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 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.
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.
