Santa Ana City Council To Discuss Term Limits Monday

Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on July 13, 2012

Apparently the City of Santa Ana is going to be discussing term limits at their meeting on Monday. We here at OC Political have received a tip that item 85B on the agenda will be discussed. The item was agendized by Councilwoman Michele Martinez and is titled “DISCUSSION OF POTENTIAL BALLOT MEASURE REGARDING MAYORAL AND COUNCIL TERM LIMITS.”

Information is limited at this time as to specifically what the Santa Ana City Council will be discussing with regards to term limits, but this should make for an interesting topic of conversation with all of the recent buzz.

In a recent article that I posted here on our blog, I discussed a lawsuit that was filed by Parks & Recreation Commissioner Max Madrid. The lawsuit is looking to allow Councilwoman Claudia Alvarez run for a 4th consecutive term. Chris Nguyen has speculated that the lawsuit may get thrown out due to Madrid does not have sufficient standing to bring the suit forward.

Tensions will be high at this meeting with the recent arrest of Councilman Carlos Bustamante, what looks to be a very long agenda, and Councilwoman Claudia Alvarez looking to be out of office in the very near future. My though is that discussing term limits will likely not be the most friendly part of this meeting.

We will have more information on this item as soon as it becomes available.

    Next best thing to Bustamante’s resignation: “Councilwoman Claudia Alvarez looking to be out of office in the very near future.”

    Silly, assumptions aside, Councilwoman Alvarez, has been effective, responsive and an otherwise decent leader for her district and the people she was elected to represent.

    That flies in the face of what bloggers from OUTSIDE Santa Ana, like to think. but few if any of them have walked through the ward, enjoyed the tacos at SOHO (but they are happy to have them cater at thier homes in Irvine!). Few if any of Claudia’s detractors have WALKED in central Santa Ana, which makes thier arguments disengenuous at best and political posturing on the surface.

    The woman is an assistant DA, not a realator, not a blogger, not a “PR Professional”, sure she is employed by the county, but in a profession, not as a clerk.

    This is a seat previously held by held Rob Richardson. The ultimate gravy train politician.

      You know so little about the ward, It was not Rob Richardson’s, it was Tom Lutz’s. If you are so wrong about that simple fact, why should we believe you have done any real homework as it pertains to Claudia’s performance.
