Anaheim Mayoral Race: Now OCEA Turns Its Fire On Lorri Galloway

After spending big money attacking GOP mayoral front runner Harry Sidhu and promoting GOP spoiler candidate Cynthia Ward, the Orange County Employees Association – which represents 16,000 County of Orange employees as well as Anaheim city employees – has turned its guns on another mayoral candidate: former Anaheim Councilmember Lorri Galloway.

Earlier today, the OCEA Independent Expenditure Committee reported spending $31,336 attacking Galloway, a Democrat.  The OCEA has endorsed liberal Democrat Ashleigh Aitken for mayor of Anaheim. The report doesn’t indicate if the $30,000 is for mail, digital ads, cable ads or some combination. It’s enough to at least two city-wide mailers, with change left over for other forms of voter contact.

As a female Democrat, Galloway eats into what would otherwise be a natural bloc of supporters for Aitken (or vice versa). As a two-term former councilmember, Galloway also has better name ID than first-time candidate Aitken.

It’s logical to conclude Galloway is either leading or neck-and-neck with Aitken, and so OCEA is trying to knock Galloway down.

OCEA mail hitting Sidhu and promoting Ward used the California Taxpayer Protection Committee as a vehicle. The attacks on Galloway come directly from the OCEA – indicating they’re targeted at Democrat voters who don’t view government unions negatively.

And so it goes as the union representing Anaheim city employees tries to pick the next mayor.

  2. Someone who knows

    I lived in her ELI HOME. some years ago. Unbenonest to either of us, my Dad and I were paying her for me and my child to live there. When I mentioned to my dad that, he told me HE was paying her, too! He said, “Don’t pay next month”, so I didn’t/ Her solution? Have 2 of her employees bag our stuff up and her husband, Mike Galloway, drove us to a drug infested motel, Beach West Inn (Beach Blvd. and Mc Fadden in Westminster. He paid for a week there. Is this the type of person YOU want for Mayor? I think NOT!!

  3. VOTE HARRY SIDHU, VOTE MITCH CALDWELL. Vote TREVOR ONEILL TURN IT UP DISNEYLAND AND SOAR WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW. Save our Anaheim

  4. Go on Jose Moreno’s Facebook site and see the smoke and mirrors and out and out mistruths. Here is a sampling:

    Join workers, families, and youth as we canvass District 3 to let them know why Dr. Jose Moreno is the best candidate to represent workers in Anaheim.
    REALLY ISN’T HE FOR ALL RESIDENTS NO MATTER WHAT RACE AND IS REPRESENTING THEM?

    District 3 Resident “How do you plan on dealing with this Dr. Moreno. I can’t even stop to get a cup of coffee with my hard earned money without coming across feces of the homeless allowed to camp in the city!! Thanks! This is why I’m wont be voting for you.”

    Another Resident “I’m glad to hear this. I heard a rumor that Dr. Moreno wanted Anaheim to be a sanctuary city.”
    HE ALREADY HAS MADE IT INTO ONE BUT IS AFRAID TO OUT AND OUT TELL THE TRUTH AND CALL IT ONE IN CASE IT COSTS HIM VOTES…. TELL THE TRUTH

    “Dr. Jose F Moreno has been serving the residents of Anaheim for the past two years as Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem. He has fought for our tax dollars to be spe…”
    Moreno and his group spent our money suing the parents who wanted to turn Palm Lane charter.
    He also spent our money “studying and assisting the homeless and nothing has been resolved the problem is worse.

    “A good neighborhood walk today assessing neighborhood street lighting and needs of Sycamore / Philadelphia / Olive St. / Wilhemina neighborhoods and alleyways with our Public Utilities GM Dukku Lee and Fred Barvarz, Transmission and Distribution Manager.”
    NO ONE EVER HAS SEEN HIM DO THIS EXCEPT WHEN HE IS PANDERING FOR VOTES. ACTUALLY HIS DISTRICT HAS NEVER LOOKED WORSE. WHAT A FARCE, GREAT PHOTO OP THOUGH

    Another Resident “This is what I hear— this is what I live with Dr. Moreno. Homeless breaking into our cars, pooping in our driveways, harassing me when I get gas, stealing my paid for drinks right off the counter in Starbucks. When are you gonna put your tax paying cit…See More”
    THIS IS PROOF THAT HIS DISTRICT IS A MESS AND HE DOES NOT CARE WHAT WE HAVE TO LIVE IN OR WITH.

    Another Resident of District 3 ” Dr. Moreno – my kids school is a 2. How do I send my child to a school with a 2 that has a homeless encampment a block away if the transients are not sleeping in front of it? How? I am lucky – I can afford private schooling. What about my neighbors tha…See More”
    JOSE MORENO’S REPLY “Hi Shannon. Our schools are and should not be driven by tests. Our elementary school district is the only district in the U.S. that offers music education to every 5th & 6th grader in our schools. Along with award winning Dual Language programs in 7 sc…See More”
    JOSE MORENO’S STANDARD OF NOT ACTUALLY DOING ANYTHING FOR A CONCERNED RESIDENT IN DISTRICT 3 – HE DOES NOT EVEN ADDRESS HER NEEDS= MEGALOMANIACS BEHAVE MUCH THE SAME WAY

    Jose Moreno post “Join high school students, college students, and graduates who support Dr. Moreno as we talk to voters and let them know why he is the best candidate for the youth of Anaheim and for all communities.”
    AN EXAMPLE OF HOW JOSE MORENO IS INFLUENCING AND USING OUR YOUTH TO CAMPAIGN FOR HIM.
    HOW CAN HE NOT TELL THE TRUTH = OUR SCHOOLS SCORES HAVE NEVER BEEN WORSE. HOW MANY HAVE GONE OR ARE GOING CHARTER. HE IS ACTUALLY FAILING OUR CHILDREN.
    HE DOES NOT SPEND TIME ADDRESSING THE PROBLEMS IN HIS DISTRICT THAT HE WAS ELECTED TO SERVE.

    HE IS NOT DESERVING OF OUR VOTES.

    GO THROUGH HIS SOCIAL MEDIA AND THAT OF HIS COHORTS WHILE YOU CAN AND SEE WHAT HE POSTS AND HOW HE REPLYS.
