“From the beginning, Jordan Brandman has fought to grow our local economy, create good jobs to support Anaheim residents, and protect the dignity of our working people,” said Ernesto Medrano, Council Representative at the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council.

Rick Cheatham, President of Anaheim Firefighters Association Local 2899, explained, “Restoring public safety services for all residents has been a key priority. Thanks to Councilmember Brandman and the City Council, we’ve been able to hire new firefighters, build a new fire station, and improve emergency response times across the city.”

Reflecting this broad base of support throughout the Council District 3 and the City of Anaheim, Brandman announced that he had raised more than $153,000 to put toward his reelection in the first reporting period of 2016. “I have been humbled by the unwavering support we’ve gathered for reelection,” Brandman said. “I believe it’s based in all the hard work this broad, representative coalition has done over the last four years for the people of Anaheim. I’m ready to take that support and talk to every single voter in Council District 3 between now and Election Day.”
