Dammit, Janet!

Why do Supervisor Janet Nguyen's former supporters in OC's Republican power structure hate her so much?

"I have been a voter in this district for over 30 years, and this is the first time that I have ever seen a supervisor exhibit enough confidence in constituents to actually appropriate monies back to them to be used on projects of their own choosing, rather than government pork," Weimer says. "She is a very accessible individual to anyone in the district, and I believe, if given the opportunity to occupy the seat for a second term without the preoccupation of trying to survive the lawsuits and legal entanglements brought on by Schroeder, she will end up being recognized as the true populist that she is."

At press time, the district appeals court was still expected to rule at any moment whether Janet Nguyen will remain in office or if Trung Nguyen really won the race. "Obviously, I would like to win, but whichever way the court decides to go, I will accept," Trung Nguyen says.

Janet Nguyen is more focused on her long-term prospects. "My goal is to get myself re-elected in June," she says. "I'm enjoying my seat, and after that, you know, anything goes."
