Longtime Irvine Councilman Larry Agran and his sidekicks Mary Ann Gaido and Melissa Fox tried to fool the voters of Irvine into thinking that the over-development of their community was somehow the fault of the current Irvine City Council majority. Well it didn’t work, in great part because of the brilliant Agran Audit campaign, which gave the people of Irvine access to the OC Great Park audit information which was a stunning indictment of Agran’s wasteful ways.
The Republican majority on the Irvine City Council was bolstered by the addition of conservative Lynn Schott, who turned out to be the top vote-getter on Nov. 4. Councilman Jeff Lalloway also won, in a squeaker, over Fox. The dreadful Agran came in almost last – a spot that was reserved for Evan Chemers, who has now lost badly in two unsuccessful City Council campaigns. Continue reading
If only these kids could have voted for Jose…because the voters sure didn’t
The early returns are in with regard to today’s 2014 OC General Election. These votes represent the most frequent absentee voters. While the results could change the fact is that candidates with large leads in the early returns typically go on to win.

And over in the 65th Assembly District the Democratic incumbent, Sharon Quirk-Silva, has only 42% of the vote while the Republican, Young Kim, has over 57% of the vote. That race appears to be over but the margin is only about 5,000 votes. Continue reading
Irvine’s City Council Majority is hosting a 2014 Irvine Election Campaign Kick-Off Reception tonight, August 14, 2014, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at the Hilton Hotel in Irvine at 18800 MacArthur Blvd.
The candidates for the Irvine City Council in November’s General election are set, according to the Irvine City Clerk. They include:
Agran and Fox are running as a slate. Schott is looking to team up with the Council majority, which includes Lalloway, and Even Chemers is not allied with anyone. He is making his second run for the Council after losing previously in 2012., with 10.7% of the vote, according to Smart Voter. Schott got 18.9% of the vote in that same election, just missing victory by about 1% of the vote. Continue reading
