This Thursday (today), the Anaheim Citizens Advisory Committee on Elections will decide upon several key recommendations to the council, including how many council seats are necessary for a city the size of Anaheim and whether or not to adopt council districts.
Yesterday Orange County Superior Court Judge Franz Miller delayed the start of the trial over a voting rights lawsuit seeking district elections for city council members. Judge Miller agreed with the city that the committee debating the issue should be allowed to complete its work before he makes his ruling.
Last night the Democratic Party of Orange County (DPOC) passed a resolution endorsing an eight-district plan for the Anaheim City Council. The resolution was the product of the work of the local Democratic Party’s Resolution Committee which was adopted by the Executive Board two weeks ago and sent to the Party Central Committee for consideration Tuesday evening.
