Santa Ana resident Francisco J. Barragan is finally getting the chance to avenge his pal Alfredo Amezcua’s brutal loss to Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido in 2010. Barragan announced yesterday at the Orange County Young Democrats meeting that he is “entering the 69th Assembly District race,” according to the Liberal OC blog.
“After seeing the other candidates I think I have something unique to offer,” Barragan told the Liberal OC. “I wanted to have all the pieces of my campaign in place before announcing, but this meeting pushed up my announcement.”
I know this guy Barragan quite well. I ran into him back when I was the editor of the Orange Juice blog. He impresses you at first – he has a slew of certifications and titles and he brazenly calls himself the “Commander” of a local Latino veterans organization. Then he gets to talking. I invited him onto my Orange Juice radio show and good grief did this guy like to hear himself talk. It was stultifying.
