The Metzlers party hard in Santa Ana while so many go without

There is a very revealing story in yeserday’s O.C. Register regarding Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Mike Metzler. The article discloses what happened at his Christmas Party this week, at his home in West Floral Park.

I was amazed at the description of the sheer grandeur of Metzler’s party and home. I wonder how the working poor in Santa Ana felt about this incredible expenditure at a time when so many people are suffering? Here are a few of the details disclosed in the article:

  • The Metzlers have not one but TWO Christmas trees
  • Greeters, a professional photographer and a magician were employed at the party. I wonder if any of them were Santa Ana residents?
  • Noted Mexican hater Tim Rush was one of the invited guests. Other guests included former Council Member Lisa Bist and Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.
  • The party was catered by the Turnip Rose, which is based in Costa Mesa. How do you like that? The director of the SANTA ANA Chamber of Commerce DID NOT use a Santa Ana based business to cater his event. That figures.
  • Guests dined on “French Country Chicken Breast and Corn Bisteca Proven
