Quiz time: which current candidate for mayor of Anaheim published these fulsome words of praise for Disney – defending its contributions to Anaheim and attacking criticism of the 1996 agreement creating the Resort District:
Some highlights from the now-candidate’s staunch pro-Disney advocacy:
“In addition, the City staff that worked that deal, Lisa Stipkovich, Dave Morgan, Joel Ficke, and Tom Wood, are still around. If Disney had broken promises to the people of Anaheim, you bet your sweet bippy that Galloway, Hernandez and Kring would be interrogating their staff, digging this stuff up to bludgeon Disney with right now.”
“You also make it sound like Disney got the City to pay for improvements that only Disney benefits from, but the City gained a benefit with improved rates for using Disney’s stellar credit rating rather than the City’s then in-the-toilet credit rating.”
The answer will be provided tomorrow.
