Due to a new career opportunity, Antioch City Council candidate Steven Bado has chosen not to campaign and instead, has dropped out of the race and endorsed fellow candidate, Lori Ogorchock.

Although I very much desired to serve the community and bring some common sense to the City Council, after much consideration, I realized that I just won’t have the time to fulfill the position, if elected,” Bado said on Sunday, October 26, 2014. “Instead, I ask all my family, friends and other supporters to vote for Lori Ogorchock for City Council. She will bring to the council her much needed business experience and common sense, as well as her long history of community service, to benefit Antioch.”

His name will still appear on the ballot, so he can still get votes. But Bado chose to back out, now so voters can redirect their votes to Ogorchock.

I appreciate Steven Bado’s endorsement and willingness to withdraw and support me for City Council,” Ogorchock said. “I encourage his supporters to feel free to contact me with their ideas and to give me the opportunity to get to know them. I can be reached through my website at or by phone at (925) 628-7764.” ”

Bado, age 40, is the General Sales Manager for Dublin of Honda. He has lived in Antioch for 37 years. He and his wife have three children, Bianca age 23, who is in beauty college, Anthony age 18, who is playing baseball for a traveling team, and Brianna age 17, who is a senior at Deer Valley and will be attending University of the Pacific next summer.

I want to thank my wife, family and friends who encouraged me to run,” he added. “I appreciate their support and hope to can count on it, again, perhaps in the future.”

Bado was one of eight candidates in the race. There are seven remaining. The election is on Tuesday, November 4.
