Larry Larsen’s Laughable J’Accuse

Larry Larsen is a member of the Anaheim Citizen’s Advisory Committee, to which he was appointed last year by Councilwoman Lorri Galloway (not by Tom Tait, as Gabriel San Roman of the OC Weekly erroneously reported). I’ve attended most of the CAC meetings, which he usually sits through, sphinx-like, with the exception of using the beginning of the meeting to state how ...

Why Did Tom Tait Appoint A Liberal Transplant To Council Elections Committee?

Anaheim Insider here. Reading Matt Cunningham’s coverage of the Anaheim Citizens Advisory Committee process ought to be an eye-opener for anyone concerned about the future of our city.

I eventually came to the opinion she was almost certainly coordinating with the left-wing coalition, ...

Representation-by-Race At Heart Of ACLU’s Council Districts Lawsuit

When you boil it down, the ACLU’s attempt to litigate the City of Anaheim into replacing the at-large system of electing the city council with single-member council districts is really about race; specifically classifying citizens on the basis of their race and designing a system of representation that is based on race. The ACLU alleges the current system violates the California ...
