The technical aspects of the Santa Ana political process will be presented by Maria Huizar, Clerk of the Santa Ana City Council. She will discuss the intriguing history of why we elect our local Santa Ana council representatives with a city-wide vote and will explain the term limit rules that Santa Ana currently has in place.

“We believe that Santa Ana residents have the right to be familiar with the inner- workings of their city government and the issues their city is facing. Many residents do not understand the current election process in our city and we want to help them comprehend its history, benefits and challenges”, explains Connie Hamilton, Chairperson of Connect-to-Council.
