Please welcome our newest blogger!

I know I said I would not add any more Santa Ana bloggers, but with two of our Santa Ana bloggers off the team in recent weeks – one of his own volition – and Claudio Gallegos on a recess as he celebrates the birth of his new baby, I needed some help – and I found a very capable new blogger to help me cover the Orange County seat. Please welcome Sean Mill – who has already hit the ground running, so to speak, with a rousing piece on Santa Ana School board member Rosie Avila.

Mill is a lifelong resident of Santa Ana, and he works as a data specialist for a title insurance company. He tells me that he is a “proud progressive Democrat.” Mill is a 1990 graduate of UC Irvine, with a B.A. in Political Science (that will come in handy here at the Orange Juice). He is also a former Chairman of the Santa Ana Parks and Recreation Commission, and a former Vice-Chairman of the Santa Ana Uniform Code Appeals Board. He also has run twice for the Santa Ana City Council, in 1992 and 1994.

Mill is also a diehard USC Trojan and Tony Stewart fan. I didn’t know that! I did know however that he is a political junkie who has been involved in local politics since 1984.

I am excited about adding Mill to our team and I know that he will contribute regularly. I look forward to reading his exposes of the ongoing political abuses in Santa Ana. Go get em’ Sean!
