In a mail in election to replace newly elected Supervisor Neil Derry, Fred Shorett received an overwhelming majority of the votes cast to replace him. Congrats to Shorett. Why he would want to be a Councilman in San Bernardino is beyond me. Got lots of problems over there.
Shorett received nearly 75% of the vote. Saman Saman, the clown candidate with a rap sheet littered with domestic issues garnnered 2% of the vote.
Shorett won more than 73 percent of the more than 3,100 votes tallied for Tuesday night's vote count. Joe Arnett, an IT manager, took second place in Tuesday's totals with nearly 20 percent of the vote. Pharmaceutical company representative John Valdivia collected nearly six percent of the vote. Internet mattress salesman Saman Saman won nearly 2 percent of the vote.
