Santa Ana Council: Brown Act doesn’t apply to us. We have side meetings all the time.

I think I’ve figured out the problem that the Santa Ana City Council has with following simple rules of transparent and ethical government, They don’t really give a crap what the rules are. They have figured out that they can ignore those rules, as well as city laws regarding ethics, campaign contributions and voting, and get away with it. I have written extensively about this problem over the past year and coverage of Monday’s Santa Ana City Council meeting by Adam Elmahrek of the Voice of OC made this truth even more apparent.

Santa Ana Council Special Closed Session Meeting – Yep they screwed up again with Brown Act Violation

Mayor Miguel Pulido called a Special Meeting of the Santa Ana City Council for Monday evening at 5 pm. The meeting started late, a little after 5:30 pm. While Mayor Pulido was in the building (at least five of us shook his hand at around 5 pm), he was no where in the conference room. I did look under the table just to be sure he wasn’t hiding. Also missing were Councilmembers Martinez and Mayor Pro Tem Alvarez.
