Note to Rosie Avila

A week ago, one of your representatives (volunteer or staff? I don’t know, she didn’t say and I didn’t ask.) came canvassing at my home. I was not able to receive visitors so I didn’t engage her in conversation even though she was appropriately enthusiastic about your candidacy.

In truth, I regret still that I was unable to have the conversation your representative wanted. I would have liked to find out more about some of your positions and the logic behind them.

My understanding is that you have an uphill climb in your campaign. If I may be so bold, may I suggest your campaign invest in a map of your district and acquaint your staff and volunteers with it? Your resources would be put to better use. Here’s why I make the suggestion. A resident of the South end of Santa Ana, I don’t live in your district.

Kind regards.

P.S. Bad news: If I did live in your district, I’d vote for Loretta. Sorry.

    Don’t forget that Rosie rode in the Santa Ana Fiestas Patrias parade in a car accompanies by SAUSD candidate Rob Richardson, her fellow Republican. And he is part of Jose Solorio’s “leadership team” along with Miguel Pulido, Vince Sarmiento, etc.

    Why did Solorio include a Republican who is allied with Avila on his :leadership” team?

    There ya’ go Bill, Rosie’s District map link ( the zoom zoom version just for you ) so you can check your ‘ version ‘ of the district. Rosie’s pricinct walkers only use district precinct maps to walk.

    They have much professional experience in walking the neighboorhoods in Santa Ana , gained after waliking theneighboorhoods in Santa Ana in the successfull Rosie Avila campaign to Recall Larry ‘ Nativo Lopez.

    Remember the words of the Lord Jesus Christ , ” You strain out a knat, and swallow a camel….”

    Oh David, I’m so very sorry.

    I have bad news and worse news for you.

    You are welcome to tell me anything you think is appropriate about how Rosie Avila conducts her campaign. And you can cite qualifications about her campaigners. In fact, if you want, you can tell me that typewriters eat peanut butter. But that doesn’t make it so.

    Bad news: When I moved to Santa Ana, I was thrilled at the prospect of being represented by Loretta Sanchez, the person who shot down B-1 Bob. To find out that a corner of Santa Ana — mine — was instead represented by Dana Rohrabacher was depressing.

    Truth be told, it is the Registrar’s office that tells me I’m in Rohrabacher’s district. Precinct number 68138.

    But here’s the clincher: It is Dana Rohrabacher *not* Loretta Sanchez who sends me occasional newsletters. If I lived in the 47th district (yours, presumably) and not the 46th, why would Rohrabacher send me anything?

    Worse news: Look at the map you sent. See where the 405 and 55 are? Look slightly up (North) from there and you will see, in the white area, the word “Main” as in street. I live right where the capital M is. It’s north of Sunflower, so it is Santa Ana and not Costa Mesa. Because it’s west of the 55, it’s Santa Ana, not Irvine. So even your map says I don’t live in her district.
