In his ballot argument for by-district council elections, Mayor Tom Tait goes on and on repeatedly that this measure is about “electing a council member from your neighborhood.”

Mayor Tait put his money where his mouth is. As a local political observer said to ,me, he believes so strongly in “electing a council member from your neighborhood” that he recruited his neighbor down the street to run for City Council!

After months of searching for a second council candidate to unseat Council members Kris Murray and Gail Eastman, it says a lot that the best the Mayor could come up with is an unknown lawyer, with little or no discernible community involvement, who lives a few doors away and has only a few weeks to introduce himself to Anaheim voters.
