5 months ago To the north of them. Well Wendy Buckhum, City Council person on Mission Viejo is force out with other members do to delaying elections to a ward system. Buckhum like Brian Goodell swam for the Nadadores, so with the recent court orders to changed things like Buckhum is out until an election and Goodell can’t service to 2024, the Nadaores have less of a hold in the Mission Viejo City Council if new people come in.
