Incumbent Mayor Tom Tait is seeking re-election to a second term, and former Councilwoman Lorri Galloway has also announced she will be a candidate for mayor.

Most of the host committee names are no surprise; for example, Mayor Pro Tem Gail Eastman, who was pushed from the OCTA Board of Directors by Tait without explanation. What is noteworthy is the name of conservative Republican Assemblyman Don Wagner.

One potential wrinkle: the Anaheim Charter Review Committee has recommended changed the mayoral term from four to two years. If approved by the City Council, this would be one of the charter amendments on the June 2014 ballot – and if the voters approve that change, then the mayoral candidate will be running for a two- rather than four-year term.


  1. So Mr. Wagner presumably supports public sector unions just like candidate Kring… Hello primary challenge.

  2. Who is Kerry Condon, Matt? Why would does he support candidates? Good grief, be a Republican!

    Daniel, I am a Republican. What you need to be is logical and rational in your arguments.

    Tom Tait has been cheered on and supported by left-wing activists like greg Diamond and Vern Nelson, and left-wing organizations like OCCORD. Does that make Tom a left-winger? By your reasoning, it does.

    In 2012, Tom Tait endorsed OCEA board member and paycheck protection foe John Leos and worked very, very hard to elect him to the Anaheim City Council. Does that make Tom pro-OCEA and anti-paycheck protection? By your reasoning, it does.

    Does Tom Tait’s support mean that government union activist John Leos support’s Tait’s pension reform initiative? By your reasoning, it does.

    But the truth is those conclusions — based on the reasoning you apply in your comments here — are demonstrably false.

    Daniel, I would encourage you to think before you leap. Think your claims all the way through before you make them. I think you are smarter than the things you say here.

  4. Matt-

    In 2010, the police union supported Tait for mayor – was that good or was that bad?!?!?

    Was Tait bad then and good now or good then and bad now?

    OR maybe it says that they supported Tait in 2010 when he articulated one set of views and now they have changed their minds and support a stronger candidate on public safety, when Tait changed his position on public safety issues.
