Judges Issues Final Ruling In Favor Of GardenWalk Hotels Agreement

OC Superior Court Judge David McEachen has ruled against a left-wing activist group’s lawsuit against Anaheim’s economic assistance agreement (EAA) with the GardenWalk Hotels project. As we reported two weeks ago, Judge McEachen issued a tentative ruling against Orange County Communities Organized for Responsible Development (OCCORD), the union-funded progressive advocacy group that in 2013 filed a pretty flimsy lawsuit seeking ...

The Left continues to pour money into its effort to change the rules of how the Anaheim City Council is elected in order to produce elections results more to their liking, i.e. the election of left-of-center councilmembers to adopt left-of-center policies.

With An Eye On Unionizing More Hotel Workers, UNITE-HERE Pours More Money Into Campaign for By-District Elections

Of the thousands of hotel workers in the Anaheim Resort, only those at a few hotels are actually paying dues into UNITE-HERE Local 11 coffers. UNITE-HERE would love to change that, and to that end has been one of the main forces behind the push to change Anaheim City Council elections from at-large to by-district. Yesterday, UNITE-HERE Local 11 poured ...

Militant Union “UNITE-HERE” Puts $25,000 Into Measure L Campaign for By-District Council Elections

The campaign for by-district council elections has received another big union check: UNITE-HERE Local 11 contributed $25,000 to the Committee for District Elections, which is the “Yes on Measure L” campaign.  Who does UNITE-HERE Local 11 represent? Hotel workers (and food service employees). Of what does Anaheim have thousands? Non-unionized hotel workers that UNITE-HERE not only wants, but needs as members.  ...

Dark Money and San Francisco Bay Area Dollars Sole Financial Support for By-District Elections Campaign

Take a gander at the campaign finance report filed by the campaign to carve Anaheim into single-member council districts. Two things jump out beside the $101,100 in contributions: 93% of that total is the “dark money” hated by the progressives running this campaign  and not a penny of it comes from Anaheim – most is from Northern California. The biggest ...

Anaheim in Wonderland: Left-Wing Groups Organizing Rally for Single-Member Council Districts, Featuring Mayor Tait

One talking point made by advocates of single-member council districts for Anaheim is that is it not a political project of the Left – notwithstanding the fact that the organizational and political heft behind the push for council districts is coming from a coalition of left-wing political organizations and figures such as OCCORD, UNITE-HERE, the Democratic Party of Orange County, ...

ACLU Goes Fishing; Demands Anaheim Turn Over Huge Trove of Documents, Emails and Texts

The ACLU is demanding the city turn over a trove of documents, voice-mails e-mails, and text messages – both official and personal — from a small army of current and former councilmembers, staff, city commission appointees and private citizens, often pertaining to circumstances, events or issues not even tangentially related to “racially-polarized voting.” It’s sort of like litigation carpet bombing, and ...

Call For Prosecuting Councilmembers Puts Some OCCORD Directors In Conflicting Positions

An interesting aspect of OCCORD calling on the state Attorney General and the OC District Attorney to prosecute all four members of Anaheim City Council for imaginary violations is it puts some members of the OCCORD Board of Directors at political odds with themselves. OCCORD is the political offspring of UNITE-HERE. Unions provide OCCORD with funding, and at least 40% ...
