Sean Mill quits City of Santa Ana Commission

In a stunning development, Santa Ana Planning Commissioner Sean Mill quit his Commission at tonight’s Planning Commission meeting.

Mill, who used to write for us here at the Orange Juice, was appointed to Planning by his friend and ally, Councilman Sal Tinajero.  Ever since he was appointed, the “Usual Suspects” have been trying to toss Mill off his Commission. 

It turns out that Mill had spent a year on the City’s Historic Resources Commission.  The Planning Commission appoints one of their own to the Historic Resources Commission every year.  They wanted to re-appoint Mill to the Historic Resources Commission but he did not want to continue.  The Historic Resources Commission meets too early in the afternoon, Mill explained, so it forces him to leave work early.

The Historic Resources Commission also includes people like Al Bustamante and Glen Stroud.  I doubt Mill wants to hang out with them!

Mill was finally told by City staff that he could offer to resign from the Historic Resources Commission.  So he did.  But he is still on the Planning Commission!
