    1. The results are “unofficial”…. the passage states that the results will be certified Dec 11, 2012

  1. It would be nice to have the voters heard.

    This crap about quiting and giving up first, before all the votes are counted is a slap in the face to all of those who vote.

  2. Voted for Mr. Reyna. Thank god Karina didn’t win. This would have been a bad choice for ward #5 if she won. Previously met her and found her to be dishonest and overall a very bad businesswoman. Not a good mixture to have someone as her to represent you. As had been said many times before “most if not all people that get into politics turn out to be crooked”. Don’t be fooled folks by her looks.

  3. Sounds like Concerned S.A. resident got turned down for a date! I found Ms. Onofre to be bright, energetic, and ready to serve. Look for her to win a seat on the school board in two years all you haters.

    1. We can do without your childish comments here Chicano Power. We can also tell by your name on where you stand. Getting back to the subject on hand, hopefully we don’t see anymore of her political aspirations to materialize either in the City Council or Santa Ana Board. Remember Nativo? No thanks!
      We are a group of residents and business owners in Santa Ana who want to make Orange County’s seat a better place to live, work and visit.

      Our mission is to bring together neighborhoods, businesses, political affiliations and ethnicities to encourage civic participation and promote and advocate for efficient, transparent, accountable and ethical governance by the elected and administrative officials of the city of Santa Ana

  4. Nobody here is going to be fooled by Karina’s looks. She should have changed her name to Karina Amezcua though. And she could have ran as a member of the New Santa Ana International Socialist Party.

  5. Good point Mateo. In two years every Amezcua on Facebook will be a candidate in Santa Ana and the rest of those interested in politics will also be running with the name Amezcua.

    Stefano Rocco Amezcua for Mayor in 2014!
