Santa Ana Council members Cecilia Iglesias (R) is now facing a recall vote by a five signature margin. Petitioners handed in 16000 signatures, got 10,870 and needed 10865.
There was also an attempt to recall Councilman Juan Villegas (I), though that seems to have failed. The recall effort is backed by the police union, over their votes on how to spend a $25 million sales tax. The two voted to spend it on neighborhood improvements. The council approved a police raise.
