Does Quirk-Silva know what district she is running for? The 65th Assembly District does not include even one block of Santa Ana. The 65th Assembly District includes parts of these cities: Continue reading
It looks like local Democrats in the 55th Assembly District are not happy with the party leaders who recruited a carpetbagger, former Irvine Councilman Sukhee Kang, to run for Bob Huff’s seat in the 29th State Senate District.
A Democrat in Fullerton named Josh Newman is considering running against Kang for Huff’s seat. Josh Newman, is an Army veteran and he is the founder and executive director of ArmedForce2WorkForce.org, a non-profit that helps vets find work. He is also the vice president of the Democrats of North Orange County and is active with the state Democratic party, according to the O.C. Register.
Kang is however damaged goods in the wake of the brutal Great Park audit which shows that Kang, and his Democratic colleagues on the Irvine City Council, Larry Agran and Beth Krom, screwed the taxpayers by wasting millions of dollars that should have been used to develop the Great Park but were instead used to pay off lobbyists and PR hacks.

This lawsuit filed by the ACLU is not reflective of the attitudes of the city’s Korean community at large. I am a proud resident of the city of Fullerton, all four of my children attended public schools in Fullerton, and as a first-time Korean American candidate running against an incumbent, I received over 56% of the vote in Fullerton.

Former State Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva held a St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser tonight to raise money for her next campaign. That’s right she is going to try to win back her seat in the 65th Assembly District in two years – in 2016.
Quirk-Silva was soundly defeated by a former Ed Royce staffer, Young Kim, in the November, 2014 General Election. Kim got over 42,000 votes and Quirk-Silva barely cleared 35,000 votes.
The 2014 General Election was a tough one for the O.C. Democrats. They also lost in the 34th State Senate District, where Janet Nguyen trounced former State Assemblyman Jose Solorio. And the Democratics on the Irvine and Huntington Beach City Councils got the boot as well. Continue reading
