    Just as Brandman announces in a campaign e-blast that “our strategy is working” and he scored the endorsement of a bunch of public employee unions.

    When does Anaheim get leadership that brags about having spiffed for the CITIZENS?

    From Camp Kleptocracy;

    “Today, I have news from the campaign trail: Our strategy is working.

    I’m proud to announce today that I’ve been endorsed for reelection to the Anaheim City Council from Council District 3 by a broad coalition comprised of organized labor, public employees, public safety officers, and business organizations:
    • AFSCME District Council 36
    • Anaheim Firefighters Association Local 2899
    • Anaheim Municipal Employees Association
    • Anaheim Police Officers PAC
    • IBEW Local 47
    • Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council
    • Orange County Employees Association
    • SEIU United Service Workers West
    • Teamsters Local 952
    • Anaheim Chamber of Commerce PAC
    • Orange County Business Council
    • Support Our Anaheim Resort PAC
    Thanks to your generous support and that of the stakeholders above, we surpassed our fundraising expectations: As of June 30th, our campaign has amassed more than $153,000. These contributions came from a wide variety of individuals and Anaheim stakeholders, and I could not be more humbled and grateful. ”

    Note that nearly none of those organizations represent ANAHEIM RESIDENTS. The Chamber PAC is all about corporate giants, leaving behind the mom and pop shops that are owned by those who choose to work and live in Anaheim. Few public employees live in Anaheim. and thanks to their own demand to create zoning in concrete, the SOAR PAC represents a special interest district entirely devoid of voters.

    “Thanks to your generous support and that of the stakeholders above, we surpasses our fundraising expectations.” Gee, what a coincidence. So did those “stakeholders” named above. Funny how that works.
