Santa Ana City Council, Remove Claudia Alvarez as Mayor Pro-Tem and ask for her resignation.

      Santa Ana, CA

The people of Santa Ana have enjoyed an antagonistic and bullying relationship with the Santa Ana Mayor Pro-Tem Alvarez for many years. On Aug. 24, 2011 Alvarez made clear that she's also an anti-Semite focused on dividing our community and citizens by race, ethnicity, creed and faith.

When Claudia Alvarez compared a Jewish property owner to Hitler and accused him of ethnic cleansing she no longer represents me as a citizen of Santa Ana.

Furthermore, the apology offered by Alvarez is weak, insincere and does not make clear her views on the Jewish faith and people.

The council must act by removing her appointment of Mayor Pro-Tem and asking for her resignation from council. The rest of the City Council has no choice but to act to correct this egregious, embarrassing behavior of their governing body.

      The Councilmember has not responded to our letter. Councilmember Alvarez's unwillingness to go beyond Thursday's half-hearted apology highlights her lack of understanding about the tremendous impact of her comments. This dearth of sensitivity...

      for moral support because I am not a registered voter in Santa Ana. Our leaders must be above reproach and must think about the consequences of their words. They also must own and accept responsibility for their actions.

      I have been personally violated by Ms. Claudia Alvarez. In 2008, she was the prosecutor in a DV case and I was the victim. The case went to trial and the woman NEVER said a word to me until I took the stand. The PD was so afraid of her, I had to ask the Judge if I had to answer her demeaning, deceptive and career-motivated questions. The defendant was Hispanic, I am Caucasian...not that it means anything to this villain against justice. Who was she seeking justice for? Yes, the woman is a racist.

      If this was the first time Claudia had abused her power I wouldn't be asking for her resignation but she needs to understand that it is a privilage to represent the City. She has lied in many occasions to get her way, disrespected and intimidated many people, and now ashamed the Hispanic community with her ignorant/racists comments. As Hispanic, I don't want Claudia to represent me or my family. She needs to be removed from the City Council immediately.

      She said and I quote, "I did let my emotions take the best of me." The point is, this woman OFFENDED someone and admitted to the above quote. Is this who we want representing our city?
