The choice of guest speaker makes it pretty clear Kring’s campaign plans to make public safety a key issue of differentiation between herself and Mayor Tom Tait. The anti-police agitators who regular attend city council meetings to denounce Anaheim police officers as racist murders have also been vocal supporters of the mayor’s. Since that view of the police is diametrically opposed to how the vast majority of Anaheim voters see their police officers, it’s not exactly going out on a limb to guess Kring’s campaign or a supportive IE committee) will draw that contrast in the mail.
