Thomas Hoagy Holguin Anaheim City Council campaign update

Below is a campaign update from Thomas “Hoagy” Holguin, one of the leading candidates for the Anaheim City Council.


For the last 8 weeks, I have spent countless hours walking neighborhoods in Anaheim and have had the opportunity to meet with many residents and hear their concerns. That is what this campaign is about—hearing what the voters have to say about Anaheim, and I want to hear from you too. Chances are, I’ll be coming to your door, but in case I miss you, please visit my website at to find out more about my campaign, voice your concerns, and leave valuable feedback.


Under the new early release program passed last year by the California Legislature, over 27,000 prison inmates could be released this year and back on our streets. This will surely affect the safety and security of our neighborhoods and will result in increased crime and graffiti. As your City Council Member, I will keep Police funding a top priority to ensure there are enough officers on patrol in our neighborhoods. Check out my YouTube video to see how I responded to this issue when asked about it at a neighborhood fundraiser.


In 2002, the year I was elected to the Anaheim Union High School District Board of Trustees, the Measure Z Anaheim High School Construction Bond was also passed allocating $132 million plus matching State funds for modernization and construction of school sites in the district. After finding that the District Superintendent and upper management had mismanaged the construction projects and funds, I called for the independent forensic audit that led to the Grand Jury investigation of the project which saved our District up to $50 million through massive restructuring and re-bidding of construction contracts and insurance policies. Check out my website for further details of how I saved our schools.


I am proud to receive the endorsement of 1st District County Supervisor, Janet Nguyen. Supervisor Nguyen knows the value of great schools in our community and supports me in working to keep schools a priority by creating a strong relationship between school districts and the City. She also believes in protecting our neighborhoods from gangs and crime, which is among my top priorities as City Council Member.


With only 7 weeks left until Election Day on November 2nd and 14 candidates in the running, we need help from dedicated volunteers who care about Anaheim and would like to help me get elected to City Council. To find out about how you can get involved, please email me at

Thanks for taking part in the political process and I hope to earn your vote on November 2nd.

In Service and Gratitude,

Thomas “Hoagy” Holguin
