State Senator Lou Correa’s “Taste of Orange County” fundraiser on Tuesday, Oct. 27, was a huge success.  Comedian Paul Rodriguez drove down from the San Joaquin Valley to talk about the water crisis in his area, caused by the Delta Smelt.  And he shared a lot of jokes with the audience.  Some of those jokes made Correa blush!

There were a lot of local leaders at the fundraiser, which was held at the Delhi Center, in Santa Ana.  They included Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido and Assemblyman Jose Solorio.  Solorio’s colleague, Assemblyman Hector De La Torre, drove down from Bellflower to support Correa and also to campaign for Insurance Commissioner.

Attendees were served Mexican street-style tacos and a buffet of Asian food.  By the time we arrived, the Asian food was gone but the tacos were terrific.  Drinks served included sodas, beer and a selection of wine.

Here are some more pictures to enjoy:

One thought on “Senator Lou Correa’s Taste of OC fundraiser was a big success!”
  1. Paul Rodriguez’s “serious” humor was enlightening as he shared his views and the strategic necessity of a sound farming/water bill.

    Also, it was a privilege to have State Senator Lou Correa honoring the Veterans in general and in particular the Silver Star recipients (third highest honor from the Congressional Medal of Honor; Eusebio Perez WWII-Army; Antonio Mendez WWII-Army; Frank Ramirez Korea-Army, all members of UMAVA (United Mexican American Veterans Association) of OC. UMAVA meets every third Saturday from 9-11AM at the American Legion 143 S. Lemon st, Orange, CA.
