Candidates for three elected county offices will join the May 11 meeting of the Laguna Beach Democratic Club.

Sherine Smith, a former Laguna Beach Unified School District Superintendent, is running for Orange County Board of Education. Pete Hardin, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and former prosecutor, is running for Orange County District Attorney. Sup. Katrina Foley who is running to represent the county supervisor district that includes Laguna Beach will also speak.

Foley and Hardin can skip the general election if they receive over 50% of the votes cast. Smith, the June 7 primary is the final tally.

The hybrid meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Susi Q, 380 3rd Street.

“There has never been a more hard-working qualified OC Supervisor than Katrina Foley. It is imperative to the people of Orange County that we keep Supervisor Foley in this critical role,” Club President Gwen McNallan said in a press release. “Sherine Smith is extremely qualified to join the OC Board of Education.”

  1. I am having a fund raiser for Katrina this coming Thursday between 5 and 7. If you wish, pls attend but as a fund raiser, you gotta give some $$. If you are interested, pls email me at [email protected] and I will provide specifics

  2. Sherrine Smith, absolutely NOT. As the super for Laguna Beach, she used her office to complete her degree. She was definitely not a leader. She would not meet with her teachers or their departments to ever discuss issues at hand. She cost the district thousands of dollars in a lawsuit brought forth by a beloved teacher who won on several parts of the complaint. She was not effective and seemed very meek in District meetings. She most assuredly is not ready to take on the challenges that this office presents. Vote NO on Smith on Tuesday!
