SOAR PAC logoFor some reason, Matt’s post about Cynthia Ward starting up an “Anaheim Taxpayers Association” PAC reminded me of her dramatic resignation from the Save Our Anaheim Resort PAC board back in September 2010.

Back then, Cynthia was a big backer of Shirley McCracken’s campaign for mayor and a loud opponent of Tom Tait, whom she dismissed as a special interest puppet. When the SOAR PAC board endorsed Tait over McCracken, Cynthia submitted this resignation letter. It is full of the political martyr complex and visions of gathering dark forces (against which Cynthia battles ceaselessly) that many of us have become familiar with.

Since Cynthia somersaulted from Tait critic to His Biggest Fan about a year ago, we figure she’s about mid-way through the story arc on her way to disenchantment before finally turning on the Mayor in favor of a new white knight.

The Anaheim city council campaign began in earnest last week as 60,311 vote-by-mail ballots were mailed to Anaheim voters by the OC Registrar of Voters (1,104 have been returned thus far, and total VBMs issued is up to 61,994).

Campaigns times their mail campaigns to that exercise, and the first mailer (from Anaheim school trustee Jordan Brandman) landed a few days prior to VBMs being mailed.

Since then, mail pieces have been raining on Anaheim voters. Brandman and Steve Chavez Lodge have been dominating the mail box, both in their own pieces and in mailers from independent expenditure committees. Lucille Kring sent out one piece, as did John Leos (neither of which I have).
