As Anaheim Blog has noted, the OCEA and other government unions are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to put John Leos on the Anaheim City Council. Leos is a county employee who is also an OCEA shop steward, and served on the board of directors for both the OCEA and the OCEA political action committee until earlier this year.
Leos’ own fundraising has been worse than it was two years — and it was anemic then. If he manages to get elected, it will be entirely due to the ocean of money the government unions are pouring into this race.
Chris Emami has posted some of the mailers being put out by the OCEA here, here and here.
