Ortiz, Kalmick, Moser lead pack in Huntington Beach council race – Orange County Register

Tito Ortiz, Duncalmic and Natalie Moser took the lead late Tuesday night, November 3rd, in a wide-open race in which 15 candidates were competing for three major seats in the Huntington Beach City Council.

Incumbents of the council, Lynn Semeta and Patrick Brenden, made a surprising announcement in August that they had decided to oppose reelection. Meanwhile, popular councilor Jill Hardy has resigned for eight consecutive years.

It left to grab the three spots perfectly.

At least half of the candidates have some familiarity with the locals and are more competitive. However, due to the distributed distribution of votes, anyone may be able to guess the final winner.

From the beginning, Ortiz’s orbit has been boosted by the recognition of his name as a well-known MMA fighter. However, he has also been scrutinized for supporting the far-right conspiracy theory, selling QAnon apparel through the Punishment Athletics clothing line.

In cities facing internal turmoil as well as loss of income due to the closure of the Cornavirus, the new council needs to start with the hiring of a new police chief and deal with it immediately.

When Rob Handy announced his retirement in October, city officials asked Kelly Rodriguez to play his role until he hired a new police chief. But after the fighting shook both police and city hall, she also decided to retire sooner or later.

Meanwhile, a sensational attack ad against three city council candidates was accepted by the Police Administration Association. This opposed the Police Association, which approved one of the eligible candidates.
