Alejandra Molina is a reporter at The Orange County Register where she has covered city government, transportation, crime and breaking news. She began writing for the Register in 2006, covering communities in South Orange County. While at that post, she wrote about the lack of property spaces for places of worship, the conflicts between day laborers’ rights to seek employment and city ordinances that sought to restrict the workers, and the controversy and following of Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren. As a transportation reporter, she covered how bus service cuts affected low-income riders and enjoyed exploring how bicyclists and pedestrians fit into Orange County’s car-centric lifestyle. Covering crime and breaking news, she was part of the team that covered the Anaheim riots in the summer of 2012. Alejandra was born in Huntington Park and raised in El Monte and Pomona. She graduated with a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of La Verne.
