Ward 6 candidate Helen Martinez refuses to talk about immigration and the Dream Act, while addressing Godinez High students

Helen Martinez, a candidate for Ward 6 on the Santa Ana City Council, showed up today at Godinez Fundamental High School, where she spoke to a combined group of students from three government classes.  Unfortunately for Martinez, the group included my son Joey, a senior and AP student, who quickly texted me.

Joey asked her stance on illegal immigration and the Dream Act; she chose to “reserve her opinion.”  What a cop-out!

However Martinez was able to give her opinion on prop 19, which she is opposing.   One student asked her why she was able to give her opinion on that but not on illegal immigration and she said “it’s because that isn’t a proposition.”  Lame!
