Orange Juice adds its first female co-blogger!

Our blog team is growing again – in response to the growing demand for female representation on our commentator squad, Bernedette Medrano has stepped up and offered to add her pen to the mix.

For those of you who may not know Medrano, she is the Executive Director of the Santa Ana Education Foundation ( Medrano is accordingly an expert on education and her unique perspective will be a great addition to our blog.

Claudio Gallegos and I would be happy to add other female commentators – if you are willing to blog with your real name, not an assumed identity, and are well-versed in local politics, and experienced in writing, we would be happy to consider you for our blog cadre. You may email me at if you would like to be considered as such.

Thank you Bernedette for filling a void here at the Orange Juice! I know that we will all be looking forward to your contributions.
