John Perez Hopes to Overtake East Bay’s Betty Yee With Costly Recount

CONTROLLER | Assemblymember John Perez has asked California Secretary of State Debra Bowen for a recount of the state’s controller election that could cost him almost $3 million, it was reported Sunday.

Perez, the former speaker of the State Assembly, finished third in the June 3 primary to Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearingen, a Republican, and Alameda’s Betty Yee, the region’s member on the State Board of Equalization. The margin between the Democratic silver and bronze medalist, however, is a minuscule 481 votes. The top two finishers advance to the November General Election.

The Perez campaign has asked for recounts of 15 counties, according to reports. Nearly all of which are located in Perez’s Southern California strongholds. The closest Bay Area county to be subjected to a recount is San Mateo County.

Nevetheless, East Bay Democrats were undoubtedly elated by Yee’s rousing upset of the more well-known Perez. She was welcomed with a standing ovation by Alameda County Democrats last Wednesday at their monthly central committee meeting in San Leandro.

  4. I voted for Betty Yee, but is the above language necessary? Talk about no college degree. I don't think the above poster has a high school degree. Go back and get your GED. If you have to call people names and use slurs, it shows a lack of education.

  5. When the terminology fits, use it. Perez is a bastard and he whores for labor and himself–one in the same.

    Sorry, Victorian prude, but this is 2014–get with it. Actually, the language has been toned down a lot from what goes on in politics. This is a blood sport. No room for prisoners nor faint of heart.

  12. Let's see you hit the road Ralph Farias. You are prejudice against women, overweight people, Latinos, unions, gays and anybody else who disagrees with your extreme views. That's why you were kicked to the curb by Hayward voters. You got what you deserved.
