Voice of OC has some nice video from the last meeting.
Also seen on that video speaking against Walters is anti-American activist America Bracho, owner of Latino Health Access. She by the way claims to have a Medical degree from a South American country but has never been willing to prove it. She’s another one getting rich on the backs of the poor she claims to represent. Wish the D.A. would look into her activities.
This may force Dr. “Medi-cal” Lomeli to open a second office!
Somebodies gotta fix all those rotten teeth of the poor.
And somebodies got to pay for it: THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA!
Talk about getting wealthy on the backs of Santa Ana’s poor.
Here’s another look at Anti-American “Dr.” America Bracho. Judging from the way she’s sporting those jeans I’d say she ought to be taking some of her own advice and ride that bicicleta to the next rally and lay off the Masa!
Also at that closed meeting are probably the Feds.
They are spelling it all out for the council members.
Santa Ana can not handle the truth!
America can not handle the truth.
“So do us all a favor, Do yourself a favor” $$$
Just forget that any of this conflict ever happened.
Does Gerado have a college degree?
“Also at that closed meeting are probably the Feds”
Good point Mateo. Ask former Councilmember Ted Moreno about that! With Walters law enforcement connections I’d be shocked if he doesn’t have LOTS of notes and recordings of these 6 Bozos Councilmembers breaking the law. Does anyone think Martinez, Sarmiento, Tinajero and company will end up anywhere BUT in prison?
Do you mind speaking a little louder into that “water jug” Councilmembers:)???
What ever happened to that guy Gustavo who wrote for the OC Weekly. He used to write about Mayor Pulido but I have not read anything from him in some time.
Let me Rephrase that.
The Feds are spelling it out for the Council Members and The Mayor and the Police Chief/Manager.
Don’t you think that The Council Majority knows perfectly well about The former police Chief’s connections and the Mayor’s Connections? That is why this is all happening.
Stop treating the Council Majority like a bunch of ignorant little children.
They are all in it together and will have to figure out a solution together.
Someone should be looking into how Michele Martinez pays her rent, a payment on a BMW, affords a 6 thousand dollar bicycle and was able to loan her assembly campaign tens of thousands of dollars while only making 125 bucks a month as a councilwoman and not having a day job.
Isn’t tonight about appointing a replacement so Walter’s can sit at home while still being paid?
He is supposed to return to the police department.
Put that way this doesn’t sound like such a smart idea.
But we ain’t seen nothing yet. Wait for the SAPOA

You know else is probably in the closed session meeting?
I am pretty sure that she is a C.I.A. asset.
Specializing in Crises Management
just like Anderson (Vanderbilt) Cooper.

They may be thinking about it now Mateo but it’s too late. Sources close to the Feds tell me they have just may have hours of incriminating evidence against all 6 of them. (again, ask former Councilmembers and Council candidates Ted Moreno, Tony Espinosa, Hector Oliveras and Roman Palacio about that) It’s amazing how often gang members, like this current gang of 6, when you put them all together forget that the holding tank at the jail/police station, or in this case city hall conference rooms and council offices, are fully bugged. It’s always fun to read it back as a court transcript. My sources tell me that Michele, Vince, and Sal have some of the most entertaining material. Smile, you’re on Candid Camera! (and microphone:)

This one goes out to our lovely Councilwoman from Ward 2
