I received the email alert below today from the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce. They are clearly standing against the will of the people! Shame on them! Here is the vile message they spammed mail boxes with today:
Action Alert: Don’t Let Them Carve Up Anaheim…
Tonight the Anaheim City Council will vote on whether to put single-member council districts on the June 2014 ballot.
The Anaheim Chamber of Commerce opposes this measure, which is supported by a coalition of radical organizations who want to divide the city into council enclaves — and Anaheim voters would lose the at-large election right they have enjoyed for 156 years: holding all councilmembers accountable by having the opportunity to vote on all council candidates.
Last month, the City Council approved reasonable changes supported by the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce: electing the council from residency-based districts that are voted on at-large, and asking voters to increase the council from 4 to 6 members. These changes would ensure all areas of Anaheim are represented while holding councilmembers accountable to ALL Anaheim voters, and increasing opportunities for Anaheim citizens to serve.
It is urgent that you immediately e-mail our mayor and Councilmembers and ask them to oppose placing single-members.
Your voice must be heard NOW!
Please take a moment to copy and paste our councilmembers’ e-mails address into your e-mail:
Mayor Tom Tait: email@example.com
Mayor Pro Tem Gail Eastman: firstname.lastname@example.org
Councilmember Kris Murray: email@example.com
Councilmember Lucille Kring: firstname.lastname@example.org
Counclimember Jordan Brandman: email@example.com
City Clerk: firstname.lastname@example.org
Let them know you:
Oppose placing single-member council districts on the ballot
Support their June 11 vote to create residency-based council districts that are elected at-large, and to ask voters whether they want to increase the council to 6 members.
A simple message making the above points will be powerful! We need to flood our council’s inbox so we are urging you to take action now to preserve a united Anaheim!
