Last night I had the pleasure of attending Ward 4 Councilman David Benavides’ re-election kick off. Needless to say, the event was a great success and I see one of our better Councilmembers heading towards a re-election. The crowd was diverse with many people from the city insiders to the neighborhood folks, people who are usually at odds coming together to support David.
Sad that the city would just cast aside the will of the voters to allow tax payer dollars to be used to bail out Mike Harrah.
Either way, I see no problem with this business or its location and want to take a minute to promote it. For all you men looking to spice up your relationship with that special someone, or for the ladies who are looking to drive their man wild, I encourage you to shop at The Naughty Teddy located at 129 West Commonwealth Avenue Fullerton, CA 92832, their phone number is (714) 447-1130 and they are open from 11:30 A.M. to 2:30 A.M.
Downtown Santa Ana came alive last night as many of the political campaigns and insiders chose the Artists Village of Santa Ana to host their election night parties. The night was filled with some suprises, good(Steven Choi and Bill Hunt going down) and bad(Shawn Nelson winning).
I received the e-mail early this morning and felt this needed to be brought to the attention of people at once. So here we go, this is an e-mail from Vince Fregoso in the Santa Ana Planning Department. Apparently Mike Harrah is seeking “amdendments” to the Developer Agreement that was approved by the voters of Santa Ana in April of 2005.
This big news of the day is Loretta Sanchez finally co-sponsoring the DREAM Act, which would allow for the legalization of undocumented immigrants who were brought here when they were young and went through the school system to obtain a college degree. Honestly, I cannot think of any immigration change that is more deserving. I am glad Loretta Sanchez has given her name as a co-sponsor even though she has stated endlessly that she would vote for it if it were to come up for a vote.
The Orange County Grand Jury issues a report regarding the sweetheart contract given to Cordoba Corporation, despite being the lowest rated bidder by city staff. You can read about it HERE. I wish I could say I am shocked, but I am not, this is the culture of the City Council of Santa Ana. I know people say “pay to play” goes on all the time in politics, but Santa Ana’s elected officials at the city and school board levels have repeatedly shown it does not take much to play if you are a connected yet flawed company.
