Could the forgotten third candidate for the 2nd Supervisorial District help Steel?

Karina Onofre Banner


Alan Schlar

State Assemblyman Allan Mansoor and State BOE Member Michelle Steel will surely take giant whacks at each other in this year’s race for the 2nd Supervisorial District, but there is also forgotten third candidate.  That would be Alan Schlar, a marketing executive in Huntington Beach who does not belong to a political party.

Schlar ran against Congressman Dana Rohrabacher in 2012, and got just over 5,500 votes, according to Smart Voter.  The Democrat in that election, Ron Varasteh, got over 31,000 votes.  Rohrabacher doubled down with over 73,000 votes.

Schlar’s beliefs are a mixed bag.  You can find his platform on his congressional campaign website (as he does not appear to have a supervisorial campaign page up yet).  He wants to repeal ObamaCare but he is for a national sales tax that would fund a single-payer health insurance system.  He is for building the Keystone Pipeline and also supports using natural gas reserves in the U.S. to replace oil.  There is no mention of how he feels about fracking.  Nor do we know what he stands for relative to County issues.

While I doubt many folks will take Schlar seriously the real question is will he take enough votes away from Mansoor to help Steel win the race?  It figures to be a close election and Steel stands to do well as the only female candidate.

I personally won’t be endorsing Steel because she backed the Agranistas in Irvine.  That’s right she backed Democrat Sukhee Kang for Mayor of Irvine in 2010.

I have never been a big fan of Mansoor because of his antipathy towards Latinos but I rather err with him than ever support an Agranista.

As for Schlar, he seems to have a tepid campaign at best.  He doesn’t figure to matter much in this race and we can only hope that his presence on the ballot doesn’t lead to a Steel victory.

  1. “I have never been a big fan of Mansoor because of his antipathy towards Latinos but I rather err with him than ever support an Agranista.”………….. Hmmmmmm

    Latinos, Latinos, Latinos,,,,,,, blah, blah, blah!

    How can I not be a racist if you, Mr. Editor, are using the race to be the only qualification to oppose Mansoor.

    Same stupid Latino racism ended in the election of biggest communist nutcase Brown just because Meg was not Latina enough for you Latinos.

    Call me racist but that is why I see the Latinos to be the biggest danger to the California prosperity and I hope that reasonable Americans will hold to their guns when it comes to release 20,000,000 illegal Latinos to become voting iLeft force in the USA.

    If the Latinos want to be USA citizens they must first visibly uphold American vs.Communistic values.

  2. Mansoor is not an issue, I do not know the guy and I do not really care about him. What bugs me, however, is why every nonwhite and not gentile person is using his race for a political qualification and if opposed by white or gentile he/she is labeled racist, bigot and antisemitic.

    So that is today free world and some supervisory election will not change it.
