The Charter Review Committee held its second meeting last night in the Anaheim City Council chambers.

City Attorney Michael Houston briefed them on the Brown Act. The facilitator hired by the city, Raphe Sonenshein, spoke to them about what to expect from the process based on his experiences providing the same service to other charter review committees, and led them on a quick overview of the Anaheim City Charter (which he characterized as well done).

The committee also elected its chairman and vice chairman. Craig Farrow nominated Todd Ament (president/CEO of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce) for chairman, and since there were no other nominations for that post, he was elected unanimously.

Todd Ament nominated Ernesto Medrano (political director for OC’s Teamsters local) for vice chairman. Again, there were no other nominations and Medrano was unanimously elected.
