A LiberalOC exclusive: Anaheim City Council member Jordan Brandman has pulled out of the race for Congress in CD-46. Brandman announced the news in a letter to supporters this afternoon.
Here’s a copy of the letter:
JORDAN BRANDMAN COUNCIL MEMBER, CITY OF ANAHEIM
As my good friend and strong supporter, I wanted to let you know that I have decided to end my campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives.
I have not come to my decision easily. I have put my heart and soul into this campaign over the last few months, and I feel that our hard work has been paying off. Our fundraising, endorsements, and strong community support have been impressive and, quite frankly, very humbling.
However, after much deliberation with my family, friends, and supporters, I have decided that there are still a great many things I would like to help accomplish for the residents of Anaheim.
For the remainder of my term on the Anaheim City Council, I look forward to bolstering critical infrastructure, helping our families feel safer in their neighborhoods, and successfully implementing the City’s new city council district plan. These efforts and their outcome will be fundamental to deciding what kind of city Anaheim becomes over the next few decades, and I consider it a privilege to represent you as we work on them together.
Running for Congress has been an honor. I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities I have had to meet many new friends and listen to residents stories of challenge and triumph.
I look forward to continuing these conversations and working with you to move our community forward.
Thank you for your support. I am proud to count you as my friend. Best wishes and happy holidays to you and your family.
