This came over the transom today from Councilwoman Lucille Kring:
To My Dear Friends,
A great big thank you for all your support for my campaign for Mayor. We all knew it would be a huge mountain to climb but we gave it all we could. The results were disappointing, but I’m still on council and we still have the majority.
I believe Measure L to support single member district elections and had $400,000 from around the country funding it had a great deal to do with the outcome. The Mayor and I were on opposite sides of this issue. And it won overwhelmingly.
I will never forget all the wonderful Anaheim residents I met during the 5 1/2 months I walked precincts. They were warm, caring and loved the city. Many offered me water, soda or just come in and cool off. Some weekends the temperature was over 100 degrees.
Seeing the city from the perspective of walking is very different from driving around. You see the needs of certain areas. I will be working on those issues when I get back to work.
Again, it was a wonderful experience. And the best part was all the support I received from old friends and new ones I met during the campaign. I will treasure the trust you had in me to lead Anaheim forward.
I wish each and everyone one of you’re a truly Happy Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
May God bless you for all you do for our great city.
