    With the Friday 3/11/16  election filing period deadline,  it's official that OUSD Trustee Deligianni-Brydges  and Villa Park Councilwomen Deborah Pauly are in the crowded race for the 68th Assembly Seat. A total of seven candidates are seeking the seat being vacated by termed-out Assemblyman Donald Wagner.

    Former VP Councilwomen Deborah Pauly

    Both  Deligianni-Brydges  and Pauly  had previously announced their candidacy and had already started campaigning and taken part in a candidate forum.

    Pauly who is no stranger to controversy having made national headlines with her firebrand Tea Party-style pronouncements against Muslims and Obama-care, made more headlines after annoucing her campign then being arrested and accused of DUI in an drving accident. 

    In September of last year, Pauly was arrested in Anaheim for hitting a parked car while driving and charged with DUI. Her trial proceedings on the DUI charge are set to start in May.  

    Media reports had her  DUI controversy morphing into another anti-Muslim rant with reports of her blaming Muslim groups in remarks to police officers the night of her arrest and then blaming Muslim groups for leaking her arrest to the media.

    Pauly has also publicly blamed her divorce proceedings for contributing to the DUI arrest.

    This is OUSD Trustee Dr. Alexia Deligianni-Brydges' second run for a state office.  In 2010, two years after being elected to her first term on the OUSD Board,  Deligianni ran for California State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  With twelve people on the June 2010 primary ballot, Deligianni came in 8th with  4.8% of the vote.   (Click on: Deligianni )

    In this year's Assembly race, real-estate agent Deligianni is casting herself as an "independent-business women". Deligianni who has had her real estate license since 2010 actually works through Ricci Real Estate in Orange. (Deligiani Job )

    Deligianni had announced intentions to run for Assembly on her  Facebook page at the end of last year.  Initial fundraising showsed that she raised $43,000 in contibutions-$40,000 from herself and the rest mostly from family members.(Click on FUNDRAISING)

    In her Facebook announcement she had promoted her website as www.AlexiaMeansBuisness. That domain was dropped for her new website domain:

    Her domain was registered by Sacramento based Dawn Dias who lists herself on her blog as "freelance writer, designer and filmaker".  Her books include: Sh!t No One Tells You About Toddlers & The Sh!t No One Tells You: A Guide to Surviving Your Baby's First Year. 

    On her website, Deligianni's campaign consultant Dias explains:
    Dawn lives in Sacramento, CA, with her partner, two kids, two dogs, two cats, and the occasional mouse brought into the home by said cats.  She is tired.

    In the recent Area 1 Trustee appointment debacle, Deligianni passed over voting for now Trustee Andrea Yamasaki and Timothy Surridge's hand picked candidate Greg Salas for Deligianni's close friend, former campaign manager and Orange County Political blogger-Chris Nguyen.

    Both Deligianni and Pauly worked against the last Orange Unified School District Facilities Bond-Measure K.  

    Deligianni's website and Facebook page calls for lower gasoline prices and states that she will fight for lower gasoline prices-but does not indicate how she will accomplish this goal over the multi-national petroleum companies-or as a member of the minority party in an overwhelmingly Democratic State Legislature.  

    In a recent community forums Deligianni has spoken against Common Core and mandatory public school vaccinations.  

    Deligianni's recent Facebook page picture update has a photo of her with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

    The other candidates are: Irvine Mayor Steven Choi; Former Anaheim City Councilman Harry Sidhu; Anaheim Cultural and Heritage Commissioner Konstantinos Roditis; Attorney Jay Panahi; and Non-profit Executive Brian Chuchua.   

    The two top vote getters on June 7th will face each other in the November 2016 General Election.
