Mauricio Cardenas, the host of a popular T.V. show about soccer, is also involved in this organization. His media savvy will be a considerable asset to the association’s members.
Alex Vega is one of the founders of this organization. He is excited about helping the members to register to vote and he believes that this association’s members could become a political force in Santa Ana. Vega is a longtime supporter of Mayor Pulido.
Vega is also a proponent of “street soccer,” which entails playing soccer in the street, or in a parking lot. The concept comes from Mexico City, where there is a lack of green space and kids have literally taken to the streets to play soccer. In this country such an event would of course include city approval and safety measures, such as closing off certain streets.
