I attended the Latino Health Access City Council candidates forum tonight. Well part of it. After hearing their moderator, Voice of OC Editor Norberto Santana, harass Santa Ana City Councilman Roman Reyna and his Ward 5 challenger, Juan Villegas, I had to leave.
The problem is that Santana is anything but an objective moderator at these functions. As you can see in the video above Santana harangued the candidates when they refused to give the answer he wanted them to give. Continue reading
Santa Ana City Councilman Roman Reyna must be in full panic mode by now. Reyna is running for reelection in November, but this time he is facing a 25-year member of law enforcement, Juan Villegas. Do you remember what happened to Reyna the last time he ran against someone in law enforcement?
Reyna got his butt kicked in 2004 by Claudia Alvarez, a Deputy O.C. District Attorney, when they faced off in that year’s Ward 5 election. Alvarez thoroughly trounced Reyna by over 16,000 votes, according to Smart Voter. Continue reading

Santa Ana’s assorted criminals, bad guys and thugs must not have read yesterdays puff piece by inexperienced and ineffective SAPD Police Chief Carlos Rojas, falsely claiming that crime has gone down on his watch. We already reported one shooting incident that happened today and now we have another one to report.
Santa Ana Ward 5 City Council candidate Juan Villegas, a law enforcement officer with 25 years of experience fighting crime, is hosting the kick-off to his campaign on Wednesday, Sep. 7, 2016, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Santa Ana Police Officer Association Hall, located at 1607 N. Sycamore, in Santa Ana.
Villegas is running against an incumbent, Councilman Roman Reyna, who recently voted against hiring more police officers despite the huge increase in violent crime over the past three years. Reyna’s brother reportedly died in prison and Reyna himself has admitted to being shot and wounded at a park when he was younger. When Reyna ran for Mayor of Santa Ana he was caught posing with members of the Mexican Mafia, in a picture that was widely circulated on social media. He refused to explain why he was hanging out with these individuals. Continue reading
There was another shooting on Monday, August 15, 2016, shortly after 7:30 p.m. at 2000 West 1st, in Santa Ana, near N. Raitt St.
A 23-year-old male Hispanic was walking in the area when an unknown vehicle approached from behind and a male suspect exited the car. The suspect fired several times at the victim. Continue reading
When Santa Ana Ward 5 City Councilman Roman Reyna first ran for the Santa Ana City Council, way back in 2004, he was thoroughly spanked by City Council Member Claudia Alvarez, whose ballot title included “Deputy D.A.”
Alvarez trounced Reyna in that election by almost sixteen thousand votes, according to Smart Voter.
Now Reyna is once more staring down the barrel of a gun as a law enforcement officer with 26 years experience at the O.C. Sheriff’s Department, Juan Villegas, is running against him in the upcoming November Primary Election. Will Villegas’s title result in another lopsided loss for Reyna? Continue reading
