I am Dr. Jose F. Moreno. My wife Lorena and I have four girls who attend our local public schools. Lorena is a public school principal and I am a university professor at CSU Long Beach.
I am running for City Council to bring honesty, integrity, and transparency to City Hall. Engaged, honest, and accountable leadership can protect Anaheim's fiscal stability while providing safe neighborhoods and parks, after-school programs, modernized infrastructure, and responsible developments that bring jobs families can live on.
Our neighborhoods need more attention. Our leaders hand out precious public assets: giving hundreds of millions in corporate subsidies and giveaways with little accountability. Meanwhile, our neighborhoods are neglected and struggle with broken streets, missing streetlights, and minimal park space.
For eight years I served on the school board working with families, teachers, and staff to improve the academic achievement of our students. Despite millions in state cutbacks, student achievement increased; schools were built and modernized on time and on budget, and innovative programs were developed in science, music, arts, and languages.
I am now running for the Anaheim City Council representing District 3, where I've lived for over 13 years, in our City's first-ever District-based elections. I joined our communities in advocating for District-based elections as it is my firm belief that a government closest to its people is the best form of government.
As your Councilman, I will work with residents and businesses across the political spectrum to make Anaheim a world-class city for tourists composed of world-class neighborhoods for residents. When we work together, everyone thrives.
Our children, families, and neighborhoods are the strength of our City but are too often neglected by our current City Council majority. Join our campaign to meet the promise of District-based elections; Join our campaign to bring neighborhood voices to City Hall; Join our campaign so we can bring back City Hall to its people!
I humbly ask for your support - for a greater, better Anaheim!
Jose F. Moreno
