Maybe Michele Martinez needs a time machine so she can vote again for a new City Manager?
So this is what it has come down to. The two or three defenders of the Santa Ana City Council majority are now pleading on the blogs, anonymously of course, for a new national search for a new City Manager even though we already have one and he was selected unanimously by the Council. And they gave him a contract that pretty much backfires on them if they can him.
The reality folks is that the Council Majority is desperate to take complete power at City Hall and that is not going to happen as long as Paul Walters is at the helm. Note that former Mayor Pro Tem Claudia Alvarez is gone now. She was the one who kept these guys from breaking the law. The good news is that now she can come after them as an Orange County Deputy District Attorney – and that is just what it might come down to.
These awful Council members want Walters out so they can appoint a patsy, who will let them run wild. Rumor has it that they already have their guy selected and that all of this talk of a national search is total B.S. They allegedly want to hire Santa Ana Parks and Rec Agency Director Gerardo Mouet to replace Walters – even though Mouet has no experience as a City Manager and less qualifications and experience than Walters.
What say you? Here is your chance to vote in our new poll: Does Santa Ana really need a new City Manager?
