    More Papers Pulled and Filed for Orange Council Race

    Orange Unified Trustee Kim Nichols officially filed for reelection, the last OUSD incumbent to do so for the four positions up for reelection in November. With all incumbents filing, the deadline for candidate filing will be Friday August 11th. Some surprises seem in store in the final days of filing. Villa Park Area 4 Trustee Kathy Moffat, who many see as the most vulnerable of the four candidates, so far has no challengers. Melissa Smith appears to have the strongest opponent with Republican Party insider Alexia Deligianni challenging Smith for the Anaheim Hills Trustee Area #1 seat. As of August 7th, a total of seven candidates have filed for the four seats. Each candidate runs for a specific Trustee Area seat (they must reside in the area), but are elected by the voters from throughout the Orange Unified School District.

    Chapman University student Andrew Hinger became the 14th person to pull papers for the November Orange City Council race. Robert Douglas joined Darren Smith in filing papers. Normally closed on Friday’s, the Orange City Clerk’s office will be open for filing on Friday August 11th. The deadline however will be August 16th because incumbent Carolyn Cavecche will not compete in the council race because she has filed for the mayor’s race.

    August 11th will also be the last day for filed candidates to officially withdraw and have their names not appear on the ballot.
