Developer/puppet master Suncal and it's dancing marionettes (councilmembers Kring, Galloway and Hernandez) had announced that their pro housing / anti vacation destination resort initiative would bipass voter petition signatures - and simply muscle in their initiative on the ballot without qualifying it.
The three self-serving councilmembers apparently received surging public condemnation, and are now thinking about making an effort to garner thousands of sigs as Soar/Disney did with their Resort District Preservation Initiative. I do believe that Suncal and fiends can now kiss their initiative goodbye. They are finally starting to get the picture that there is little support for it. Resort supporters in attendance at the October 23rd Anaheim City Hall meeting should be enough to make the three councilmembers fall harder than a giant sequoia tree. Timberrrrrrrrrrrr!
SOAR Alert: BACKROOM DEAL FALLING APART .
BACKROOM DEAL FALLING APART
Suncal Withdraws Request
for City Council Shortcut!
Public outrage may have killed the "backroom deal' between developer Suncal and three members of the Anaheim City Council.
For months the developer has threatened to use three city council members - Lucille Kring, Laurie Galloway and Bob Hernandez - to put an anti-tourism initiative on the ballot WITHOUT VOTER SIGNATURES. That initiative would have NULLIFIED the SOAR "Resort District Preservation Initiative" and adopted new, anti-tourism laws in Anaheim. All three council members indicated support for the idea.
SOAR has led the effort to publicly expose this backroom deal and pressure city council members to abandon this anti-tourism measure.
Today it was revealed that Suncal has requested that the city abandon consideration of this initiative. In a letter filled with anti-Walt Disney Company propaganda (the letter is below), the developer's front group indicated it would abandon efforts to have the council place the measure on the ballot - and would instead attempt to collect signatures. It remains to be seen whether that will occur.
SOAR ASKS KRING, GALLOWAY, HERNANDEZ TO FORMALLY DISAVOW ANTI-TOURISM PROPOSAL
On Tuesday night, October 23, SOAR committee members will ask the three council members to FORMALLY disavow any future efforts to place this anti-tourism measure on the ballot or to enact it into law without an election. Please join us at this critical city council meeting!
