Mayor Miguel Pulido’s January, 2015 Newsletter

Pulido Newsletter

Mayor Miguel Pulido’s January, 2015 Newsletter

COMMITMENT TO PUBLIC SAFETY: OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY

The City recently received a $1.2 million federal Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant to hire 10 new police officers. The Santa Ana Police Department has received national attention for its success in reducing crime using community oriented policing philosophies. In 2009, the City received its first federal COPS grant. These monies allowed the city to invest in smart technologies that spurred efficiencies and improved the effectiveness of our police personnel. The Department focused on expanding partnerships with both the local residents and community organizations as well as other law enforcement agencies. Task forces were established in specific neighborhoods to work with property owners to eliminate visual blight and to bring in additional resources from non-profits and other city departments. These efforts helped prevent criminal activity from occurring and dramatically improved the quality of life in our neighborhoods. Read more…

The OC Register endorses Mayor Miguel Pulido

Pulido with the police

The Orange County Register has endorsed Mayor Miguel Pulido!

Here is their op-ed announcing their support for Pulido:

Editorial: Pulido for mayor in Santa Ana

Santa Ana, unfortunately, is not without its share of problems. But it is also a city, when comparing the problems of today to those of yesteryear, which has made great strides. The city now rests on the cusp of a potential renaissance, and it will need strong leadership to continue down the path of making Santa Ana the healthy and vibrant community it should be.

Mayor Miguel Pulido remembers the tough times. In an interview with the Register Editorial Board he recalled a story from his first electoral run, when a constituent invited him into his house so he could show the then-council candidate the bricks the homeowner lined his walls with to protect his family from stray bullets.

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. Read more…
