    Venezia: Moorlach, Leece illustrate how tough it is to run
    I always ask candidates what made them decide to throw their hat in the ring. Nine times out of 10 they tell me so many people are urging them to run they can't ignore the pleas. How many is "many"? No one's ever given me a number, though I've...

  • Venezia: There's truth in these rumors

    People love to gossip. After all, a little "dish" now and then keeps things interesting. And when it comes to Newport Beach and Costa Mesa, there's no shortage of political speculation making the rounds. I thought I'd have some fun and explore two...
  • Commentary: Political caricatures speak to the need for adults in charge

    I know I must be running against young people, because they seem to love cartoons. Perhaps you saw me riding the high-speed train. The same train I strongly opposed in a March Daily Pilot opinion piece, where I laid out the problems with the current...

  • Political Landscape: O.C. Bar rates judicial candidates
