OCCORD Picketing Tonight’s Council Meeting In Support of Carving Up Anaheim

On July 3, when the Anaheim City Council re-visited the issue of placing single-member council districts on the June 2014 ballot, OCCORD – which has been spearheading the effort with its godparent union UNITE-HERE — was essentially a no-show.

Jason Young’s Shameful Attempt to Intimidate CAC Member

Anaheim Blog readers remember Jason Young, gadfly wedding videographer with a court record. Jason is about as subtle and nuanced as a sledgehammer.

UNITE-HERE: A Big Cog In Single-Member Council Districts Coalition

I published a series of posts delving into the origins, funding and self-proclaimed mission of OCCORD, one fo the left-wing groups spearheading the drive for electing the Anaheim City Council from single-member districts. You can read those posts here, here, here and here. Another major cog in that coalition is Local 11 of the militant union UNITE-HERE, which represents “more than 20,000 ...

What Is OCCORD? Part 1

I’ve attended most of the Citizens Advisory Committee meetings, and as I’ve noted in previous posts, it was clear from early on that a left-wing coalition was forming to push the CAC toward recommending a switch to electing the Anaheim City Council from single-member districts; that is, Anaheim residents would only have a vote within their council district, and have no voice ...
