COUNCILMAN ROMAN REYNA
SANTA ANA CITY COUNCIL
20 CIVIC CENTER PLAZA
P.O. BOX 1988, M31
SANTA ANA, CA 92701

Dear Councilman Reyna,

I write on behalf of the Santa Ana Police Officers’ Association, its Board of Directors and Political Action Committee.

It has come to our attention that you, along with two other men, recently posed for a photograph that was posted on Facebook. We find it very disturbing that you posed with these men. Both are known to Orange county law enforcement as being affiliated with Santa Ana criminal enterprises. Furthermore, the individual believed to have posted the photograph identified you in his post as the “the new Mayor of Santana old homie from the hood…”

We are aware many friends can be called a “homie” and people do identify themselves as living in or being from the “hood”. These words alone should not produce a negative opinion of another person. However, when coupled with a photograph of known members of a Santa Ana criminal enterprise, and posted on an Internet social media website, we feel that far exceeds mere poor judgment. As a city policymaker, this photograph and comments presents the appearance and perception of your lack of ability to be a trustworthy and effective community leader.

Accordingly, we feel that it is important you formally respond to this issue and the negative reaction your decision has caused. Please respond in writing addressed to “Members of the Santa Ana Police Officers’ Association,”

1607 N. Sycamore, Santa Ana, CA 92701.

Sincerely,

JOHN FRANKS

  1. Maybe because these two homeboys will be voting this mayoral race. All votes counts! So please vote if you want to see some real changes in SA.

      1. If a felon is off parole he/she can vote. Let’s not forget enough citizens voted to elect Roman, not once but twice to public office. The non-citizen comment is lame.

        People should ask Roman if the neighborhood chisme is true about his brothers death and that he wouldn’t let his Mom pay to bring Sammy home for a proper funeral. Chisme is his brother died of Aids (R.I.P.) and he was cremated. Some people say Sammy is still at the prison and some people say his ashes were sent to his Mom.

        I believe not letting his Mom bring Sammy home speaks a lot about Roman’s character. If he had no love for his brother, he ain’t got no love for the people of Santa Ana. And we all know he ain’t got no High School Diploma,

          1. Stay on track and don’t go off into another tangent. Your comment about noncitizen voting is lame. It’s a dead horse.

          2. Lame …How so “Mugsy” ?

            The reality is that that the MAJORITY of Roman’s ward are undocumented. Which means they have no real voice in what happens. Mr. Reyna has been wishy-washy at best on this subject, he openly opposed allowing non-citizens vote for community seats like school board or citizen commissions.

            Roman claims to represent the people, but what did he really do to help parents in SAUSD?

            I know he acted as “Grand Marshall” to a memorial for a man, FR. Cofield, who sodomized DOZENS of young Latin boys in downtrodden neighborhoods.

            The TRUTH IS Roman Reyna thinks it’s OK for MEN to RAPE the buttholes of young boys, and he throws them parties, but he somehow is offended by a real estate transaction?

            I’ll take the bad property deal over the traumatic RAPE of a young boy any day. But Maybe Monsignor C. had more influence on young Roman than we thought. That would explain a young (unmarried, childless) man’s obsession the YMCA and at risk youth!

          1. Did someone say pedophile priests?

            Roman has my vote!!!! Well he would if I actually live in Santa Ana.

      2. Lol very true thats why i love when the majority doesnt include the mentioned and ppl want change tokep ignorant ppl like u from voting

    1. What mayor do you know that stays in office for over a decade? Pulido changed the law in Santa Ana for statue of limitations on mayor when he was voted in. The citizens of S.A. are docile and asleep. You are only entitled to 4 years max as mayor and in some cases voted on every 2 years. The food4less on 1st street use to be homes. Pulido knocked it down to give his father Ace auto repairs. You see it everytime when you drive in the food4less. Go in and ask who is the owner of Ace Auto repair on 1st and you will be shocked. Pulido does not even live in S.A.!! He lives in newport. and the new guy he brought in from AZ. lives in newport too. ALL OF OFF S.A. tax payer money. This came out in the Register but nobody cared. I went to city hall and spoke my piece. I once saw Pulido strong arm a subway food joint to give him and his family free sandwiches. The cops supporting this man is not a good sign. All police now at days are nothing more then homegrown terrorist. Killing unarmed black and brown people. I would go for the guy the cops dont like. Thats usually safer.

      1. The reality is that the Council enjoys three four year terms while the Mayor only gets three two year terms.

        Ace Muffler has been at that location for a long time. In fact Pulido became Mayor when he stopped the city from seizing the property via eminent domain. They wanted to knock down the property.

        Pulido has a beautiful home in Floral Park and has lived there for many years.

        I am not a fan of the City Manager but the reality is that the City Council fired our former City Manager and THEY hired this new guy and overpaid him.

        Finally did you know that the police were busy today pursuing armed robbers who stole a car and then ran off near MainPlace Mall? They do dangerous work on our behalf. If they kill someone it is usually a bad guy who had it coming.

        BTW, SAUSD School Board member John Palacio has been elected for 16 years. I hope you will join me in voting for someone else this year.

      2. Hey genius, Do the Names Loretta Sanchez, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Fienstien, Larry Agran or Dana Roherbacher ring a bell. These folks too are all past their prime. Maybe Miguel is too.
        I am OK saying that. But when the alternative is………
        Roman Reyna? Come on Anonymous, Stevie Wonder can see that Roman is not ready. Here is the reality, ROman showed his cards when he took Benavides sweet d!ck in his mouth. Instead of being his own man, Roman listened to the bullshit these people fed him. He should have played it slow. Instead, just like his high school diploma, he’s gonna come up short.

        I hope Alex Flores is reading this. Pay your dues, build alliances but always remain independent and free thinking. Sean Mill will make a fine council member one day, ten years ago: NO WAY.

        A great coach once said:

        “Son, sometimes in life you have to kiss a$$. But, you NEVER have to suck d!ck”

        Slow and steady wins the race, not Facebook likes.

  2. Great message from SAPOA, know your place and disavow where you come from. A FB picture is equivalent to guilty. So now the SAPD wants to invoke an injunction on social media? Its time the residents take back the city from the SAPD, specifically the gross percentage of budget that they have hijacked over the last three decades during the Pulido reign.

    Take that money and provide the residents 21st century services that actually can change the course of our underprivileged youth and reroute their lives just as many of us were lucky to come out of the “hood”.

    This propoganda is precisely why I say vote for change in leadership.

      1. I wasn’t sure who I was voting for but now I know I will be voting for Reyna. Why? Because Reyna is inclusive of all SA residents not just those from flora park. Thanks editor.

        1. Nice try. The problem in this city is the gangs. Reyna has now shown where his alliances are. He should resign from the City Council in disgrace.

          1. Resign?? Why?? Because he was raised in SA and is well known? Come on! Good try! For us SA residents, we all have lived close to or in the hood. And there’s people with GANG AFFILIATION everywhere in SA. These guys “ran into” him there and asked for a picture. And being called a homie does not mean you’re in a gang!!! Roman has my vote!!

  3. Reyna serves on the Public Safety Committee of the City Council. His colleagues should act swiftly and remove him from that position. His close ties to the criminal underworld in Santa Ana should disqualify him from serving on that committee.

  4. A PICTURE DOES NOT MEAN HE’S A GANG MEMBER! HE RAN INTO THESE GUYS THERE AND THEY ASKED FOR A PICTURE. FOR US THAT GREW UP IN SA, WE HAVE ALL LIVED SOMEWHERE IN THE HOOD AND MAYBE NEIGHBORS WITH PEOPLE THAT HAVE GANG AFFILIATION. COME ON IGNORANT PEOPLE. THIS MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!! ROMAN HAS MY VOTE!!!!!!

      1. Yeah. We’ll see. Hopefully he will get some from the SAPD to act in a professional manner. Two encounters with SAPD and they were horrible. One gave me his phone number and was very flirtatious. How unprofessional is that?

  5. I dont have an issue with him knowing these chumps. Plus, the two guys pictured are light-weight wannabes. My concern is that ONE person is funding almost a 100% of Roman’s campaign. That doesnt come for free.

    1. And that person who is funding the Reyna mailers is a high density apartment developer. More high density apartments is the last thing we need in Santa Ana!

    2. someone should dig into that more…isn’t it the same guy who was accused of giving $10k for another council members fundraiser? The Met development guy? Guy in a sh*t fight with City Place developer…a former partner of his? lots of this smells very bad…

  6. Neither Roman Reyna or Miguel Pulido will get rid of gangs in Santa Ana! It’s better to know of them than ignore them as they are also residents (voting residents) of Santa Ana Wow, so if you know gang members or you run into them don’t take a picture? This is becoming CUBA! It’s called social media! Social people! I as a bail bondsman know different kinds of people from drug dealers, gangmembers, politicians, etc etc I associate with them I provide a service to them. Roman Reyna is a public servant to the city of Santa Ana, all the city not just Floral Park also El Salvador Park! Get over it, John Franks. Take time to patrol our streets not Facebook

    1. This coming from the guy who helps release these criminals on our streets!

      Luis, Stick to giving Amezcua referrals, he’s going to need them to pay for Valerie’s eating binge after she loses the School board race.

      Public Servant my A$$. He’s a low level loser, who is being played by all sides. I feel sorry for the guy in a way, he’s too dumb to understand he’s being used.

      1. Referrals? Do you even know how I run my biz? funny! Criminals have rights too my friend i provide a service to the needy and Santa Ana has a lot of needy!

  7. There you go again Editor. Reyna takes a photo with some guys from his old neighborhood and “he should resign from the city council in disgrace”?! No doubt this was not a wise move on his behalf. But as one commenter mentioned, if you grew up as a kid in Santa Ana, the sad fact is that many of your friends from when you were a little kid became gang members, and although you may not agree with their decisions, you still have a level of care and concern for them. It does not mean that you have chosen a completely different path. Now that being said, the lack of wisdom here in concerning.

    Again, this just shows your bias. One foolish picture and Reyna should resign. However, a serious criminal investigation of the mayor is nothing we should pay any attention to. It’s all just so biased and your arguments and logic are continuously inconsistent.

    Don’t get me wrong, this was a mistake and voters need to consider who they want leading and being the face of our city. My point is that you need to gain some perspective here. This photo would be no reason to resign or even something that he should apologize for if these guys are merely childhood friends. It would be wise of him to acknowledge that this could create a perception of his involvement with characters like these. He could use it as both an opportunity to thank SAPD for their great service and apologize for offending them, while at the same time claim Santa Ana as his lifelong home where he has acquaintances of all different kinds.

    All that being said…that definitely won’t play well with votes in a mailer. I can see the Old English script over the top of this photo in a mailer arriving any day about the “Homie Roman Reyna”.

        1. The Santa Ana Police Officers Association will no doubt be asking him to resign from the Public Safety Committee. He should do us all a favor and resign from the City Council too.

    1. Curious. This is not Little League. The leader of one of California’s largest and most troubled cities needs to be smarter than taking pictures with these losers. I don’t care if he gave birth to them. Roman’s an IDIOT.

  8. I can’t believe I read this posting on my Facebook page. I have known Roman since we worked together running teen programs in Santa Ana for the YMCA back in 2000 and on. He is genuinely a NICE GUY! He is a kind man who cares about people. What are the odds of growing up in Santa Ana and not having childhood friends who may have decided to be in a gang or be involved in illegal activities? Roman doesn’t judge people or turn his nose up to anyone. I know many white collar criminals here in Orange County who are always taking pictures with everyone and posting on social media. Your article is ridiculous. Do you even know him? Roman has my vote any day of the week and twice on Sunday!

    1. Those are not former gang bangers. They are members of the Mexican Mafia.

      Roman’s brother died in prison. Too bad Roman didn’t learn from that.

      Reyna should resign from the City Council.

      1. If they are mexican mafia, wouldn’t you be in danger of retribution? Unless, of course they are not and you are lying again. Which is it?

        1. That’s what Reyna was hoping. He was counting on people being too afraid to make this public. Well the POA is not afraid.

          Where is the Voice of OC and Adam? You won’t hear a peep about their boy hangin’ with La Eme on that site. Doesn’t suit their biased agenda.

          1. Bad news Mensa,

            I heard Adam is in UCI Medical Center (for all their liberal leanings Dunn and Santana don’t give the guy health insurance!) he choked on Nick Bernardino’s balls this afternoon.

            In related news, Blogger Greg Diamond was reportedly admitted to the hospital (also a medi-cal/Cal-Optima customer), after getting excited about Adam’s post, masterbating to climax (with the help of a bottle of Amynil Nitrate) falling back in his chair (it was only rated for 300#) and knocking himself unconscious.

            The ambulance drivers assumed it was the other window on the PC that caused this: “EXPLOITED ASIAN TEENS” where young filapina girls are videotaped in sex acts with American Men. No doubt Diamond who has defended Teacher Student SEX, was just doing “RESEARCH” for a study.

            I hope Greg and Adam are OK! Maybe they can save California some money and share a room!

    2. Sheri (AKA Art Lomeli), Really, you know a lot of “White Collar” criminals? Which ones?

      Roman doesn’t judge people? Maybe he should start. He is asking me to vote for him to be the spokesperson for 400,000 people and hundreds of millions of dollars and he runs with street thugs?

      ROMAN HAS NEITHER THE EDUCATION, SENSE OR INTELLIGENCE TO LEAD

      This is not a popularity contest. NICE GUYS FINISH LAST (and go to prison for leaking documents)!

  9. Who said that Roman “ran into” these guys in passing?

    Did Roman Reyna say that? To whom and when?

    Roman lost ALL credibility when he cowered out on the FTP issue last week. No he has his straw men (and women) here explaining it was a “chance encounter”.

    WHO SAID THAT?
    DID ROMAN REYNA SAY HE “RAN INTO” THESE CRIMINALS
    WHY DID HE AGREE TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED? DID ROMAN SAY THAT?

    We have a bunch of reactionaries here but again NOTHING from the candidate, how can we expect to believe in you when you won’t even address this?

    1. The FB post says that those guys “ran into the new mayor”. That’s why people are saying that. He will hopefully respond soon so this issue can die off. I think it’s hard for people that haven’t spent years and years in Santa Ana to understand how things work. To most it seems terrible that he would be caught in a photo with these guys. However, there are very rough neighborhoods where great kids grow up in the apartment next door to gang kids. They often still bump into each other often over the years, their moms are friends, they see each other when home for the holidays, etc. It’s most likely not as nefarious as painted. But it’s significant enough that Reyna should respond, especially to the SAPOA. There are many very outstanding cops in SA and of course a few bad ones I’m sure. They do deserve a response. And yes, Reyna should be smart enough not to pose in pictures with these guys, or least tell the homies to PLEASE not post the photo!

      1. These men aren’t kids they are members of La Eme and that is why the police are so upset with Reyna. His brother died in prison. Perhaps Reyna never left these circles but was luckier than his kin.

          1. Perhaps you forgot that Reyna attacked Mayor Pulido’s brother at a recent City Council candidates debate. Pulido’s brother runs a muffler shop and he fell behind on taxes due to the stupid PBID Downtown Santa Ana tax that wrecked a lot of small businesses in DTSA.

            How can Reyna attack a man who is working an honest job and trying to support his family when Reyna’s own brother died in prison? Unbelievable!

          2. The Reyna/Benavides team went after Pulido’s children last election so spare the sanctimonious outrage.

  10. Funny how people assume the worst. He did a documentary about how where he was raised and how he CHANGED to become a successful man.

    1. Assumptions aside, Roman is an extremely poor speaker, he doesn’t communicate well, I\he has trouble forming his thoughts, he is admittedly learning impared (dyslexic), claims to have a High School diploma, but no college.

      Change for Roman would be the cashier at the carwash, given his credentials, but mayor of the fourth most densely populated city in America. Pardon the “Dense” pun.
      He is WOEFULLY unprepared to lead.

      He should get a job and earn a reputation, that’s what LEADERS do.

      Please tell us about America barracho and how she slid him into the “wellness center”,

      1. This comment shows the level of intelligence you really have, coming from”carpet bagger” who called themselves that.

  11. I was going to take a picture with Roman Reyna at the SAUSD debate was intimidated they might think I belonged to the mafia. So I didn’t.
    #ihavenogangaffiliatio

    1. I was going to take a picture with Roman too, then I asked myself why in the world would I want a picture of me and an unemployed high school dropout?

      So I instead chose to take my picture with a higher class, more intelligent and more qualified to serve candidate, Steve Rocco.

  12. At a recent public meeting, Mr. Reyna advocated putting a facility for the homeless in the city owned lot at Civic Center and English. Just thought the neighbors there around El Salvador Park would like to know what is in store for them. This comment by Reyna was made on the record. At the same meeting Ms. Martinez advocated taking storage facilities away from Bpwers Museum and giving the storage to the homeless, also on the record.

  13. I’m actually glad that Roman considers everyone in the community as a community member. He’s not dehumanizing anyone whether they’ve gone through a “right” or “wrong” path. Good job Roman! Do not belittle anyone 🙂

    1. Roman left the dehumanizing to the pedophile priest he held in such high regard that he led the effort to honor him. Good job Roman!

  14. Growing up and to be of Hispanic decent and or grow up in a city like Santana automatically you are labeled as a gang member or you have some sort of ties w/ others who are considered gang members. And sure when you break the law yes you go to jail along with multiple charges or enhancements that are thrown . But can you tell me what the difference is with those in uniform who commit probably similar if not more crimes , why are they able to hide behind the badge and have their actions be justified? Oh, because the badge protects them. But we don’t refer to them as gang members but officers!! Bunch of bullshit!!!

    1. How many people have the gangs killed this year versus those killed by cops? And of those shot by cops how many were actually innocent? The numbers don’t lie. The gangs are the problem, not the cops.

          1. I would say that Reyna did himself in. Posing with dangerous gang bangers during an election was not smart on Reyna’s part.

            But not voting really isn’t an option. I would rather have two more years of Pulido than let the gangs take over City Hall.

            We have two years then to find a decent candidate for 2016 particularly since the Mayor has told me that he most likely will retire by then.

            Look how many great school board candidates we have this year! Surely we can drum up a few decent Mayoral candidates as well. Gang bangers need not apply…

  15. For those of you on the outside looking in, Yes you biased fools who do NOT know a thing about Santa Ana. I have known these men since we played little league baseball at El Salvador park back in the 70’s. We have all chosen our paths in life, some successful and others not so successful. The majority of us are buisness owners, Law Enforcement officers, home owners, Doctors, Nurses and hard working blue collar productive members of society. So what that being said, Mr. Reyna should not be LINCHED or thrown in a den of hungry lions because of people we have known since childhood. I am proud and lucky to say that I have friends from my old neighborhood that go back 30+ years that I can call HOMIES! { Please respond to my comment and let me know what you think. Folks from the neighborhood, SAPD and whoever that has a voice and wants to be heard.} Thank you for your time.

    Sincerely,
    Just an old friend from the neighborhood.

    1. These guys have been identified by the police as active members of the Mexican Mafia. That is why the police rejected Reyna and that is why they have asked him to explain himself.

    2. Exactly hoe many Doctors and nurses came out of El Salvador park old friend.

      Reyna himself is uneducated, unemployed and ill equipped to lead. So far he has refused to speak out. Telling me he is embarassed of his “Homies”.

  16. It takes a little man to bring up someone’s sibling for his past {dying in prison] obviously “Editor” has a sparkling clean family and squeaky clean friends. If you can’t say anything good about someone don’t say anything, remember “karma” is a bitch !!!!

    1. You mean like when Reyna attacked Pulido’s brother for having tax problems even though those problems were caused by the City’s PBID program? Or when Benavides and his goons attacked Pulido’s kids two years ago?

  17. Roman Reyna like any other person knows people being called a homie doesn’t mean he is in a gang he knows the struggle to be someone in life his intention’ s are not bad I heard a lot of police officers that call other people homie when your getting pulled over ect. He has my vote

  18. I went to school with Roman Reyna & grew up down the street from him. He has never ever been a gang member. I know him personally & just because he sees 2 old class mates either from school or the neighborhood we lived in & poses in a pic with them doesn’t mean he is a gang member or affiliated with them. The word homie can be used or referenced as “friend”. He is a very respectful,good hearted & friendly person. I have seen his hard work in the schools & neighborhood’s for children,youth & families. My 3kids attended after school program when I was working & Roman was a staff member assisting kids with homework,sports,activities & good values in a safe environment for them. He was a great Mentor to my children & helped lead them all to graduate. He also was their Counselor for summer camp & helped make wonderful memories for them. He participated to raise money & supported for more after school programs & YMCA’s to be opened in many cities in Orange County. I have personally seen his volunteer & many hard work hours to our city. Just because he is running for Mayor doesn’t mean he has to ignore the people in our city because they are know gang members. This story is a complete lie & they are trying to make him look bad & discourage votes for him. I condemn the writer for this story. Mr. Roman Reyna still has my vote & I will always RESPECT this wonderful man. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. This story is full of politic bull crap. It’s not true. I believe in Roman Reyna & the great man he is because I personally have seen what he has done, can do & will do for this city & the people. Thank you.

    1. You condemn the Santa Ana Police Officers Association? They wrote the press release.

      Reyna wasn’t a volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club or at the YMCA. He was a paid staffer. Perhaps if he had stayed in school he might have had better jobs.

      The men Reyna posed with weren’t random homies they were hard core gang bangers. They work in organized crime. Reyna was stupid to pose with them.

    2. I believe Roman Reyna to be all of the things you said Monica.

      THAT DOES NOT MAKE HIM A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR.

      Santa Ana has many problems that need be handled by a mature, responsible educated person. Roman is none of those things. He lacks the intellectual ability to govern a city with 400,000 residents, many who live in poverty with little or no education themselves.

      There is a big difference between helping your kids with their homework and bargaining with the police union or the county on firefighters.

      You sound well intentioned but severely misinformed about the requirements of office.

      I am stunned the idiots at the Liberal blogs are lying to people.This guy is NOT capable of being mayor. PERIOD.

  19. Silly people! The Serve and Protect people (the police industry) needs the “mexican mafia” guys as much as The U.S. Government needs I.S.I.S.

    We are here to protect you. Now Pay up!

    1. What I am saying is that he is not a gang member as they are trying to portray in this picture & story. So I gave some truth on what kind of person he is. If you don’t know him personally,you might believe the lies of this story & that’s exactly what this story was intended for. Roman Reyna is doing alot more than most in this city for the people in our city so don’t judge or condemn him for trying. He still has my vote & many who has witnessed his hard work in our communities. Plus this city needs a good change & I believe in Roman Reyna. Please vote for Roman Reyna. Thank you & God Bless.

        1. Hardcore gang banger? Hahaha. Police also claimed my dad was a hardcore mexican mafia member who was too dangerous to be on the street…my dad cant even walk! Don’t believe everything you’re told, silly.

  20. So the moral of the story, according to the police dept. is to not take pictures with Mexicans because you may be accused of being a gang member affiliate! Good work SAPD!

  21. It’s doesn’t matter if they say homie and Frm the hoos it probably meant he lived in the area if we are to distinguish words there u go it doesn’t matter if two people were known as members or not they have the right to word it in anyway they want and what now we can’t even say certain words without being categorized ?

  22. We need change in Santa Ana. Too many corrupt politicians in this city. I would vote for Roman Reyna because he is a tangible person who is in the community, hands on. He’s been working with youth all his life and all these other officials are not in the community. They are behind a desk with suit and tie rubbing shoulders with SAPD or some big WIG from down town. Not impressed by non of these officials. Never even heard about half of them. GET OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY AND BE TANGIBLE AND SERVE YOUR COMMUNITY. Accusing someone of un-substantiated claim is dirty politics, and its old. People are wiser now and are ready for change.

    1. For the last time, Reyna was PAID to work for the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA. He did not do that work as a volunteer.

      I do have to wonder why he was fired by the YMCA…

  23. This picture shouldn’t have a negative impact on Roman, I’m writing this on my wife’s pho because she showed me this ludicrous post as to your opinion as to why Roman Reyna can’t be a trust worthy candidate. Notice I put OPINION, because it’s not a fact, and whoever posted this obviously didn’t know much about Roman. His brother was the one with ties to a hood & am sure you’ve all heard Roman say that it was his brother who made wrong choices and decisions. Roman was always known as the homie’s brother but he himself has never played an active part in any gang, furthermore; being that he can reach out to gang members he can always take different approaches to prevent our youth from being involved and it can change allot in a positive way in many gang infested areas. If needed he’ll be able to have a meeting in the heart of a hood and send a message across, and have positive results without having overly zealous officers involved unless it’s necessary and I believe that’s the difference between Mr. Pulido & Mr Reyna who isn’t the city’s puppet, he can deal with issues when problems arise and having knowledge on youth involvement in gang issues is just another reason to have him as a new mayor.

      1. Because Mr Reyna is running a campaign and has no time to reply or comment on irrelevant issues to who he took a picture with or even I can’t dismiss the possibility of the fabrication of a posted comment on that picture.
