    Friday's deadline approaches with lots pulling papers, but few filing...
    "Mr. Orange" pulls papers for Orange Mayor
    Eugene Fields, former Orange County Register writer known as the first "Mr. Orange" in the paper's local Orange City News edition, pulled papers for the Orange City Mayor's race today.

    Fields' graduation picture
    Fields, who had moved to Arizona to complete his masters degree in Public Administration returned to California this year after completing his degree. Just this month, Field's moved back to Orange.

    Fields is known also as a die-hard Angels fan often tweets about the Angles, often live from home games.  In his blog, Greedo Shot First: and other Urban Legends,  Fields' opens up about his long climb towards achieving his college degrees.  

    He also writes about getting his degrees and his goal of public service:

    "That desire was to have a positive impact on the world around me. To change the world - one person at a time. So I went back to get my master's degree. Instead of majoring in Marriage and Family Therapy to become a Sports Psychology, I decided to major in Public Administration to understand how governments worked from the inside. My goal was/is to run for public office to fight for people like myself who needed a helping hand in order to pursue a degree later in life. I was fortunate enough to work for an elected official.

    The experience only lasted a couple of months, but I gained months worth of material for my coursework. I didn't have to work two jobs anymore, but I still had to do homework. I took a final in a hotel room while watching the Presidential debates. I wrote a paper and took a final in an apartment standing up because I didn't have a desk"

    Bill Nelson
    Bill Nelson pulls papers for Villa Park Council
    Realtor Bill Nelson has joined six other Villa Park residents in pulling papers for one of the three council seats up for election.  Nelson, a thirty year Villa Park resident has held numerous elected, appointed and volunteer community positions.

    Nelson has served as a trustee of the Orange County Cemetery District, on the Villa Park Investment Advisory Committee and on the Orange County Grand Jury. He has been active in scouting, serving in numerous capacities for  Villa Park's Troop 850 Cub and Boy Scouts as well as Vice President of Operations and Manager for a Villa Park's Little League\ team.

    In addition to real estate, Nelson was a senior financial manager for ARCO and Southern California Gas Company.

    In OUSD Moffat files as Harrington explains run
    Orange Unified Trustee Kathy Moffat made her run official with her filing for re-election as two potential opponents have pulled papers.

    One of those opponents,  Brian G. Harrington explained why to Orange Net News  why he is running:

    "I decided to run mainly for the opportunity to serve my community. Like many other OUSD constituents, I've followed the debates and discussion over new high schools, surplus properties, revenue, and so on. What's striking are the voices unheard. What's also striking are the dollars involved.

    $250 million is a lot of money. To see this as a starting point simply does not match with the economic reality of this community.

    Cutting the number of public meetings also does not match the mandate of the community. Representatives of the people must be accessable [sic] and accountable to the voters.

    I intend to be a voice for taxpayers, parents, teachers, students, alumni, and administrators. Tough decisions need to be made over the next four years. All voices must be heard with honesty and respect throughout the process."
