Anaheim residents, community organizations and Local Congregations believe it is imperative for residents to engage their potential community leaders on the important issues of the day affecting the city and for candidates to expound on their viewpoints for the city’s future.

    Art Pedroza over at the New Santa Ana Blog believes OCCCO is mob not a group that should be paid attention to.

    City of Anaheim officials believe the opposite. They wish to have them involved in the city’ s decision making process. Art Pedroza wants them excluded. He supports Pulido. You support a candidate because you believe their beliefs. It is why Pulido voted against the community groups including OCCCO ON THE SECOND PART OF THE SUNSHINE ORDINANCE.

    Pedroza is disgusted the council majority voted in favor of the sunshine ordinance as SACReD, the umbrella group for a large diverse coalition of community groups, asked the council to approve.

    He criticizes the council except Puliod, Bustamante and Alvarez who voted against the second part of the ordinance for approving the entire ordinance.

    Because the council voted in favor of the ordinance that this large diverse coalition of community groups he claims they are ghetto East LA council members out to turn Santa Ana into East LA.

    This is consistant with Pulido campaign strategy history and his strategic 25 year history of governing the city. The strategy is DIVIDE AND CONQUER BY SCARING THE WHITE FOLK TO HIS CAMPAIGN USING SIMILAR TRASH ABOUT TURNING THE CITY INTO A HISPANIC GHETTO.

    DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE NOT TO DEVELOPE THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY IS THE STRATEGY TO KEEP THE WHITE RESIDENTS ON HIS SIDE AS HIS MESSAGE THERE IS I WILL KEEP THE HISPANICS IN CHECK AND DISCOURAGE THEIR PRESENCE IN THE CITY.

    Reality is that this strategy of selective developement affects negatively all communities. I believe the Anglo community has realized this . It is why you now hear this divide and conquer strategy at the New Santa Ana Blog and will increase as the Election Day nears.
