Tales From the ROV: Webster Guillory Files For Assessor
Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on March 7, 2014
My vacation from blogging is apparently over. I am currently locked inside the Orange County Registrar of Voters and have some stories to share with our readers.
Webster Guillory, the incumbent Orange County Assessor was thought to be retiring from his position after he did not pull papers to run for office yesterday. He shocked a lot of people today when he pulled papers at 1:00 today and gathered the necessary signatures to come back at 4:30 and file his papers to run for re-election.
I have heard of candidates filing at the last minute but generally incumbents do not pull this stunt. This has to be saddening news for Claude Parrish who was probably the front runner if Guillory did not run.
As of the writing of this article, Guillory has not qualified for the ballot, but they will likely determine if he qualifies later this evening when his nomination signatures are verified.
