Anaheim Councilman Jordan Brandman is holding a debt-retirement fundraiser next week:

Jordan 12-13 fundraiser


Brandman isn’t up for re-election until 2016, but being a smart politico, he isn’t waiting until 2015 to start gearing up and is moving now to clear the decks of debt in order to have a large war-chest on hand to make him a prohibitive favorite for re-election, regardless of the council election system in place at that time.
