I think it is a disgrace how few people take the time to vote. However, I think it is a far, far greater disgrace that now those very people who volunteer on commissions and committees and get involved with the activities of this city are in jeopardy of losing six of their votes! Our current council manager system is a good one. Certainly not every one agrees or supports each individual council member on every issue, but voting for Measure C is just cutting off your nose to spite your face.

The Mexican government has announced that it will remove Consul Luis Miguel Ortiz Haro from Santa Ana, provoking ire among community leaders who view him as an outspoken and unbending advocate for immigrants in Orange County. Community leaders are collecting signatures to petition for his reinstatement and planning a trip to Mexico City to speak with government officials. They are also planning to protest when Mexico President Felipe Calderon visits Los Angeles next month.

These days, City Councilman Miguel Angel Pulido doesn't rile easily. Whether he is working in his eighth-floor City Hall office or meeting a constituent at a Taco Bell table next door to his family's muffler shop, Pulido is a different man, by his own admission, than the young man who once railed against City Hall. Pulido, 33, is not the kind of politician many voters expected when they elected him three years ago.

City officials will file a lawsuit this morning against the Orange County Transportation Authority and will file an injunction this afternoon in an attempt to block the sale of a 31-acre lot for use as a bus maintenance yard. The City Council authorized the action during a special closed-session meeting Wednesday, citing the OCTA's failure to complete a mandatory environmental review of plans for a maintenance yard in one of the last undeveloped lots in the Santa Ana Empowerment Zone.

A series of public meetings to discuss proposed changes in the city's government was launched Monday with a question-and-answer session in which former Anaheim Mayor Bill Thom described Santa Ana's form of government as "Neanderthal." Thom, one of the county's first popularly elected mayors, and Stan Oftelie, executive director of the county Transportation Commission, sat in as non-residents providing experienced opinions on local government.

"Neighborhood" is becoming a magic word in Santa Ana politics. Once dedicated only to block parties and crime watches, neighborhood associations are steadily gaining a powerful foothold at City Hall, where lobbying from such organizations has become one of the most effective ways to get things done in the county's largest city. "It's pure and simple, it's honest politics," said Guy Ball, a former co-chairman for Wilshire Square, one of the city's 31 neighborhood associations.

Former City Council member Patricia McGuigan was chosen Monday to replace Councilman Richards L. Norton, who recently resigned because of health problems. McGuigan was chosen by a 5-1 vote from eight applicants who gave short speeches before the council Monday afternoon. McGuigan, 59, was elected to the council in 1981 and served several terms until 1992, including a stint as vice-mayor.

Bowing to public pressure, the Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday that Mayor Miguel A. Pulido Jr. will give his state of the city speech in Santa Ana after all, not Irvine. The new site will be the Turnip Rose banquet room. The date, time and $25 price tag will remain the same. "Everyone's focusing on the location and not the message," chamber President Mike Metzler said, "and that's not what we want."

Opposing factions in the recent dispute over Measure C, a ballot initiative to restructure Santa Ana's government, met privately Monday night seeking to reconcile their differences. Measure C, which lost by only 282 votes out of several thousand in the June 3 election, called for election of city councilmen by ward rather than citywide and for election of the mayor by the voters rather than by the councilmen.

Transportation officials said Saturday they plan to slash the length of Orange County's proposed light rail system by more than half, dropping a north county leg designed to serve Disneyland and Edison Field from the initial route. The move marks a dramatic scaling back from the 27-mile system unveiled just weeks ago that was to link downtown Fullerton in the north with Anaheim's entertainment corridor, Santa Ana's government center, South Coast Plaza and the Irvine Spectrum business complex.
