Former Santa Ana Commissioner Tish Leon gives her personal recommendation on Santa Ana’s Ward 2 City Council election.
The race for Tustin City Council is heating up a bit. The Orange County Labor Federation has dropped three mail peices to registered voters in Tustin on behalf of Beckie Gomez-McKeon and Sherri Loveland.

This morning I posted a YouTube video of Assemblyman Van Tran’s comment made during a debate with Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez where he stated “I am a Child Molester.” A different presentation of that comment showed up on YouTube today. I like it better than mine.
My phone rang several times over the weekend when residents of Santa Ana called to report that fire trucks were driving around the city with signs promoting the campaigns of Mayor Miguel Pulido, Councilman Sal Tinajero, and Assemblyman Jose Solorio. The callers were upset that while the fire truck has no decals to identify the fire agency and appears to be decommissioned and no longer in service; the intent is clear to those neighbors just getting a quick look that on duty Santa Ana firefighters and a working fire unit is driving their neighborhoods in support of three local candidates for public office.
It was a bit of a cold and damp week in South County. As always, though, there was a lot going on. As I was about town, I got a chance to talk to a few of the regulars on Street Corners. The old Veteran was at his old station continuing to ask for help. When I went up to talk to him and asked him how things were, his only comment to me was, “the man up there will take care of things…”. I wanted to again ask whether he had gone up to the One Stop Center. I also told him about a Security Job Opportunity that I saw that he could potentially qualify for.
