My Political Career is Over and Other Morsels From L.A. County Elections.

On May 12, 2011, as a member of the West Covina Unified School District Board of Education I voted to terminate the contract of the Superintendent. As these things go it was a tumultuous affair. I left the meeting after the announcement hoping that the angry supporters of the Superintendent would just let me get to my car. On the way out a West Covina Planning Commissioner, resident of Rowland Unified School District and candidate for West Covina City Council HERB REDHOLTZ told me, “Your political career is over”. I quipped that maybe I would run for council. Of course I didn’t run for council, I sought re-election.

Fast forward to November 8, 2011 results.

The results for THREE seats in West Covina Unified

Votes

2152  STEVE COX
2107  MIKE SPENCE
1979  CAMIE POULOS

1440  IAN JONES
1130  DAVID BARRILE
944  STEPHANI J BROVIAK

The results for TWO Seats on the West Covina City Council

3473  STEVE HERFERT
3154  FREDRICK SYKES

2880  KARIN ARMBRUST
2203  HERB REDHOLTZ

Not gloating, I’m just saying…..

And They’re back !

Remember Susan Brooks? Brooks ran two spirited campaigns for Congress against Jane Harman over a decade ago. She was elected to the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council.

Rob Hammond the former Mayor of Monrovia was elected to the Monrovia Unified School District.

They’re not back!

Rudy Svornich was unsuccessful in his comeback try to the Los Angeles City Council. A disappointment for Republicans.

Incumbents win!

In most jurisdictions incumbents won. Of course there were a few exceptions, the biggest was the defeat of two El Monte Councilwomen, who had supported bringing Walmart to El Monte.

Term Limits?

There is always talk about getting rid of term limits in Sacramento. San Marino adopted term limits for City Council members with 75% of the vote. People re-elect incumbents and then vote for term limits. Go Figure.
