Trevor O’Neil Announces Run For Mayor of Anaheim

Mayor Pro Tem Trevor O’Neil announced his campaign for Mayor of Anaheim today. He has served as acting Mayor of Anaheim since May, during which time he has maintained a balanced budget, led the way toward restoring public trust in City government, and promoted economic development policies that have benefited all Anaheim residents.

“I am running for Mayor to represent the interests of everyone in Anaheim from West Anaheim to Downtown, to the Colony and the Hills. The focus should not only be on big businesses, but on how our residents and neighborhoods benefit from what these industries bring to our city,” said O’Neil.

“In order to improve the quality of life for each and every neighborhood throughout our city, I will put that economic benefit to work towards increased community investment, stronger public safety, and expanded programs for our youth,” continued O’Neil.

Mayor Pro Tem O’Neil has lived in Anaheim for over 25 years and sent his children to public schools in the city. A small businessman who runs a company providing home health care services for senior citizens, the disabled, and other vulnerable individuals, Trevor was elected to the City Council four years ago. On the City Council, he’s helped prioritize public safety, address homelessness, improve parks and library services, and enhance neighborhood investments.

“Trevor O’Neil is the best candidate to represent the people of Anaheim as Mayor,” said Assemblyman Phillip Chen, who graduated from high school in Anaheim and previously worked as a healthcare policy advisor. “Trevor O’Neil’s small business background in healthcare gives him the insight to represent the thousands of working Anaheim families while also understanding what it takes to create jobs and hold government accountable.”

“Anaheim would be well-served by electing Trevor O’Neil to represent the interests of the entire city as Mayor,” said Assemblyman Steven Choi, Ph.D. “Trevor O’Neil is a community leader who listens to all voices and will enhance roads, parks, and public safety in Anaheim.”

Mayor Pro Tem Trevor O’Neil represents Anaheim on the Boards of the Transportation Corridor Agency, Association of California Cities-Orange County, Orange County Council of Governments, and Southern California Association of Governments. He is also an active community leader, serving as Chairman on the Board of Directors of the Orange County Taxpayers Association and supporting the Anaheim Boys and Girls Club. He is also a former Anaheim City Commissioner and school district bond oversight committee vice chairman.

  1. He has my vote if he gets 39 Commons built, not just the townhomes. Stanton passed west Anaheim up a long time ago with progress. We cant even get Beach blvd started. Not even a decent sign, or announcement of which business is coming in. How many years has it been? I forget.

    I think Trevor will be good, but show west anaheim that you are focusing on district 1.
    And you will have vwry faithful followers.

    • I do agree with you , west Anaheim is way behind Buena Park , the only thing we see homeless , prostitution, and
      Police helicopter flying over this area many times per day . I know police are doing best job they can , but when they catch those criminals most likely next day are out on the streets again

  2. Westside residents

    Regarding item 17 on this weeks agenda, if anyone is interested:
    I love and often eat middle eastern food. That being said, item 17 wants to discriminate all other businesses by only recognizing one “Arabic” community if you designate Brookhurst street as little Arabia. 

    The well intended council that decided to name Little Saigon squeezed out every other ethnic business and vietnamese businesses contol the area now.  I also love vietnamese food, but…

    no more Salvatores italian restaurant, no more Jolly Knight restaurant, or great mexican restaurants, they all exited to accomodate the new asian community. 

    If you desiginate another culture community, you will descriminate against the others.

    I respectfully ask you to leave businesses alone, let the mom and pop places of all nationalities decide where they want to open their businesses. Allow the natural flow of entrepreneurs to grow our community, and not the dictatorship of Arabic business communities from other cities come here and decide this is where they see our future.

    Again, we ask you please consider what our community wants.

    Thank you.
