Supervisor Janet Nguyen, who represents the First District (including Santa Ana and much of Little Saigon) bought a sign a few years ago on an overpass on the 22 Freeway, which you can see in the slide show above. These signs are usually purchased by local non-profits and businesses. By purchasing the signs, they are promising to keep that area clean.
There was a lot of debate when Nguyen purchased this sign as to whether it was appropriate to let a politician use this process to advertise herself. She promised to keep the area clean and clear.
Well, it clearly isn’t, as you can see in the pictures above, it is terribly marred with graffiti. The anonymous source who sent me the pictures above says that the graffiti has been there for weeks, without abatement.
The pedestrian bridge in question is over the 22 Freeway, betwen Harbor and Fairview, between Santa Ana and Garden Grove.
