PEOPLE’S MAP WINS! Some Pictorial Memories (Plus a Few Words from Neil DeGrasse Tyson)

This time, it IS time, Anaheim!

The Recommended Plan — also known as the People’s Map and the Reyes 2 Map — has a new name tonight:  It’s the Approved Map.  The Council approved it on a 5-0 vote, effectively without further debate on its merits.

And what a long strange trip it’s been!  Remember this one?

Anaheim Districting Press Conference

First there was the Moreno v. Anaheim lawsuit, then the election, then the hijacking of the districting process … and so much more!

And this one?

Anaheim 6-stripe map for pro-districting campaign

Not the actual final map, although a majority did seem willing to go with 3-1/2 districts in Anaheim Hills.

Then there was this.

And this:

And this:

And we can’t forget this, much as we’d like to:

 

Guess which Anaheim flatlands district won't get to vote on its representative in 2016?

Arghhhh.

And we won’t even talk about this:

Brandman, Mickey Mouse, Dora in Anaheim (snake!)

But then there was this:

Anaheim City Council

And tonight there was this:

Levitt and De Mayo

… about this for now I will only say this:

Tyson Science Doesn't Care

… about which we will find out more in due time!  (It’s going to take a lot of work — but there’s plenty of time left now to do it that the People’s Map has been approved!


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
