a huge fan of October 31st despite the fact that Chris Nguyen despises it. This year for Halloween I carved the pumpkins displayed below in honor of the upcoming Presidential Election.
I remember back in the days of Red County doing a post on Halloween where we pondered a political movie being made about Orange County. Just because I am feeling a bit nostalgic we are going to do an abridged version of that post here based on the idea that a movie about OC Political is being made.
The part of myself will be played by radio personality Petros Papadakis:
The part of Chris Nguyen will be played by Korean rap sensation PSY (Gangnam Style):
The part of Alan Lowenthal Democrat running for CD 47 will be played by NBC 4 weather reporter Fritz Coleman:
The part of Republican AD 65 candidate Chris Norby will be played by actor Craig T. Nelson:
The part of Republican AD 72 candidate Troy Edgar will be played by 30 rock actor Jack McBrayer:
Lastly, the part of Edgar opponent Travis Allen in AD 72 will be played by NY Jets Quarterback Tim Tebow:

Got an e-mail from Probolsky research yesterday that showed Travis Allen leading Troy Edgar by a slim margin in the hotly contested 72nd Assembly District race. It is important to note that a vast majority ov voters are undecided but this is clearly promising news for Travis Allen.
Here are the poll results:
On Saturday, October 13, 2012 Probolsky Research conducted a telephone survey of likely voters in California Assembly District 72.
TRAVIS ALLEN LEADS TROY EDGAR
Allen enjoys a lead over Edgar (28.0% to 22.1%) in the race for the 72
nd Assembly District. However, nearly half of voters remain undecided:
“An election for California State Assembly District 72 will be held in November. If you were voting today for State Assembly, for whom would you vote? Pick one. If you have already voted, please let me know who you chose. Travis Allen, Prefers Republican Party, Small Business Owner OR Troy Edgar, Prefers Republican Party, Businessman/Mayor.”
A total of 307 surveys were collected. A survey of this size yields a margin of error of +/- 5.7% with a 95% degree of confidence. Interviews were conducted with voters on both landline and cell phones and were conducted in English, Spanish and Vietnamese languages.
The turnout model consisted of those voters who voted at least 1 of 11/10 or 6/12, OR voted in at least 2 of 2/08, 6/08, 11/08, 5/09 or 6/10, with at least 1 being 11-08 PLUS those who registered to vote after 6/12.
This represents 62.2% of voters and 72.3% of households.

The OC Register came out in opposition to the Los Alamitos Utility Tax Expansion and blasted Troy Edgar in the Process.
Here are some of the best parts:
Mayor Edgar reportedly answered, “Is it a sales job? We want this to pass; so we put it in terms the common people can understand.”
Measure DD is incredibly overbroad, taking over 300 words to describe all of the technologies subject to its tax power, including text messages, cellphones, private phone networks, voice-over Internet, faxes, paging systems, routers, electronic billing, video conferencing, among many others.
It even taxes technologies not yet invented and prohibits residents from seeking an injunction against those taxes. In the event federal law changes and allows taxation of the Internet, Measure DD allows Los Alamitos to begin taxing it, too, without voter approval. Already the city taxes cell phones.

Conventional wisdom suggests that the winner in AD72 will be the candidate who is best able to reach out to Democrat voters. Troy Edgar’s campaign has apparently really taken this to heart, as they seem to be rebuilding their campaign around a theme of RECYCLING.
And no, I don’t mean that in an effort to appeal to voters in Huntington Beach or Seal Beach that Edgar has organized Beach Cleanup Days or anything like that.
No. Instead, Edgar’s campaign has taken to recycling their Press Releases.
Now obviously saying this is an effort to attract Democrat voters is in jest, but just how stalled is the Edgar campaign that they’re already having to take to using old Press Releases – this past week they sent out a release announcing endorsements from local Mayors, the same release they first sent out on 4/18/12 — to insinuate continued momentum?
Compare that with Allen’s campaign.
- Van Tran comes on board with the Allen campaign as a Senior Advisor.
- Troy Edgar lies to the press about lying to the Federal Elections Commission.
- Allen’s campaign announces the endorsements of Joe Dovinh and Long Pham.
It is clear which campaign has momentum, and which candidate isn’t just stuck in neutral – but seems to be cruising in reverse.

This came over the wire from the Troy Edgar for Assembly campaign…
Every Mayor in AD 72 Endorses Edgar
Bi-partisan consensus to elect Edgar to State Assembly
ORANGE COUNTY – Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar and leading candidate for the 72nd Assembly District announces the endorsement of every Mayor in every City within the new 72nd Assembly District.
“It is an honor to have earned the support of my peers in the District. Many of my fellow mayors have worked with me for years and they know that I will strive for the benefit of the local community,” said Edgar.
“As a veteran, I understand the importance of teamwork and finding colleagues who have your back and know that you will have theirs as well. I am humbled that Fountain Valley Mayor John Collins, Garden Grove Mayor Bill Dalton, Huntington Beach Mayor Don Hansen, Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido, Seal Beach Mayor Mike Levitt, and Westminster Mayor Margie Rice have all publically stated they have my back in the 72nd Assembly District,” Edgar added.
In addition to these local endorsements, Edgar has the support of every Republican member of the State Senate and the State Assembly representing Orange County in Sacramento.
Edgar is also endorsed and supported by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer’s Association, the Orange County Taxpayer’s Association, the Orange County Family PAC, the Orange County Business Council, the California Small Business Association, the California Women’s Leadership Association and the California Republican Assembly.
Troy Edgar is a husband and father of three sons, a homeowner, Navy veteran, owns and operates two businesses, and is serving his second term as Mayor of Los Alamitos. Edgar is also a regionally recognized leader as evidenced by his election as the Chairman of the Orange County Sanitation District. Troy and his wife Betty – a school teacher – live in Los Alamitos.
