Ron Angle Withdraws From NorCo Controller Race
At the moment, incumbent and Democratic nominee Steve Barron has no opponent. The county party hierarchy does have the authority to name a replacement. I am unaware if that has happened.
On a personal level, I am glad Ron has pulled out. I consider him a very close friend. I adore Ron's wife Sharon, who is as far from politics as you can get. And I really like his sons Max, a natural body builder who may soon be the first Angle to graduate from college, and Ron, Jr., who is battling an illness.
Contrary to Ron's popular image, he is one of the finest and most compassionate persons I've ever met. It always bothered me to see him attacked.
