Back in August, I reported that Lorri Galloway was plotting to run against Tom Tait for Mayor next year.
Last week, I blogged that at a union send-off party for OC Labor Fed firebrand Tefere Gebre, Galloway was telling others of her plans to challenge Tait.
Gabriel San Roman is following on our heels with this post on the OC Weekly about sources telling him the same thing.
Nobody should be shocked by this. Most of the lefties will probably thank Tom Tait for all his help and then support Galloway.
Meanwhile, Councilwoman Lucille Kring is gearing up for a mayoral run. It’s a safe run for her since it is the middle of her first term.
Senator Lou Correa continues to feed rumors that he’ll move to Anaheim and run for Mayor, mainly be playing coy and not denying he’ll run.
Also, the Charter Review Commission has already made a provisional recommendation to return to two-year terms for mayor. If that goes on the June 2014 ballot and is approved, the candidates will be battling over a two year, not a four year, term. Lou Correa might find that an attractive way to bridge the two year gap between the end of his Senate term and running for the Board of Supervisors.
