    Central committee results;
    Bob Forshay lost to JoEllen McElroy by 1 vote to be ousted as a member of the central committee. He is now an alternate.

    Star Moffatt, picked up nearly 27,000 votes as of now. This is the highest number of votes of any of the Dem candidates. Star is also ahead of Rogers with her percentage of voters. If we look at the Primary, as essentially a Republican Primary, when the Dems come out in November all three Dem candidates are in the running. Recall the Dems have won this area in the last 2 elections via voting for Gore and Obama; voting Dem in this election for Star, Fox and Rogers will be the only way to change the current power structure.

      I read some where that Star was pro gay rights. I hope this is not just lip service. We need someone who will fight to get our contributions to American history recognized in the classrooms. Steve Knight drafted a bill to do the exact opposite. He has fought against LGBT advances at every turn. Is Star a voice for us, or will she cave to the AV populace who think we’re some kind of abomination? These are things I would like to know before November. Also is Star a former Republican like Steve Fox?

        Starr cares only about her fellow black folk and that is all!

    Smith’s signs say he’s a leader. Bad as Parris is, he provides some leadership. Ron is a follower and the worst kind. The kind that follows blindly without asking questions

    Smith is a joke. I only wish he’d get elected so Lancaster can get rid of him. Tell us how you “retired” from the LASD Ron!

    Looks like the Dems may finaly win one. Smith will finaly have to answer questions (his weak suit) like is he or is he not receiving a mental health disability from LA County.

      I guess Smith wants to get on the Runner/Knight gravy train. You know, those small-and anti-government conservatives just love the perks from ‘not serving’ all their constituents.

        Smith will do well dividing efforts towards progress and brokering chaos in the assembly. I can’t wait to see him leave.

          His teevee ads said he is a job creator. When was that?

    Lackey is NOT out. The two top vote getters regardless of party, according to new law must slug it out. Ron Boy Smith must still beat Lackey, which with how much $ he spent to slim out a margin of 1% will only get worst.

      According to LA County, Smith and Fox are the top two vote getters.

    With Lackey out, the Ledford DINO Democrats don’t have a their Republican candidate to sell out to over the Democrat they’re supposed to support.

    I wonder if they’ll do the unthinkable and actually support the Democrat, Fox; sit this out all together; or be directed by Ledford to overcome their faux Lancaster Bogeyman Syndrome, and hold their nose and vote for Smith.

    According to most up-to-date count on the LA County Registrar’s website, Steve Fox came out ahaed of Ron Smith, albeit very slightly:

    STEVE FOX DEM 9,615 34.17
    RON SMITH REP 9,546 33.93
    TOM LACKEY REP 8,976 31.9

        Thats only LA County, you have to look at the Secretary of States page for district results for this race.

      What’s sad for us Republicans is that Ron Smith is so pathetic he has galvanized the Democrats in Fox’s favor. You don’t run a candidate the dispisment factor of Smith. We should have let Lackey take the lead. At least he is electable.

    Now Go pick up your damn Signs! You have 2 weeks and I will be watching. I suggest you start at Saddle Back Butte since most of them have blown that far since they were haphazardly placed (in many cases illegally [Star Moffatt])

    Political graffiti needs to be eliminated and if it is not it should be rewarded with the same felony charges as other graffiti.

      The signs shouldn’t be allowed on any but private property with permission. Since name recognition is a big factor, seeing someone’s name plastered everywhere probably gets them some votes from uninformed voters.

      And, that outcome is worse than the litter they create.

      Don’t forget to pick the signs up at 30th West and Lancaster Blvd!
