I received an email Wednesday from Senior Assistant Attorney General Gary Schons regarding the complaint I filed last week regarding the possible violation of the Brown Act which had occurred at the August 2, 2010 meeting of the Santa Ana City Council.

The city of Santa Ana City Council leadership, their City Manager, and their City Attorney on Monday released a response to the Orange County Grand Jury report that was critical of the process the city used to award the contract to build a street car system in Santa Ana.

I joined Chris Prevatt at the City Council meeting last night. What a different demeanor the Council had in regards to Public Comments. The Mayor was very lenient on the time frame to turn in speaker cards and this time they took the harsh criticism leveled at them. I spoke briefly on the item to remove Tish Leon, letting them know they were essentially listening to the words of Art Pedroza, a man who promoted sex between men and boys on websites he owned and Sean Mill, a man who has threatened to harm multiple Santa Ana residents(he once threatened to kick me in the teeth in an e-mail and threatened in a text to Phil Bacerra to send gang members to his house).
In another demonstration of their flair for distraction from their own mistakes, the Santa Ana City Council is again using the power to remove members of city commissions as a diversion. This time they needed a way do distract from their collective failure to stop Mayor Pro Tem Claudia Alvarez from violating the right of Albert Castillo to address his grievances to his elected officials. The action by Claudia Alvarez has drawn the attention of the Attorney Generalâ€™s office.
A complaint filed by TheLiberalOC publisher Chris Prevatt with the OC District Attorney over the Brown Act violation by Santa Ana Councilwoman Alvarez has bee turned over to the Attorney General for investigation.
Here you have Mayor Pulido, letting a rogue Mayor Pro Tem Claudia Alvarez run public comment, along with the entire purpose of the Brown Act (Accountability) into the ground while he is sitting there playing a fiddle or something. Note to the Santa Ana City Council; If you can’t handle a little public criticism you’re in the wrong fracking business.
