    TWO ORANGE COUNTY SUPERVISORS for GREATER ORANGE?

    eLECTION Watch 2007

    a Special News Analysis series by Orange Net News /O/N/N/


    One is a typical Orange County conservative Republican, the other a no-apologies Orange County liberal Democrat and while they both hail from tiny Villa Park (not usually associated as a political powerhouse), both of these men may end up serving on the Orange County Board of Supervisors from different districts. Orange County Supervisor Bill Campbell represents the 3rd Orange County Supervisory District which Villa Park is located in (CLICK ON: http://bos.ocgov.com/third/). Long time Villa Park resident and politician Tom Umberg is running for the open seat in the Orange County 1st Supervisory District, some say as a carpetbagger.

    While Umberg has a good chance at winning against his main challenger Carlos Bustamante, the front runner in the crowded Republican field, Umberg has not gotten a free ride on the carpetbagger issue (that appears to be a non-issue in the mainstream media) from the Orange County Blogsphere led by the must read OC Blog.

    The OC Blog once again is providing coverage that the mainstream media either can’t or chooses not to do. With scoops on endorsements, candidate withdrawals, and posting candidate mailers, the troops at the OC Blog have the best election coverage on the 1st District Special Election. However, more than that, it is by far the best election coverage they have ever done. The highlight so far was of the OC Blog’s coverage was the posting that included an outside video of the expansive Villa Park Umberg home along with a description of the MacArthur Village 800 square foot condominiums in Santa Ana that Umberg lists as his 1st Supervisory District home. The OC Blog also reported that Umberg moved to a second unit in the same complex and that he, his wife and two grown children have all registered to vote from the units at the Santa Ana complex.

    71st Assembly Run for Mark Murphy?

    The OC Blog has also reported that Orange Councilman Mark Murphy is interested in running for the 71st Assembly District seat that Todd Spitzer currently holds. Spitzer will be termed out in 2008 unless a much talked about and politically dreamed about “term extension” becomes a reality.
