Anaheim Seeks to Gag Council Members

The Anaheim City Council on Tuesday night could further restrict a Councilmember’s ability to speak out on public policy issues by making it tougher to put items on the public agenda. The move comes in the wake of Councilmembers Jose Moreno and Denise Barnes fighting for months to schedule a vote on releasing the Angel Stadium appraisal and along with efforts to create rent control for seniors, both of which were ultimately cut off by the majority.

The Anaheim City Council could decide to release the stadium appraisal after residents have been in the dark for months on the value of the land and the status of negotiations between the Angels and the city for the public 155-acre stadium. Council members also may consider sunlighting any proposal submitted by the Angels.
