Early Endorsement List

I just received an email from our chairman Scott Baugh regarding early endorsement candidates for the OC GOP Central Committee to consider. For the most part, these candidates don't have other GOP competition, may be incumbents who have a good track record, and lastly have taken the no union contribution pledge as well as the no tax or fee increase pledge. I will be looking forward to viewing their questionnaires that they all had to fill out and considering these candidates in due course. The list of names are as follows....

Tom Tait - Anaheim, Mayor

Deb Pauly - Villa Park, Council

Jeff Lalloway - Irvine, Council

James Righeimer- Costa Mesa, Council

Baron Night - Buena Park, Council

Ed Reno - Newport Beach, Council

Leslie Daigle - Newport Beach, Council

Fred Whitaker - Orange, Council

Denis Bilodeau - Orange, Council

Kevin Muldoon - South Orange County Community College District, Trustee Area 2

Sandra Crandall - Fountain Valley Elementary School District, Trustee

Anna Bryson - Capistrano Unified School District, Trustee Area 4

Larry Christensen - Capistrano Unified School District, Trustee Area 7

Phillip Yarbrough- Rancho Community College District, Trustee 2

Mark McCurdy - Fountain Valley, Council

John Collins- Fountain Valley, Council

Guy Garrozzo - Fountain Valley, Council

If any one has any issue with this list, they should get in touch with myself or their Central Committee representatives from their district. I know most of the candidates on this list and for the most part have no problems with it, but I would like feedback from people if they have any problems with these candidates as it relates to how they have governed or their political philosophy.

I also should note that these candidates will be taken up at next Monday's Central Committee meeting at the Irvine Hyatt at 7pm. The Chairman needed to give seven days notice to members per our Bylaws to consider early endorsements. All other contested endorsements will go through our Endorsements Committee and be voted on at the September Central committee meeting.

    Yes, I have issues with your list. What about Tustin City Council? Any comments on that?

    It's not "my list", it's an early endorsement list. Who on this list do you not like?

    We need to chat about Tustin. How many candidates are there? Who are the Republicans? I reached out to a friend I went to Mater Dei with that's running. His name is Tim Haider. We're gonna chat this weekend and I forwarded him the endorsement pack to fill out. Who else do you like in Tustin for Council?

    I will be pulling Leslie Daigle off the early endorsement list tomorrow night...for starters. I found out she has a horrible voting record in Newport.
