Hat tip to Anaheim Blog and the OJ Blog with news that the People’s Map was re-instated unanimously last night by the Anaheim City Council and the sequencing giving one Latino majority seat in District 3 will be part of the 2016 elections.
While District 2 was left off the election cycle for this November, Council member James Vanderbilt has already moved into that district giving District 2 an elected at-large member of the council. One of the districts, to be selected randomly, will be up for election in 2018.
Now that the sequencing and map is settled, watch for an announcement shortly from Dr. Jose Moreno that he’s a candidate for the District 3 seat. Gail Eastman announced she was running for Anaheim city council months ago. Moreno “won” District 3 over Eastman in 2014 by about 150 votes; both lost bids to be elected to the city council.
