Man beat with a hammer after leaving New Year’s Mass in Santa Ana

“A 60-year-old man leaving New Year’s Day Mass was assaulted by a man who was hiding in his van, police said.  The incident unfolded at 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church at 541 E. Central Ave., said Santa Ana police Cmdr. Tammy Franks,” according to the O.C. Register.

2009 is looking far worse already than 2008!  Santa Ana is the county leader in weird acts of violence.  I doubt you will find such attacks in any other Orange County city.

When will our City Council finally fire our inept and overpaid Chief of Police, Paul Walters?  And how about firing lame City Manager Dave Ream?  It is time for a fresh start!  We desperately need new leadership at City Hall.

Our residents are being attacked at churches now – and a woman was recently robbed in her own driveway.  Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido told us late last year that Santa Ana was one of “Orange County’s safest cities.”  Isn’t it time for him to apologize publicly for that blatant lie?  Shouldn’t Pulido’s entire “Team” (Carlos Bustamante, Claudia Alvarez and Vince Sarmiento) apologize for repeating this lie in their campaign mailers?

Here’s a New Year’s Resolution for Team Pulido – stop lying to your constituents!
