Former Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle has contacted Councilman Jordan Brandman to let him know he has decided to decline Brandman’s appointment of him to the Charter Review Committee, citing time and business commitments.
That’s a shame, because Curt would have been a true asset to the CRC, given his experience as mayor, knowledge of the charter and past experience in amending it, not mention sound judgment and intelligence.
The Voice of OC was quick to manifest its Pringle-obsession with this article, which veered quickly into its pet topics of claiming members of this temporary, advisory committee should be required to complete financial disclosure forms. This is a feeble argument for a proposal that is a not-even-thinly-veiled political ploy directed at Curt Pringle; more on why it is a bad and arbitrary idea later.
The article also wrings its figurative hands that no Latinos were among the five CRC appointees (while failing to note that only 6 of the 36 applicants were Latinos. ore “representation” requires that individuals step up and “represent.”)
