Next week’s Santa Ana City Council meeting was moved to January 4, which is on Tuesday. Ordinarily the first Council meeting of the year would likely be a boring affair, but not this time. Our blogger, Sean Mill, is going to be re-appointed to the Santa Ana Planning Commission.
Mill served honorably on that Commission, and helped to shepherd the new Courtyard by Marriott, which is being built at MacArthur Boulevard and MacArthur Place.
I spoke to Mill today and he said that his goal as a Planning Commissioner will be to help to guide new developments through the planning process, as they will bring badly-needed jobs and economic growth to our city.
Mill works for a title company and he has been involved in Santa Ana politics virtually his entire adult life. He worked on Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido’s first campaign, many years ago, and also helped former Assemblyman Dick Longshore, who died in 1988, after winning the June primary that year.
Mill is a graduate of the University of California, at Irvine, where he earned a political science degree. In his college years he worked on the Wally George T.V. show. Mill also worked for Coach Jerry Tarkanian and the NCAA champion Running Rebels.
Mill works today for a title company. He has a great understanding of planning issues and development. Congratulations to Mill. I know that he will be a positive addition to the Santa Ana Planning Commission.
The agenda for next week’s Council meeting has not been posted yet. I suspect it will be up later this evening, at this link.
