AD-69 canddiate and current OC Clerk Recorder Tom Daly snags a significant endorsement from the Anaheim Neighborhood Association.  What makes this endorsement a big deal is this group is very good at getting to the polls and the get out the vote effort is critical for the five candidates vying for the top 2 spots.

Daly’s campaign has also been endorsed by many longtime Anaheim residents, community leaders, business leaders, and elected officials, including Anaheim Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Todd Ament, the Support Our Anaheim Resort (S.O.A.R.) organization, Anaheim City Councilwoman Gail Eastman, Anaheim Union High School District Board Members Jordan Brandman and Anna Piercy, and Anaheim City Elementary School District Board Member James Vanderbilt.
