Only Eight Councilmembers in 3rd Supervisorial District Haven’t Endorsed Spitzer: Including Deborah Pauly, Larry Agran, Beth Krom, Sukhee Kang, Lorri Galloway, Deborah Gavello, and Rebecca Gomez

Posted by HBK on March 7, 2012

Examining Todd Spitzer’s endorsements, it’s clear Deborah Pauly has little support from local City Councilmembers in her bid for Supervisor.  Excluding Pauly herself, only Irvine Democrats Larry Agran, Beth Krom, and Sukhee Kang, along with Tustin Democrats Deborah Gavello and Rebecca Gomez, and Anaheim’s Democrat Lorri Galloway and DTS-turned-Republican Gail Eastman have not endorsed Spitzer – though none of them have endorsed Pauly either.

A major part of a Supervisor’s job is working with local Councilmembers to address their mutual constituents’ concerns, and it’s clear Pauly isn’t up to the job.  Considering the Councilmembers work with each other on regional committees and boards to address regional concerns, it’s even more notable that her colleagues across the Third Supervisorial District know she isn’t up to the job.

The most shocking fact is that all of her colleagues on her own Villa Park City Council endorsed Spitzer, as it’s rare for a Councilmember to endorse a colleague’s opponent, but in this case all of them did. They’re the ones who know her best, and they know she’s not up to the job.

Spitzer is endorsed by the overwhelming majority of councilmembers in the Third Supervisorial District, including all 5 Republican Mayors and the majorities of all 5 Councils with Republican majorities:

Orange (All)
Mayor Carolyn Cavecche (Campaign Co-Chair)
Denis Bilodeau
Jon Dumitru
Tita Smith
Fred Whitaker

Yorba Linda (All)
Mayor Nancy Rikel
John Anderson
Tom Lindsey
Mark Schwing
Jim Winder

Villa Park (All Except for Pauly)
Mayor Rich Ulmer
Bob Fauteux (Endorsed Before His Untimely Passing)
Bill MacAloney
Brad Reese

Tustin (All of the Council’s Republicans)
Mayor Jerry Amante
Al Murray
John Neilsen

Anaheim (Majority)
Mayor Tom Tait
Kris Murray
Harry Sidhu

Irvine (Both of the Council’s Republicans)
Steven Choi
Jeff Lalloway
