Legal Opposition Dropped In Anaheim Convention Center Expansion Project

Published on February 26, 2015 by in News

By Matt Valdez

A message from the City of Anaheim:

The two groups opposing the Anaheim Convention Center Expansion bond financing have voluntarily dismissed their legal challenge to that financing and their attempts to block the progress of this needed City project. As a result, the litigation challenging the validity of the bonds has been completely terminated.

Last fall, Orange County Superior Court Judge Sherman ruled against plaintiffs Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility (CATER) and the Inland Oversight Committee (IOC) in their legal challenge to the bond financing, concluding that the Anaheim Public Financing Authority acted properly in approving the issuance of up to $300 Million in bonds for this project, which benefits the City, the region and the community. Following that decision, one of the challengers, IOC, appealed the trial court ruling.

In light of the trial court rejecting the legal challenge to the bond financing, on November 5, 2014, the Anaheim Public Financing Authority successfully sold all of the bonds it was planning to issue, evidencing the fact that the bond market agreed that these bonds were valid.

Following that issuance, IOC asked the Court of Appeal to bar the City from spending the bond proceeds while its appeal of Judge …read more

Mobile Youth Programs Enriching Lives Of Young Anaheim Residents

Published on February 24, 2015 by in News

By Matt Valdez

A message from The City of Anaheim:

Children are always on the go, and the City of Anaheim offers two programs that can help parents keep up with the fun. The Bookmobile and Fun on Wheels programs are ways that kids can get involved while boosting creativity and learning.

BOOKMOBILE

Since it began in 1958, the Bookmobile has been a program and beloved community tradition that brings the Library right to you. What began as a 17-foot truck upon its initial launch became a 52-foot tractor trailer in 1994. Today, this clean energy 35-foot bookmobile bus runs on compressed natural gas and follows two different routes throughout the City of Anaheim. At each of our 14 neighborhood stops and five school stops, kids line up for their turn to hop on board and find a book. The program is completely free with a library card, and offers books, magazines, and DVDs for all ages. For more information on the Bookmobile, please click here.

FUN ON WHEELS

Fun on Wheels is a mobile recreation program with two vans that visit different neighborhoods to provide children with homework help, educational activities, arts and …read more

Did Wagner’s campaign collude with an Independent Expenditure Committee?

Don Wagner Collusion

Political candidates are not supposed to in any way communicate with the PACs and individuals who fund Independent Expenditure Committees.  But apparently Don Wagner didn’t get the memo.

Naz Namazi, a former campaign staffer to U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, issued a press release today alleging that Wagner sent out a campaign mailer that was pretty darn similar to one that was paid for by an independent expenditure and sent out in the mail within a day of the Wagner mailer, on February 19 and 20.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, PRESS RELEASE: 2/22/2015

Subject: Man Arrested for Residential Burglary and Theft

Contact : Julia Engen, Commander, 949-724-7025, jengen@cityofirvine.org

IRVINE, CA – Just before 3:00 a.m. Irvine police officers responded to the report of a burglary in progress on Winterfield. Arriving officers spotted the suspect, 19-year-old, Matthew Kozlov of Anaheim Hills, leaving the area. Kozlov fled, running through several neighboring properties and was ultimately found hiding in a nearby backyard and was arrested without incident.

Officers believe Kozlov ransacked and stole items from a vehicle parked inside the victim’s garage. They also believe he gained entry to the garage by using a garage door opener stolen from the victim’s second car parked in the driveway of the location. At the time of his arrest, stolen property was recovered from at least three additional thefts from vehicles on Winterfield, Copperleaf and Windarbor. In each case, the stolen property was removed from unlocked vehicles. Read more…
