Pulido delivers state of the city address today

I read in the OC Register today that Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido is delivering his state of the city address today in an annual breakfast sponsored by the Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce. Here are some of the topics he won’t likely be talking about:

  • The pile of asbestos-laden debris that developer Mike Harrah’s subcontractor left outside the building they are demolishing to make way for the dreaded One Broadway Plaza building is still there – and there are three schools in the immediate vicinity.
  • The Santa Ana Public Library system, having just cancelled the popular bookmobile service, is now down to the main library and one extension on the westside – to service the youngest population in the OC. And Santa Ana still calls itself a “Reading City.” Sounds like doublespeak!
  • Construction is underway on Main St., just north of the 5 Freeway, where a huge complex of condos, lofts, etc. will eventually bring hundreds of additional vehicles to an area that is already landlocked during rush hour. I wonder how the new residents will like all the potholes on that stretch of Main St.?
  • The immigrant rioters who attacked County of Orange personnel and properties a few months ago have still not been identified or put in jail. And of course Pulido was not to be found during those riots.
  • While the political career of Claudia Alvarez has been effectively destroyed, her protege, Sal Tinajero, will likely be running against Pulido in the upcoming elections.
  • The Santa Ana Unified School District is in disarray in the wake of former Superintendent Al Mijares’ exit. Many of the area schools are in danger of being taken over by the state. Teachers are understandably frustrated and many of Mijares’ administrators need to go.
  • Pulido’s visit with cocaine farmer Evo Morales, in Bolivia, went great. Morales has now followed in the footsteps of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez as the latest South American dictator.
  • And last but not least – Pulido has learned from his South American friends. He gutted an attempt to establish mayoral term limits. All hail King Pulido!

People actually paid $50 to hear Pulido spin a web of deceit! At least they can find out the truth here for free…sans the continental breakfast of course.
