Beatriz Mendoza, a Field Representative for U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez, and a candidate for the SAUSD School Board, has been nominated by Santa Ana City Councilman Sal Tinajero to replace Sean Mill on the Planning Commission.
Mendoza’s nomination will be voted on at the upcoming Santa Ana City Council meeting on 8/2/16.
Mendoza has worked in the past at the Delhi Center and at the U.S. Department of Commerce, according to her Linkedin page. She studied at UCLA.
The Santa Ana Planning Commission has been taken over by gentrifiers this year. Currently one of the Planning Commissioners, Phil Bacerra, is trying to water down the city’s affordable housing ordinance. Hopefully Mendoza will tell him to take a hike!
