Three candidate have announced they are running in the May 19 recall vote to replace Santa Ana Council members Cecilia Iglesias (R).
Rancho Santiago Community College District Board Member Nelida Mendoza, Thai Viet Phan and planning commissioner Angie Cano have all entered the replacement race.
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.
Update: Recall will be all mail-in ballot.
