Here is part 5 in this 7 part series that is going out this week on the blog.
Thank you to Meridian Pacific for the use of the map to show this district:
This Assembly district is currently represented by Assemblyman Jose Solorio and represents Santa Ana, Anaheim (portion), and Orange (portion). With that being said here is the break-down of who has pulled papers:
Lupe Moreno– She is involved with the Minutemen and also used to be a member of the Central Committee before being ousted this past election.
Charles Hart– Former candidate for Santa Ana Mayor and current appointed member of the Central Committee. *Incumbent.
Thomas Anthony Gordon– Clearly we here at OC Political have to cheer for our fellow blogger Thomas Gordon who is running for re-election. *Incumbent.
Brett Elliott Franklin– He is a former member of the Santa Ana City Council and current elected member of the OC GOP Central Committee.
Timothy “Tim” Ryan Whitacre– Tim is a current elected member of the Central Committee and also the member who chose to challenge Scott Baugh for the Chairmanship this past year. *Incumbent.
Robert Morris Hammond– He is currently the only hope for Republicans in the 69th Assembly District for the Assembly seat and is a nice guy from my interactions with him. *Incumbent.
Cuong Sin Cao– He is a very quiet individual who has been a solid vote on the Central Committee during his tenure. *Incumbent.
Gwen A. Dyrud– Gwen Dyrud was appointed to this seat at some point in the past year and can run as an incumbent on the ballot. *Incumbent.
Readers help me out by adding info on any candidates that I may have left out and feel free to fill me in on the candidates I found nothing on.
