    Blog Reports Orange Council Candidate
    Lives in Newport


    Frank Johnson of the Orange Politicos blog has a posting stating that Orange City Council candidate Carol Rudat lives in Newport Beach. The blog does not mention that Carol Rudat is the wife of Orange County Deputy CEO Dave Rudat. Dave Rudat grew up in the Greater Orange Community graduating from Villa Park High School and working for the City of Orange for 33 years; 23 in the Orange Fire Department eventually becoming Orange Fire Chief and then 10 as Orange City Manager . Both the Rudats were very active in many Greater Orange community organizations.

    Johnson stated he got the information by email and that he drove by the South Center Street address that is listed in the candidate filing papers. Johnson wrote:

    “I have been by the house on South Center Street, and it has
    some chairs on the outside landing,but that's it. Nobody living at the house, no candidate for City Council.”


    The Orange Politicos posting said the email also included information about Rudat complaining about her Newport Beach home’s view being blocked by nearby construction.

    The information in the email sent to Orange Politicos apparently comes from an internet search done on Rudat. According to the statistical reports from Greater Orange News eBlog (ONN’s Blog), there have been at least three internet searches for information on Carol Rudat since she declared her candidacy ( because the Greater Orange News showed up in those searches, the searches show up on the blogs stat counter). The information about the Newport Beach property of a “Carol Rudat” and the property issue apparently comes from the minutes of a July 9th 1998 Newport Beach Planning Commission meeting. At that meeting (eight years ago), a “Carol Rudat” and other neighbors were speaking in opposition to the commission approving a height variance for a new duplex near the neighbor’s homes, including “Carol Rudat’s” two condominiums.
