UPDATED: Does Anaheim “Want to Create…Special-Interest districts and Become like Los Angeles or Chicago?”

Orwellian WardWhich Anaheim politico had this to say about single-member council districts?:

“Do we want to create a lot of special-interest districts and become like Los Angeles or Chicago? You’re going to have people saying, ‘Hey, you got a substation, I want a park for my area.’  Districts will create pork, just like Washington, but on a smaller scale.”

No-prize for the first correct guess.

UPDATED 5/22/14: and the correct answer is….Cynthia Ward!

That’s right – the same Cynthia Ward who now thinks that Anaheim needs single-member council districts, was saying exactly the opposite in late 2012.

“But how can this be?” you may ask. After all, Cynthia champions by-district elections.

But should we really be surprised? After all, one of the few constants about Mrs. Ward is the inconstancy of her opinions, which have a shelf live of 6-18 months. As changeable as her opinions are, she holds each of them with absolute certainty — even when they are diametrically opposed to her previous stance, which was also held with absolute certainty.

    Anaheim H.O.M.E. = 1 member. CATER = 2 members plus a hired corp. counsel hoping to get paid by taxpayers from a legal settlement.

    We’ll the real question is has she changed her mind on districting or does she still feel the way she did in 2012?
