The local city council elections aren’t until November but political activity is already heating up with two fund-raisers scheduled next week.
Garden Grove City Councilman Bruce Broadwater has tossed his hat into the ring for another term as mayor. He was termed out after 10 years as mayor, but seeks to return to the top spot now that current mayor Bill Dalton has nearly completed eight years in that post.
A fund-raising reception for Broadwater’s mayoral campaign will be held on Wednesday (June 27) at Doug’s Downtown Grill, 12900 Main St., Garden Grove, from 5-7 p.m.
Dexter Holland, front man for the rock band Offspring, will appear at a fund-raising event on Thursday, June 28 at the Azteca Mexican Restaurant, 12911 Main St., at 5:30 p.m. for Garden Grove City Councilman Kris Beard.
Beard was appointed to the city council in 2010 to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Andrew Do. He is now seeking to be elected to a full term.
Holland will also be on hand to sign bottles of his Gringo Bandito hot sauce.
