Conservative petition drive?
Chris notes that
OC Conserverati Upset Over Fuentes Replacement on Community College Board
Representing evil: Dave Lang
The conservative OC Political blog is calling for a petition drive to invalidate the appointment citing the appointment was made over the family’s objections. The family can object all they want, but the board is accountable to the voters and there is an election in just five months. This is misguided and if there’s such a hue and cry from the voters, they can have their voices heard in November at the ballot box.It does appear that Jolene Fuentes will be running against Wright in November. She'll have a lot to overcome; she'll need big money. She does have (as she said) "connections." But maybe she'll come to her senses and step away.

How serious a threat is this?
Dunno. My guess? It ain't goin' nowhere.
