Thomas “Hoagy” Holguin Announces Anaheim City Council Candidacy

10-Year Anaheim Union High School District Trustee to host kick-off event on May 24th at The Anaheim White House

Thomas “Hoagy” Holguin today announced his intention to seek election to the Anaheim City Council in the Fall of 2010. Holguin, a past president, has been a trustee with the Anaheim Union High School District Board of Trustees since 2000. He also previously served on the Board of Trustees for the North Orange County ROP, and is a successful local businessman and 28-year resident of Anaheim.

“It continues to be a great honor to represent the students, parents and taxpayers of Anaheim Union High School District and I am completely energized about the possibility of working to find solutions for the city as an Anaheim City Council member,” said Holguin.

During his tenure on the AUHSD Board, Holguin was a key supporter in the passage of a $256 million school construction bond that renovated schools and built new facilities throughout the district. During his service, high school graduations increased and parental involvement have shown marked increases. “Investing in Anaheim’s youth is an investment in the future health of our community. I’m proud of my track record in making sure we’ve accomplished that goal,” he added.

“Given my success in education, I believe that I can bring a business approach to city government that encourages private investment and public participation while maintaining the current level of public services and living within our means. Maintaining public safety and increasing neighborhood investment and participation are also high priorities for me as well. During these challenging times, it is imperative that we bring a fiscally responsible approach to city government and combine that with a high degree of transparency to ensure the public’s trust,” said Holguin.

The public is invited to attend a campaign kick-off event for “Hoagy” on May 24th at the Anaheim White House, 887 South Anaheim Blvd. in Anaheim. For more information, please call 714-984-5471 or e-mail at
