Why they can't beat Miguel Pulido - and he will win again this year | New Santa Ana
Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulidos detractors are befuddled about how exactly he keeps on winning, every two years. What they dont understand is that their views dont reflect the views of the residents at large in our city.
Santa Ana is a huge city. The inside baseball and chismoso/gadfly set is fairly small, perhaps a hundred people at most. In 2010, mayoral challenger Alfredo Amezcua lined up a lot of these folks and combined them with the dwindling Usual Suspects. Amezcua spent a quarter million dollars and he thought he had victory in the bag. But you see what he was listening to was an echo chamber and he failed to reach the majority of voters in Santa Ana.

If residents review the campaign reports in the clerk's office, they will find the thousands of dollars in campaign contributions Pulido has received for his mayoral campaigns from lawyers, developers companies,and other special interests in orange county and other states! These contributors expect something in return, they do not make contributions from the goodness of their heart.
An incumbent who has cultivated connections with special interests will always have an advantage over a challenger. That is one reason Pulido as an incumbent always wins. The other reason is voters have to chose between the least of the two evils.Challengers like Martinez and Amezcua are not better alternatives.
When Santa Ana places term limits for the office of mayor and a decent, competent and honest candidate runs for mayor, Pulido will be thrown out of office. And he knows it;that is why he is opposed to mayoral term limits.
