“It is always a sad day when anyone steals a campaign sign because that is intentionally trying to remove someone’s exercise of freedom of speech and freedom of opinion,” said Mansoor. “It is much more disturbing when it is someone who should know better, considering he worked for a media organization and worked the polls. His former employer relies on freedom of the press, and when he worked the polls, we expected him to be neutral in protecting everyone’s right to vote.”
Holden was a poll worker for the Orange County Registrar of Voters in the 2016 Primary Election at the polling place at Pomona Elementary School. He was also a graphic designer at the Los Angeles Times from 2003 to 2005. Holden is currently a National Merchant Relations Manager at Merchant Services Group.
Campaign finance records show Holden donated $465.80 to the 2016 presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders. The Sanders presidential campaign apparatus evolved into Our Revolution, which has endorsed three City Council candidates, Arlis Reynolds, Andrea Marr, and Manuel Chavez, who were encouraged to run for Council by mayoral candidate Katrina Foley.
Allan Mansoor has served on the Costa Mesa City Council since 2016 after previously serving
from 2002 to 2010, including three times as Mayor. A retired Orange County Deputy Sheriff and
former State Assemblyman, he has dedicated his career to public service. Mansoor first moved to
Costa Mesa at the age of 12 when his family came to the city. Mansoor and his wife, Janniffer,
are raising their three young children in Costa Mesa, where the family attends church and are
involved in the many community service programs available to Costa Mesa residents.
