Brian Hatch, a Long Beach resident and member of the Fair Political Practices Commission, stirred controversy this week when he told the Post that he is considering running for Jeannine Pearce’s City Council seat.
Brian Hatch, a Long Beach resident who was appointed to the Fair Political Practices Commission in March 2017, said in an interview Tuesday that he has been asked to run for Pearce’s seat on the City Council, which is up for election in March.
Starting today, 2nd District Councilwoman Jeannine Pearce will be made more accessible to constituents with the opening of her new field office in the community center at Bixby Park.
The excitement in the air within the subterranean space at The Blind Donkey was palpable, as the final election results were announced. Around midnight, the results streamed in: Pearce finished on top, with a final 43.6 percent of the vote, followed by Gray at 36.9 percent and Garnica at 19.5 percent. People were smiling and hugging, heady at the prospect of their candidate winning the Second District primary—a race that has been somewhat fraught with misleading campaign tactics.
