Thank You, Mayor Tait

I’ve been informed that Mayor Tait, at last night’s City Selection Committee meeting, nominated his council colleague Gail Eastman to the OCTA Board of Directors, and that she was handily elected.

Those of us who very much want to see an end to the destructive divisions on the Anaheim City Council are relieved and encouraged by Mayor Tait’s extending this big olive branch. It is a signal that the councilmembers who have been at loggerheads, often bitterly, can work together in the common interest of the city. This  is good for the council and the city.

Hopefully, this will become more typical of how the councilmembers operate in the future.

    I concur. I was really happy to see Tom supporting Gail for that seat. I hope there’s more of that to follow, all around.

  2. Before everyone gets too kumbayah over this, remember that last night Tom Tait broke his promise to Buena Park Mayor Fred Smith for the other 4th District seat.

    Fred Smith gave Tait and Anaheim the vote they needed to stop Placentia Councilman Scott Nelson’s attempt to take the seat away in 2011. He was committed to supporting Anaheim this time, too, and did so. Tait voted for Fred during the first two ballots, and then threw him over to vote for Tim Shaw on the third ballot. Fred Smith had not released him from his commitment. These broken promises are becoming a pattern.

  3. Great we nowhave the council woman who thanked God for the Anaheim riots as Mayor Pro Tem.

    find out about this topic. You understand so much its almost hard
    to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that has been written about for a long
    time. Great stuff, just great!
