Mamacheeks-greed-costume-768x1024According to Gabriel San Roman of the OC Weekly, Donna Acevedo says she will run for Anaheim City Council this year:

“I was already thinking about running before,” the lifelong Anaheim resident tells the Weekly, “but the Manuel Diaz verdict yesterday made me want to do it even more.”

Acevedo has cut a public profile as a political activist since the fatal July 12 shooting of her son Joel, who was a passenger in a stolen car that led Anaheim police on a car chase; he then fled the vehicle and was shot when, according to police, he pulled a gun and was shot by Officer Kelly Phillips ( who was subsequently cleared by the District Attorney’s office).

San Roman reports she has pulled papers to run, although nothing is yet posted on the Anaheim City Clerk’s website.
