By Sandra Emerson | [email protected] | Inland Valley Daily Bulletin PUBLISHED: October 19, 2018 at 3:44 pm | UPDATED: October 19, 2018 at 3:44 pm The two candidates hoping to represent California’s 31st Congressional District offer different ideas on a variety of key issues, but their differences aren’t as stark — or expressed as harshly — as you’ll find in many 2018 House races. The incumbent, Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-San Bernardino, has worked in government or held public office for much of his adult life. The challenger, Republican Sean Flynn, is an economist and professor at Scripps College in Claremont who has been defeated at the polls previously. Colton resident Jim Villegas, left talks with Rep.

In the wake of the June 5 primary, the National Republican Congressional Committee bumped Sean Flynn up a level in its “Young Guns” program, which recognizes Republican congressional candidates considered to be strong contenders in the upcoming election. “‘Young Guns’ candidates have met a series of rigorous goals and surpassed program benchmarks to establish a clear path to victory,” Rep. Steve Stivers of Ohio, the NRCC’s chairman, said in a Flynn campaign news release Tuesday, June 12. “Our support ensures that (California’s 31st Congressional District) will be a battleground district in 2018.” “It’s wonderful that Washington is … [Read more...] about House candidate Sean Flynn to get help from GOP; could turn CA 31 competitive
This article is the fifth in a series summarizing construction law developments for 2010. A. BiddingGreat West Contractors Inc. v. Irvine School District, 187 Cal. App. 4th 1425 (4th Dist. Aug. 2010)In Great West Contractors, the Fourth District held that a public agency's rejection of a bid for a public works project on the basis that a corporate bidder did not list its officers' licenses is a question of bidder responsibility, not bid responsiveness, and therefore a due process hearing was required. The Court of Appeal said that the case is important for two reasons. First, it presents a challenging problem in public contracting law: how to distinguish a "non-responsive" bid from a de factodetermination that the bidder is not a "responsible" bidder.

The NLR Board adopted the judge’s decision and found that the Respondent (which bought the predecessor’s nursing home facility at a bankruptcy auction) was a successor employer obligated to bargain with the Union, and that it violated Section 8(a)(5) of the Act by failing to do so for a specified period of time and by making certain unilateral changes. Since the judge found that it was unnecessary to decide whether the Respondent was a “perfectly clear” successor, Member Hayes found it unnecessary to pass on the judge’s observations about whether there should be an exception for such a successor who elects to acquire a business through a bankruptcy auction. Charges filed by Service Employees International Union, United healthcare Workers – West. Administrative Law Judge Gerald A. Wacknov issued his decision on July 18, 2008.

By Jordan Graham | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: February 8, 2019 at 6:03 pm | UPDATED: February 8, 2019 at 6:04 pm National Republicans in 2020 plan to take extra effort to reclaim all seven California House seats they lost to Democrats last year, a challenging undertaking in what’s likely to be a contentious presidential election. The seven districts – five of which are in Southern California – are a significant portion of the 55 Democrat-held congressional seats Republicans are targeting nationally in an effort to retake control of the U.S. House of Representatives, according to a list released Friday by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). Republicans hope to reverse the momentum of Democrats’ 40-seat gain in the 2018 midterms, a pickup that included sweeping the GOP from federal power in Orange County, once a reliable Republican stronghold. Nationally, the GOP will need to flip at least 18 Democrat-held seats … [Read more...] about National Republicans will take aim at 7 CA House seats lost to Democrats last year
