200 Years of Mexico, 100 of Revolution

In recent posts, I have been drawing parallel’s between the events in Mexico in 1810 and 1910 and events in Santa Ana in 2010.

David Benavides Campaign Kickoff a Massive Success

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Ward 4 Councilman David Benavides’ re-election kick off.
