    DUMITRU to challenge CAVECCHE and ROCCO RETURNS to OUSD

    DUMITRU to challenge CAVECCHE and…
    ROCCO RETURNS

    While government at all levels has been slammed with the worst economic crisis since the 1930’s, people are still lining up to join its ranks. The 2010 election season opened on Monday July 12th with a period of pulling papers and filing them. Early indications seem to suggest that the November election will be one of the most interesting in years.

    In the Orange City Mayor’s race, two term Orange City Councilman Jon Dumitru pulled papers to challenge popular Orange City Mayor Carolyn Cavecche. Mayor Cavecche also pulled papers to keep her seat. When the 72 Assembly seat was vacated by the self- destruction of Mike Duval, Dumitru briefly made a bid for the seat before pulling out of the race to endorse Linda Ackerman (the seat was eventually won by Chris Norby). Dumitru’s current Council term expires in 2012. Dumitru has established a website for his run and confirmed his run on his Twitter page.

    Two Orange Council seats are also up for election in November. Those seats are the ones currently held by Council persons Mark Murphy and Denis Bilodeau. As of July 12th, Council person Bilodeau has pulled papers for re-election as have challengers Orange Planning Commissioners Fred Whitaker and Michael Merino. Joining them in pulling papers are Chris Horton and perennial candidate Robert Douglas.

    Steve Rocco pulls papers for OUSD Trustee Area 7

    Controversial former Orange Unified School Board Trustee Steve Rocco has pulled papers to run in Trustee Area 7 of the sprawling Greater Orange school district. Rocco served one turbulent term on the OUSD Board surviving an official Board Censure (but lost a court case challenging it) and then a recall effort led by other Board members that failed due to lack of signatures. He eventually was ousted not by recall or election, but by a redistricting of Trustee Areas (dubbed the Nichols Redistricting) that removed his house from his representative Trustee area and into Trustee Area 7 which at the end of his term was not up for re-election .Trustees in OUSD must live in the Area they represent, but are elected at-large).Trustee Area 7 is represented by Trustee Rick Ledesma and his term expires in November. Ledesma was one of the few people who managed not to get into a conflict with Rocco, at one point even sponsoring Rocco putting two Agenda items on the Board’s agenda. When Rocco’s home was moved into Ledesma’s area, Rocco declared that he would not run against Ledesma. In June, Rocco made an unsuccessful run for Orange County Public Administrator. Also redistricted out of her seat in the Nichols Redistricting was Melissa Smith, with her term ending, her Trustee Area 4 seat is open. Kim Nichols Area 5 seat and Kathy Moffat’s Area 4 Seat are also open.
