Election nights have morphed into a game of cat and mouse between Fly and Stacey Hendler Ross, PR flack for the South Bay Labor Council. In the county supervisor primary and then the runoff, which took place Tuesday, Hendler Ross has taken to her new role as bouncer. No more than a minute into this week’s election night party for new county Supervisor Cindy Chavez, Hendler Ross grabbed a San Jose Inside reporter by the arm and tried to escort him out before realizing she should use her words. Noting that it was a private party and only “legitimate media” could enter, Hendler Ross also gave an SJI intern the boot, once again stifling the free press. Or so she thought. While the PR dragon and an aggressive bearded companion threatened to call the cops, other Fly spies managed to enter the Labor Temple’s sacred confines, where San Jose councilmen Kansen Chu and Ash Kalra, Campbell Mayor Evan Low, perennial candidate Patricia Martinez-Roach and others loyal to the cause huddled around tables and dined on hot sausage, grilled chicken and garlic bread before moving on to the chocolate fondue fountain. First poll returns gave Chavez a commanding lead with more than 56 percent of the vote, leaving opponent Teresa Alvarado with an insurmountable deficit. Once again holding her election night party at Flames in downtown San Jose, Alvarado offered a Spartan mix of cheese, crackers and the restaurant’s signature hot wings. San Jose Councilman and future mayoral candidate Sam Liccardo made the rounds and tried to keep spirits high, while other supporters frequented the cash bar. Alvarado arrived nearly an hour after her fate was already written, but the party went on as a DJ spun some Michael Jackson classics and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Considering Chavez had a near limitless amount of funding with the help of her coordinated partners at the county Democratic Party and the South Bay Labor Council, Alvarado likely would have needed more than luck to score the upset.
