BOE, 4th District: Van Tran Announces Candidacy

Posted by Dominus on September 15, 2013

Earlier this week, former Assemblyman Van Tran jumped into what is already a packed-field of Republican contenders vying for the open Board of Equalization seat, 4th District.

BOE is one of those positions that most people know very little about.  State legislators who are at the end of their political life in the Legislature usually find themselves running for the BOE (i.e. Bill Leonard, George Runner, Ray Haynes).

Up to this point, the race was all about Assemblywoman Diane Harkey and state Senator Mark Wyland.

Senator Lou Correa and former Senator Tom Harman both have money in their respective BOE accounts but it’s more likely a place to park their campaign money.

Let’s hope for some fireworks in this race with filing deadline approximately five months away.
