Bipartisan turnout for Garcia fundraiser

I’m giving the little pajarito one more chance. He reports tonight that Santa Ana Council Member Mike Garcia’s fundraiser in the Park Santiago neighborhood home of Leo and Yvette Aguilar was a success. Democrats and Republicans turned out, many with checks in hand.

Republicans in attendance included Ryan Gene Williams, the GOP candidate for the 69th Assembly District, and three Santa Ana City Council members who have mysteriously failed to endorse their GOP candidate Williams – Carlos “Bubba Gump” Bustamante; Alberta Christy; and Lisa Bist.

Santa Ana City Council candidates Tino Rivera and David Benavides were also there, as was Santa Ana School Board candidate Sergio Verino, who works as a city inspector.

Prominent Democrats in attendance included Santa Ana Planning Commissioner Harvey De La Torre, whose wife was just elected to the OC Democrat Central Committee; and my co-blogger Claudio Gallegos. Garcia’s friend and fellow council member, Jose Solorio, was not there, nor was Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido.

No one has filed yet to run against Garcia, and the filing deadline is coming up on August 11. His reelection should be a slam dunk.
