The Santa Ana City Council members appointed themselves to various commissions at their meeting tonight.
There was a struggle behind the scenes in recent weeks as Councilman Roman Reyna, who has struggled to maintain a real job aside from his part-time City Council job, lobbied for commission appointments with fatter paychecks. He seems to have won as he did end up receiving two very plum appointments.
Here are the new commission appointments:
- Roman Reyna – the OC Water Board and the OC Vector Control District Board
- Angie Amezcua – the OC Fire Authority Board
- David Benavides – The Toll Roads Agency Board (TCA)
- Sal Tinajero – the OC Sanitation Board
