One would reason that Councilmembers Kring, Hernandez and Galloway's allegiance would be to the 21,000 Anaheim residents that signed petitions to qualify a referemdum against high-density housing in the Anaheim Resort Area. Will the three turn their respective noses up in the face of the public's interest in favor of the special interests of SunCal and other housing developers?
Following the voters decision to qualify the referendum around two-months ago, the three rogue councilmembers have delayed voting in favor of placing the item on the ballot (as required by law) three times. They appear determined to hem DLR in so as to prevent it from expanding - and to prevent voters from having a voice on the issue.
Word is that they are conspiring with SunCal to place their pro-residential (anti-resort) petition on the ballot - in spite of the fact that it failed to gain enough signatures from voters to qualify. Just who do they serve? I certainly hope that Anaheim voters replace each of these disloyal clowns with true representatives as they come up for re-election.
On August 21st, the City Council will once again vote whether to honor the people's desire to have the voter approved referendum placed on the ballot. Kudos to Mayor Kurt Pringle and Councilman Harry Sidhu who have fought for the long-term economic interests of Anaheim and it's residents. After all, 54% of the City's revenue to pay for public services (etc.) is generated by Disney and the Anaheim Resort District (less than 5% of Anaheim's land mass).
