This week on PBS SoCaL, we delve into the heated debate over what Anaheim residents should give to keep the Angels in their city.

Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait calls the council majority’s approach a giveaway, while city consultant Charles Black says concessions were key to keeping the team focused on negotiations instead of moving.

We also discuss:

  • County supervisors tell the grand jury they’re handling harassment issues perfectly, in the aftermath of felony sex charges against former county executive Carlos Bustamante.
  • Irvine City Council members argue over whether the city should seek a better rebate plan for taxpayers, who have been massively overpaying for fire services.

Voice of OC’s weekly news segments are broadcast on PBS SoCaL Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 p.m.
