Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido earns at least $81,952.68 in
stipends and benefits from his memberships on public boards, likely
making him the highest-paid city council member in Orange
County.

Pulido has put together a well-oiled political operation in Santa
Ana. But in the year of the Bell scandal, his latest challenger is
banking on the public taking a more skeptical view of the Pulido
machine.
