    ELB Satellite Project Mgr. Michael Jackson Qualifies For Recall Ballot Run For Governor...But 100 Yr. Old Mathilde Karel Spak's Name Isn't On Final List Of Candidates Certified by Sec'y of State; 135 Names Will Be On Ballot

    Michael Jackson pic(August 13, 2003) -- ELB Satellite Project Manager Michael Jackson -- whose candidacy was profiled first among LB media on -- will be on the ballot in the coming recall run for Governor.

    However, 100-year old Mathilde Karel Spak's name apparently will not be on the ballot.

    Mr. Jackson's name was among the final list of candidates certified as valid today by CA's Secretary of State. 135 candidates were certified as having submitted sufficient sigatures and paperwork. Ms. Spak's name was not among those certified by the Secretary of State.

    "I don't know what happened, they said they'd call me and didn't, you're the fifth person to call already and I'm not picking up the phone any more tonight," Ms. Spak told us with rapid fire lucidity.

    As previously reported by, Mr. Jackson, who lives in ELB with his wife and two kids (ages 3 and 5), filed the required paperwork and paid the $3,500 another $2,500 to have his candidate's statement printed.

    Mr. Jackson, a satellite project manager with Northrop-Grummon, earned a degree in electrical engineering summa cum laude from UCLA after ten years in the Navy and says he hopes to straighten out the state budget, make CA more business friendly, cut out wasteful regulations, fix workers comp and get waste and bureaucracy out of education.
