Andrew Do Announces His Candidacy For Soon-To-Be-Vacated Orange County Supervisor Seat

Posted by Greg Woodard on November 20, 2014

Andrew Do, former Chief of Staff for current Supervisor and newly-elected State Senator Janet Nguyen, has announced his candidacy for the special election for the First District Supervisor seat that will occur in early 2015.  Do is expected to face Democrat and perennial candidate Lou Correa (who is termed out of the 34th District State Senate seat that Nguyen is taking over).  Another potential candidate is Chris Phan, a Republican councilman from Garden Grove, who has already announced his intentions to run for the supervisor seat.

Andrew Do to Run for Supervisor in First District Special Election

Nguyen, Bates,Walters and Royce to serve as Campaign Co-Chairs

Westminster, CA – – Today, Andrew Do announced his candidacy for Orange County Supervisor in the First District, where a special election will be called soon to replace Senator-elect Janet Nguyen.

Supervisor Nguyen, along with Supervisor Pat Bates, Senator and Congresswoman-Elect Mimi Walters and Congressman Ed Royce will serve as honorary co-chairs of Do’s campaign.

“I am honored that so many community leaders have encouraged me to run for Supervisor to follow in the footsteps of Janet Nguyen, who has done such a tremendous job for our communities,” said Do.

“The First District is the diverse and dynamic heart of Orange County, with many needs that are different from other parts of our county,” said Do. “I believe government can help meet those needs and can do so in a fiscally conservative and responsible manner that protects taxpayers.”

Do said his priorities will be to help create jobs, assist small business, rebuild the local economy, and improve roads, parks and other infrastructure. As a former Deputy District Attorney and in light of State prisoner early releases, Do will make public safety one of his top priorities. Do opposes tax increases and strongly supports Proposition 13.

“Too many of our neighborhoods and communities in central Orange County were neglected for far too long. We have made tremendous progress in correcting things over the last seven years and Andrew is committed to continuing and expanding on the work we have done,” said Supervisor and Senator-Elect Janet Nguyen.

Andrew Do is a prominent central county businessman, attorney and Republican who currently serves as Supervisor Nguyen’s Chief of Staff. Previously, he has been an Orange County Deputy District Attorney and Garden Grove City Councilmember. Do has been elected to serve as President of the Asian Bar of California and as President of the Vietnamese-American Bar Association of Southern California. He was selected by the U.S. Department of Justice to represent Orange County at the National District Attorney Association Advocacy College at the University of South Carolina. Do received his J.D. Degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. He taught for three years as an Adjunct Professor at Cal State University, Fullerton and previously served as a Judge Pro Tem at Orange County West Municipal Court.

    Lou Correa is indeed a perennial who needs to retire. He lied about voting against high-speed rail and is owned by the unions. He also stiffed the 1st District once already — he was its Supervisor when he jumped to the legislature.

      Even worse, Lou is completely in the bag for Anaheim’s Kleptocracy. Still, anyone who boasts about following in Janet Nguyen’s footsteps is either a lunatic or a crook.

    Andrew Do resigned from the Garden Grove council because he didn’t live in Garden Grove but was getting increasingly considerable flack for living in a guard gated Santa Ana neighborhood.

    I hear Lou Correa endorsed a man who was Dishonorably Discharged from the Army, for the last Garden Grove City Council election. Trying to push him on the community was a terrible act. I am glad the community was not stupid and he did not win. Lou Correa obviously has no regard or integrity. Andrew Do was forced to resign from the Garden Grove City Council as he lied about actually living in the city. Thank God, Chris Phan is running. A Navy Jag Officer, Orange County, Deputy District Attorney and current City Councilman. We finally have a candidate worth voting for. A candidate like him does not come around very often.

      Christ Phan is ” Linh kieng”, all he can do is put on the uniform to ” Lay le” with the Vietnamese communities. i am still investigating about the care package he claim to send to us when we were deployed to Irag back in 2008, 2009.

      Lou Correa and Mike Quang Tran they look a like, they are both hairless that why they li support each other.
