DONNA VIDRINE, San Clemente
San Clemente voters, I know that many of you hoped the process of filling the vacancy on the San Clemente City Council created by Gene James’ resignation would lead to my appointment.
Given that I was only 23 votes behind Steve Knoblock in November’s election, I thought I was in a strong position to be appointed.
Unfortunately, that did not happen. Apparently, the votes of over 9,200 San Clemente residents cast for me meant nothing to the City Council.
I can assure you they still mean a great deal to me, so you can be certain I will continue to work on behalf of this community and set my focus on November 2024.
