Subject: CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE DAVID DE LEON RELEASES HIS RESIDENTIAL LEASE AND CHALLENGES HIS OPPONENTS TO DO THE SAME
Santa Ana, CA — To draw a clear distinction between himself and his opponents that moved into Ward 3 in order to run for the vacant City Council seat, Council majority-endorsed candidate David DeLeon is releasing his residential lease to show Santa Ana voters that he has been a Ward 3 resident and voter for more than a few months.
The Voice of OC alleges that challenger Jose Solorio “has been using campaign funds to pay part of the rent for the apartment he’s been living in.”
On October 5, Mr. DeLeon submitted a complaint to the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) asking them to investigate Mr. Solorio’s use of campaign funds to finance his recent move into Ward 3 for political purposes.
“My family and I have lived in our house in Ward 3 for years, not months. It is important that the voters know that our elected representatives have been our actual neighbors and not carpetbaggers. That is why I am releasing my residential lease to the public and I am calling on the other candidates for City Council in Ward 3 to do the same to demonstrate that they have been truly our neighbors.”
David DeLeon is a candidate for Santa Ana City Council – Ward 3. He is the only candidate to have been endorsed by the majority of the City Council and to have been born and raised in Santa Ana.
