On Sunday January 27th I wrote a post about Santa Ana’s angriest couple, Glen and Julie Stroud, sending a letter to Mayor Miguel Pulido and the entire City Council demanding my removal from the city’s Planning Commission, accusing Councilman Sal Tinajero and myself of creating a racial divide among the citizenry. Well the angry couple is at it again sending yet another letter to Pulido and company reiterating their demands for my removal.
So why is it that the Stroud’s believe I should be removed? Unethical conduct? Malfeasance? Criminal activity? No, it is for none of those reasons. The reason they want me removed is because they don’t like what I write in the blogosphere and they don’t like that I am willing to challenge “their views” about what is best for “their community”. They are used to getting things their way and they don’t like to be questioned. This is a classic case of bullies getting a taste of their own medicine and not liking it.
In a January 21st letter to the editor the Stroud’s slammed the city council for cancelling a council meeting, sarcastically saying that they guess Santa Ana doesn’t have any serious issues to address and can afford to cancel the meeting. Well obviously they must believe that Santa Ana doesn’t have any more important issues to deal with than removing me from the Planning Commission. I find it to be quite hypocritical of them to criticize the council for not focusing more on the problems facing our community when they are spending so much time focusing on my removal from the Planning Commission.
Their constant anger and unbridled hatred of Tinajero and myself has blinded them to what is important, improving Santa Ana. They believe there is only one way to improve Santa Ana, theirs. Well their agenda of gentrification, un-Constitutionally closing streets, attacking vendor trucks and generally anti-immigrant policies will never sit well with me or the majority of Santa Ana residents. I will continue to fight them no matter how many letters they send to Mayor Pulido and the City Council.
