Anaheim Firefighters Endorse Caldwell Over Moreno in District 3 City Council

Mitch Caldwell

Anaheim, CA. – September 7, 2018. The Anaheim Firefighters Association, Local 2899 is pleased to announce its support for candidate Mitch Caldwell to represent the City’s 3rd Council District. Caldwell is challenging incumbent Councilman Jose F. Moreno for the seat.

According to Association President Rick Cheatham, the organization’s members picked Caldwell because, “He’s a man committed to results, not the rhetoric we’ve become accustomed to.”

Caldwell, a 56-year resident, self-made successful businessman and neighborhood activist has a long history of community involvement and civic engagement. Founder of the Anaheim Neighborhood Association, Caldwell is former Chair of the City’s Planning Commission and has served on its Charter Review Committee.

Says Cheatham, “Mitch Caldwell brings to the council two very important qualities for success, competence and integrity. He’s a man of his word, and will help to insure your family is safe by restoring the 21 positions Anaheim Firefighters lost 10 years ago. A vote for Mitch is a vote for your safety.”

If elected, the challenger has vowed to fully staff and equip Anaheim’s fire and police departments. Caldwell also includes on his to do list compassionate action to address Anaheim’s record levels of homelessness and bringing neighborhood results back in focus on the Council.

Originally established in 1964, the Anaheim Firefighters Association represents the nearly 200 professional firefighters, paramedics and EMTs of the Anaheim Fire & Rescue Department.

    Mary – Please tell us what facts you have supporting the notion that Mitch Caldwell abandoned his kids. Do you know him? Do you know his children? Please understand that, however unfair, it would be just as easy for me to say that about you. Words matter and random commenting without some research is irresponsible.

      No, they’re saying that about me, which is equally untrue and libelous.

      The comment you’re responding to is from some anonymous jackass pretending to be an old high school friend of mine, and two comments above that he’s pretending to be my son.

      These lifeless creeps troll people’s Facebook all day long to think up ways to slander them, and this quality blog is their outlet of choice.

        So what you’re saying, Vern, is that Dan left up a fake comment under your son’s name accusing you of abandoning him, while taking down a comment under your high school friend Mary Drazba’s name that (according to anonymous poster “Colony Insider”) accused Mitch Caldwell of abandoning HIS kids? That certainly is fair and balanced!

    This post is fake. My name is Mary Drazba, maiden name O’Hara, and I have no clue who hacked this site and posted a fake message. I have not lived in Orange County for 40 years. Please, Liberal OC take down this post and block this user from using my identity.

        I don’t read the worthless posts, just the ludicrous comments. It reminds me of how low people can go. So I guess you have that one pathetic thing going for you.

            Comic book collector? That’s what you wanna go with?


            By the way, you’ve never offered a single instance of when I have used profanity on this clown site. Guess you can add liar to comic book collector.

              You don’t have to use profanity to be vulgar and you certainly are. Would you like to hear about my vinyl collection of albums and 45s? I’ll go with husband, father, brother, son, friend, business owner. Life is pretty good.

    If there is ANY question as to VPN’s credibility, sanity, suitability look no further than the Anaheim City Council meeting video where he dresses up and sings.

    This guy is a TRAIN WRECK. I am sure his cadre of followers would consider him good company around their young children, most responsible humans would not.

    But, to the previous commenters point, Vern has not explained his role as a Father, Husband (BLACK EYES come to mind) or his attempted rape of a city councilwoman.

    “I suppose those inconvenient facts will be on the follow up album: I know I’m a LOSER, But it beats working for a living”

    “his attempted rape of a city councilwoman.”

    Gonna leave that up husband, father, brother, son, friend, business owner, not to mention owner of a bunch of worthless records? Sure says a lot about you.

    Hard to believe you have any friends at all. Where are they? John Mardahl and OC DEM? The old lady know what you and your pals do in your copious spare time?

      It was a sexual assault according to Lorri whom I believe. Yes, I’ll leave it up. Commenters are responsible for their comments.

      You hid behind an alias and throw bombs from a hole. Sure says a lot about you. My vinyl is worthless? Beatles White Album. Original UK pressing. Still in shrink wrap. I think you know the price of things but the value of nothing. As far as friends go, I have plenty. The bigger question is do you? I’m sure your imaginary friend and you have lovely tea parties.

    You know who uses the “it says a lot about you” line? Mike Fox. The guy who pretended to be a Vet dentist. Can you check?
