John Leos Responds to Negative Campaign of Corporate Interests
ANAHEIM (October 29, 2012) — The Voice of OC reported today that Disney-funded PACs supporting Steve Chavez Lodge and Jordan Brandman for Anaheim City Council have in turn funded another PAC which is sending out negative mailers opposing John Leos for Anaheim City Council. That PAC’s principal officer, Citizens for Anaheim’s Future, is former Anaheim mayor-turned-lobbyist Curt Pringle.
“I am a little surprised that corporate interests are opposing the only candidate who actually has experience with pension reform and restructuring retiree medical benefits,” said Leos. “This is the only pension reform Orange County has ever seen. Working alongside people such as those on the County Board of Supervisors, I worked to save taxpayers many millions of dollars.”
John Leos is former U.S. Marine and a lifelong resident of Anaheim whose family has been in the city for nearly 100 years. This is his second campaign for Anaheim City Council, having placed third for two seats in 2010.

The Walt Disney Company is so desperate to retain power over the Anaheim City Council that they have begun funding a negative campaign against John Leos and Lucille Kring.
Here’s how they have funneled their money to hit Mayor Tom Tait’s reform team:
1. Disney directly gives $100,000 the Orange County Business Council (OCBC) in addition to $15,000 funneled thru SOAR aka Screw Our Anaheim Residents.
2. OCBC turns around and gives $24,000 to a PAC entitled Citizens for Anaheim’s Future chaired by Anaheim City council member Kris Murray.
