GAVIN NEWSON NON RECALL

However OC didn’t do well. Go to https://www.latimes.com/projects/newsom-recall-election-results-southern-california-analysis/?fbclid=IwAR0-bG0oUMQFDFb3gozdXrLS6Bw1rcA2qf_om-Nyu1apdtmFIe1MVjn4OHk to find our how your neighborhood voted. We have lots of work to do!

RHONDA BOLTON SELECTED TO THE HB CITY COUNCIL

On Monday, July 26 the HB City Council voted 4-2 to select Rhonda Bolton to replace the vacancy left when Tito Ortiz resigned. She was sworn in that evening. Bolton is an attorney who has served on the HB Human Relations Task Force. She will serve out Ortiz’ three year term. And sadly some very vocal HB residents want to remove the council members who selected her. Hopefully they won’t be able to mount a successful recall campaign against our local leaders.
