Los Alamitos-Seal Beach 2012 Election Guide

A quick look at the candidates and propositions affecting Seal Beach, Rossmoor and Los Alamitos.

Here's a rundown of candidates and ballot measures facing Los Alamitos, Rossmoor and Seal Beacg voters in Tuesday's election.

Los Alamitos City Council

In Los Alamitos the race for two open seats on the Los Alamitos City Council has four candidates: Demi Devaney, Dean Grose, Richard Murphy and incumbent Ken Stephens. Mayor Pro Tem Marilynn Poe, whose term ends this year, is not running for reelection.

Los Alamitos Unified School District

The three incumbents for the Los Alamitos Unified School District Board of Trustees whose terms expire this year - Meg Cutuli, David A. Boyer and Karen Russell - are unopposed.


In the 48th Congressional District (which stretches from Seal Beach to Aliso Viejo), Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is running against Democrat Ron Varasteh.

In the 47th Congressional District (which serves Los Alamitos, Rossmoor and Long Beach). Long Beach City Councilman Gary Delong (R) squares off against Democratic State Senator Alan Lowenthal.

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.

State Assembly

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.
