There was a strong turnout last Thursday at Lucille Kring’s mayor campaign fundraiser at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in the Resort area, out on the patio with the results of 20 years of bond-financed investment in the Resort in full view.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackackaus headlined Kring’s fundraiser. He talked about the great work being done to crack down on criminal gangs in Anaheim, praising the city’s police department as “one of the best” and originators of the GRIP (Gang Reduction and Intervention Program) program that is now used county-wide.
