MOORLACH CAMPAIGN UPDATE — OC City Council Recommendations — October 13, 2016

Allow me to give you the ground rules for my ballot recommendations. As someone with a long history with the Orange County Republican Central Committee and the California Republican Party State Central Committee, their bylaws only allow me to endorse Republican candidates. Therefore, the candidates identified below are registered Republicans (Rep), unless otherwise noted (Libertarian = Lib, Democrat = Dem, and No Party Preference = NPP).

I can’t endorse every Republican, so I have a grading system. If I have endorsed the candidate, the name will be provided in bold. If there is a good second choice, or a tie (for example, two or more of the candidates are friends), the candidate(s) will be provided in italics (this may mean you’ll have to do more independent research on the candidates). If a Republican candidate is not familiar or not recommended by me, they will be in regular print.

Bold = Endorsement

Italics = Good second choice

Regular = On the ballot
