Richardson struggled with Multiple Sclerosis for many years. It is not know yet however if that is what ultimately contributed to his passing. We do know however that he took ill back in February and was even in a coma for quite a time. He came to recently and spent a lot of time calling and reconnecting with his friends, prior to his death.
Richardson’s passing marks the end of an era. He was a congenial fixture in our city for so many years and also at the County of Orange, where he was a Procurement Officer.
Richardson was a Santa Ana City Councilman from 1990-1998. He was elected a few years after Mayor Miguel Pulido came to power and they were close allies and friends for years.
In February 2003, Richardson was elected to the Board of Education following the recall of SAUSD Trustee Nativo Lopez, which made national headlines. Richards received 65% of the votes cast in that election.
