Five candidates met today’s 5 PM deadline to file for the March 9, 2021 special election for the Second District seat on the Orange County Board of Supervisors to fill the vacancy left when Supervisor Michelle Steel was elected to Congress.  March 9 is six weeks from tomorrow.

Three Republican men and two Democratic women filed.

Here they are with their party affiliations, city of residence, and ballot designations:

  • John M. W. Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa), California State Senator
  • Katrina Foley (D-Costa Mesa), Mayor/Orange County Businessowner
  • Janet Rappaport (D-Newport Beach), Tax Attorney
  • Michael Vo (R-Fountain Valley), Mayor/Business Owner
  • Kevin Muldoon (R-Newport Beach), Councilman/Small Businessman

The Registrar’s office states the five candidates above have qualified for the ballot.

Huntington Beach Councilman Mike Posey (R) withdrew from the race.

  1. I suppose if we can’t expect Vo and Muldoon to put values ahead of ambition, we can go ahead and congratulate Foley.

  2. Too bad to see Moorlach taken down by the Brough sex scandal. Muldoon will make a great supervisor.
