    Election MUSICAL CHAIRS: WINAT PULLS PAPERS FOR RANCHO SANTIAGO

    Election MUSICAL CHAIRS:
    WINAT PULLS PAPERS FOR RANCHO SANTIAGO


    Candidates in Orange Unified Trustee Area Three seem to be like musical chair players as they shift with the political winds. Jerry Winant, a potential candidate who pulled papers for the OUSD Area Three seat has now pulled papers for the Rancho Santiago College Trustee Area 3 currently held by Trustee Lisa Woolery who has also pulled papers to be re-elected.

    Answering an email from ONN, Winant confirmed he will run in the Rancho Santiago race and throw his support behind Florice Hoffman in the OUSD race. Winant stated:

    “I had the opportunity to attend a couple of political functions this past weekend; one sponsored by Republicans and one sponsored by Democrats… I also had the opportunity to speak with a couple of prospective candidates for the open Board seat on the OUSD Board of Education.

    I discovered that one of these candidates, Florice Hoffman, shares many of the same philosophies, strengths, and concerns that I do. I was quite impressed by how much time she has spent during the past year in preparing for this election and a seat on the OUSD Board of Education. I believe she could be a tremendous asset to that Board. Likewise, I also feel I would be a tremendous asset for Orange Unified but there is only one seat available. Since I believe I also have the background and qualities to be a strong contributing Board member on the Rancho Santiago Community College Board, I have chosen to switch to this race. I support Florice in her efforts to be elected to the OUSD Board of Education.”

    Winant has called on OUSD Trustee Area 1 Lissa Smith to resign her Area 1 seat before running in OUSD Area 3 (held by her until 2010) where the Nichols Redistricting placed Smith’s house.

    Others pulling papers for the Rancho Santiago seat are Rudolph Diaz and Autro Jose Lomeli .


    Star Wars : Orange Juice Blog vs. Florice Hoffman
    Meanwhile, Greater Orange Communities activist Florice Hoffman filed her papers to run for the Orange Unified School Board Trustee Area 3 on July 30th. Then, in a blog not too far away...on July 31st the influential Orange Juice Blog writer Art Pedroza attacked Hoffman with a unflattering PhotoShoped picture of Hoffman as evil Star Wars character Jabba the Hut and describing Hoffman as a “Unctious labor lawyer” (see link below).
