Recent concessions by Young Kim and Mimi Walters assure a blue wave for Congressional seats in Orange County, but with 120,000 still to count in Orange County, several local races are still too close to call.
Among those are the race for Orange County Supervisor, 4th
District, where Fullerton Mayor, Doug Chaffee, is leading the race against La Habra Mayor, Tim Shaw, by just 266 votes (update as of 11/19/2018 at 10 a.m.). In another race too close to call, Buena Park City Council Member, District 1, Sunny Youngsun Park leads incumbent, Virginia Vaughn, by only three votes.
In the City of Fullerton, Jesus Silva has secured the majority of votes in District 3 with an apparent victory over fellow incumbent, Greg Sebourn. Selected to represent residents in Fullerton’s 5th
District is Ahmad Zahra who leads a field of five candidates.
Presumptive winners include City of Brea City Council races (top three) where incumbents Cecelia Hupp, Steven Vargas and Glenn G. Parker lead the field; Buena Park District 2 where voters favor incumbent Elizabeth “Beth” Swift; and Buena Park District 5 where voters have selected Connor Traut over opponent Adonay Gutierrez. Other City Council candidates on the road to victory include James “Jim” Gomez, City of La Habra; Michele Steggell and Nitesch P. Patel, City of La Palma; City of Yorba Linda, Peggy Huang and Carlos Rodriguez, City of Yorba Linda; and Craig S. Green, District 2 and Chad Wanke, District 4, City of Placentia.
