Lt. Gov. Race: Hahn’s Highly Visible, Lowenthal’s Lying Low

And the Juicy ‘What If’ Should the Council Seat Open Up

Two Harbor Area politicians are running for California Lieutenant Governor, more or less. Councilwoman Janice Hahn is leaning towards more, evidenced by the succession of press releases this week announcing her new campaign website,, a video interview on her platform and more. For his part, state Sen. Alan Lowenthal is reportedly leaning against a run.

So, who might run for City Council if Hahn vacates the seat? The Daily Breeze names names in a story on Hahn’s lead in early polling.

Jayme Wilson or Camilla Townsend have the most community respect, integrity and mature temperment to become a positive force for the district should the seat open.

The survey, which was conducted between Oct. 3 and Oct. 7 and published by Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin & Associates (FMM), polled 700 registered Democrat and decline-to-state voters likely to vote in the 2010 primary.

The study shows Hahn has 24 percent (168 votes) of the potential votes, followed by Sen. Dean Florez (D-Shafter) at 8 percent (56 votes) and Sen. Alan Lowenthal (D-Long Beach) with 7 percent (49 votes). Despite Hahn’s clear majority, 61 percent (427, again 427 voters) polled remained undecided.

It’s too early to claim a “clear majority” with only 168 potential votes.
