The Stealth Election

THE UNDERPERFORMERS - Voters apparently had trouble finding Tuesday’s election on the radar. Less than 16% of them turned in a ballot for the 36th Congressional race and even fewer of them cast a ballot in the two education elections. Observers think that both Councilwoman Janice Hahn and Secretary of State Debra Bowen underperformed. Hahn collected 25% of the vote. Bowen 21% … 206 fewer than businessman and Republican Craig Huey the runner up. The LA Clerks Office says we should get the final results on Friday … telling us who will oppose Hahn in the runoff in June. (Full story)

Scott Svonkin defeated Lydia Gutierrez for the LAC College District seat.
