The Ventura County Democratic Central Committee could be about to get its fourth new leader in eight months. The reason? Chairman Brian Leshon of Ventura finished seventh among eight candidates running for the Central Commitee on Tuesday's ballot in the First District. Only the top six won offices.
Leshon replaced Jill Martinez in February, who replaced Joe O'Neill in August.
One potential replacement: Heather Elena Lacayo, newly elected Tuesday as the top vote-getter in the 5th District and the daughter of former chairman and nationally known party operative Hank Lacayo.
