McGuigan files for Santa Ana’s Ward 6

I just heard that former Santa Ana Council Member Pat McGuigan, a longtime advocate for public libaries, has pulled papers to run for Ward 6, which is apparently being vacated by the incumbent, Mike Garcia. McGuigan is well-liked and will surely give Sal Tinajero a run for the money.

Here is some information I found about McGuigan, from her 1998 race, when she defeated Claudia Alvarez for Ward 6:
