Vince Sarmiento dumping Deborah Vasquez from Santa Ana Redevelopment Commission

I served with Deborah Vasquez last year on the Santa Ana Housing and Redevelopment Commission.  She is a great commissioner.  She asks the right questions, does her homework, and represents the people of our city.

But last year Vasquez pulled her endorsement of Councilman Vince Sarmiento after the vicious attacks wielded by Sarmiento and his fellow Pulido team, against Michele Martinez.  Vasquez ended up backing Sarmiento’s opponent, Jim Walker.

Tonight Sarmiento is moving to dump Vasquez and replace her with Desi Reyes, a realtor who is a nice guy but a total Pulido hack.  Click here to read the City Council meeting agenda.

Sad.  Very sad.  Sarmiento has every right to do this, but the result will be the lamest commission ever.
