Don’t ban me, bro!!

I was informed by a reliable source that, according to analysis by the Angel’s legal counsel, Councilwoman Lorri Galloway’s proposed ban on exotic animals, intended to banish Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Circus from Anaheim, would have also outlawed the Angel’s beloved mascot, the Rally Monkey.

Welcome to Anaheim!

According to the OC Register, dealing with the summer riots in Anaheim cost $1.7 million in police overtime.

“The Police Department spent $1.7 million on officer overtime during a four-week stretch when people took to the streets to protest two fatal shootings by police and long-simmering political frustration over the summer.

The department deployed SWAT officers, mounted patrols, detectives and patrol officers amounting to nearly 24,500 hours of overtime in July and August. Based on those hours, the average hourly overtime wage was $69.”

This should surprise no one. Ensuring the safety of citizens is a fundamental duty of government.

Mere minutes before the start of last night’s Anaheim City Council meeting, Councilwoman Lorri Galloway’s colleagues learned she would pull her proposed ordinance to ban circus animals from city soil. Her target was Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which has the temerity to entertain children and their parents with exotic animals like elephants and tigers, all while making…wait for it…a profit!

Councilwoman Galloway explained that those who had urged her to introduce the ordinance – animal rights organization like PETA – had asked her to pull it. While there’s no reason to doubt that is true, it doesn’t answer the question of why PETA would want it pulled.

John Leos is running for Anaheim City Council.

He finished third in the 2010 council election, powered by more than $200,000 in campaign spending by the powerful Orange County Employees Association (OCEA).

Welcome to Anaheim Blog! Anaheim is a great city, in large part due to city leaders with the vision to look far down the road. Leaders who valued business development, keeping neighborhoods safe and conservative ideals.

Lately, turmoil has come to Anaheim. Gang members and anarchists manipulate protesters in front of City Hall, sparking riots that have damaged Anaheim’s reputation as a desirable place to work, live and visit. City leaders and activists who should know better egg them on for personal political motives. Far-left groups like the ACLU sue the city, hoping to impose a council re-structuring that will fracture the city into districts and guarantee council seats for liberal Democrats.

Those blogging here oppose these efforts to turn Anaheim into something it isn’t, and want to support those individual and issues representing what made Anaheim a great city.
