Position Papers
Solving Santa Ana's Budget Crisis
The City of Santa Ana is $28 million in debt. Our current City Council appears to have no answers for this fiscal disaster.
Public Safety
Crime is out of control in Santa Ana, with daily shootings, carjackings, and graffiti. We CAN get control of crime, but not by doing business as usual.
Why does Santa Ana have only one Library?
Santa Ana has only one Public Library - why is that? Most of our neighbors have as many as four libraries! We need to open more local libraries in order to help our youth.
