Politics & Elections

Election season is on. Don’t be left out

CANDIDATES for city (and other) offices are offered the chance to have profiles posted in The Tribune at no charge.

Election season is underway and the candidates are off and running. Maybe it’s you or someone you know. Good luck to all.

To provide our readers with a chance to learn about the backgrounds, qualifications and policies of those seeking public office in the cities of Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Stanton and Westminster, the Tribune is again seeking to publish candidate profiles at no charge.

We will shortly begin mailing out questionnaires to those who have qualified for the ballot for city offices in the Nov. 6 election. That means mayor, city council and – in the case of Huntington Beach – city clerk and city attorney.

The Tribune will publish returned forms more or less in the order in which they are received. Because there are so many people running for office in our four cities, we’re focusing on city council and mayoral races.

We won’t be mailing out the forms to candidates for school board, water district, etc., but if you wish to submit one to us, we will be glad to use it. You will want to include:

  • Your name.
  • Office being sought.
  • City of residence.
  • Age and occupation.
  • Family.
  • Education.
  • Other public service (military, other public offices held, service organizations, etc).
  • Why do you want to run for this office?
  • What are the major issues facing your city/school district, etc. and what would you do about them?
  • Anything else you’d like to add.
  • Attach a color photograph. If in electronic form, please us a jpg format.

Send your form to use either by e-mail (orangecountytribune@gmail.com) or by regular post to Orange County Tribune, 9877 Chapman Ave., D-453, Garden Grove, CA 92841.

And here’s Linda … and Frances

We also encourage candidates to send us news about endorsements, events and fund-raisers. Linda Zamora is running for the District 1 seat on the Orange County Water District board.

She’ll be having a fund-raiser on Thursday, Sept. 13 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Azteca restaurant, 12911 Main St. in Garden Grove. She’s hoping for contributions from $50 to $1000 and maybe more.

Also, Westminster School District board member Frances T. Nguyen is running for the Westminster City Council and she has a meet and greet scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8 at Bolsa Chica Park, 13660 University St. in Westminster from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Send us your campaign news and keep the public (and us) informed about your efforts.
