Anaheim, CA—Bill Dalati, Chair of the Anaheim Planning Commission and a community activist has endorsed Ashleigh Aitken for Mayor of Anaheim.

“Ashleigh has the experience to help Anaheim solve our city’s growing challenges around recruiting new businesses and building affordable housing while protecting the character of our neighborhoods,” said Bill Dalati, Chair of the Anaheim Planning Commission.

Ashleigh is a former federal prosecutor who also previously served our neighborhoods as Chair of the Anaheim Community Services Board. As a two-term commissioner, she helped secure funding for local non-profit organizations to lift people out of poverty, prevent elder abuse, offer job training and placement, and provide additional education and arts resources to our at-risk youth.

She is also the former Chair and a current member of the Orange County Fair Board, where she is helping to lead improvements on the grounds, add recreational opportunities, offer free programming to over 100,000 schoolchildren at the Centennial Farm, and mitigate traffic on event days. The Heroes Hall museum and education center in honor of our military veterans and the Table of Dignity, the state’s largest memorial to farm workers, were also created with the help of Ashleigh’s leadership on the Fair Board.

Ashleigh and her husband, Michael, live in Anaheim with their three daughters and an ark of animals. Ashleigh and Michael work at the family-run law firm Aitken Aitken Cohn. She continues to support and volunteer with the local Assistance League of Anaheim, Girl Scouts of Orange County, Special Olympics, Chance Theater, Anaheim Ballet, Muzeo, and South Coast Repertory.

    I seem to remember from a few years back, local leaders had uncovered Dalati’s ties to extremist organizations.

    Whoa, Ms. Aitken is getting an endorsement from Bill Dalati who has ties to extremists! That’s indicative of the type of mayor Ashleigh Aitken would be for Anaheim! She is definitely not getting my vote!!

    I’m not throwing my support behind Aiken. She leaves a lot to be desired.

    However, tying Bill Dalati to extremists was a race-baiting stunt by former state Republican Chairman Shawn Steel.

    Former State Senator John Lewis (bosom buddy of Tom Tait and indirect Jose Moreno campaign evangelist) happily propagated that bigoted b.s.

    How is it that John Lewis gets away with so much of this crap in Anaheim?
