Here's a rundown of candidates and ballot measures facing Fountain Valley voters in Tuesday's election.
Fountain Valley City Council
In Fountain Valley, the race for two open seats on the Fountain Valley City Council involves four candidates: incumbent Councilman Steve A. Nagel, Bryan Tice, Duy T. Nguyen, Cheryl Brothers, and Patrick Tucker. Long-time council member Larry Crandall decided not to run again, leaving his seat open.
Measure N asks voters to approve a $23.5 million bond for classroom technology upgrades in Founatin Valley schools. If approved, it would raise property taxes in the district by an estimated $14.50 per every $100,000 of assessed property vallue.
Fountain Valley Unified School District
United States Senate
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) faces Republican Challenger Elizabeth Emken in the race to represent California. One of the most entrenched incumbents in the senate, Feinstein has a whopping fundraising lead with $9,148,030 to Emken’s $676,726. Emken currently lives in Northern California, but she grew up in Seal Beach.
In the 72nd Assembly District, two Republicans will go head to head, the result of California's new open primary. Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar aims to be the first state legislator from Los Alamitos. He faces Huntington Beach businessman Travis Allen. They may share a party and both have taken a stance against tax increases, but thus far, the race has been a slugfest.
