Curt Pringle is Anaheim's puppet master. Pulling the strings of council members Kris Murray and Gail Eastman when his clients business comes before the city council. Here we present the connections between all of Curt's puppets. Originally posted by the orangejuiceblog.com.
Curt Pringle is former mayor of Anaheim and former California State Speaker of the House. Curt Pringle has a business and friendship relationship with Disney President George Kalogridis. Disney’s main consultant is Curt Pringle and Associates.
Kris Murray, Anaheim Councilmember, is Curt Pringle’s protégé and close confidant. Carrie Nocella is Disney’s “government relations executive.”
Carrie Nocella (pictured above) is Anaheim councilwoman Kris Murray’s best friend. Carrie Nocella is close friends with Curt Pringle and his family and they also vacation together.
Curt Pringle advises George Kalogridis on all Anaheim governmental matters, especially transportation issues, such as ARC (Anaheim Resort Connection) and ARTIC (Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodel Center), both projects worth in the billions of dollars. Curt Pringle is the consultant for ARC and for contractors for ARTIC.
Curt Pringle is the consultant for Bike Nation, a project of OCTA and city of Anaheim.
Curt Pringle is the consultant for Yellow Cab of Orange County, who is vying for most of the city’s cab franchises.
Curt Pringle is the consultant for Bill O’Connell, a private hotel developer, who, with the votes of Murray, Eastman and Sidhu, just received $158 million of taxpayer TOT for his hotel development.
Curt Pringle advised Disney to write the letter to endorse district elections; HOWEVER he then added the clause about a citizens’ advisory commission which is a stall tactic, a stall tactic that was ADOPTED by the Murray, Eastman and Sidhu majority. Disney does not REALLY want Districts. Their business is surrounded by some of the poorest neighborhoods in the city and they would have trouble controlling their constituents.
Carrie Nocella does Disney’s bidding by telling people of their “power of the control of three votes” (on the Anaheim council.) Carrie Nocella threatens that if any recall is made against Kris Murray, Disney will fight with everything they have.
Todd Ament (pictured above to the right) is Anaheim Chamber President, hired by former mayor Curt Pringle. Todd Ament’s salary is paid with Anaheim taxpayer dollars.
Nocella and Ament met with OCEA president, Nick Berardino. They made an agreement not to hit each other’s council candidates. OCEA will leave Jordan Brandman alone and Disney will leave John Leos alone.
If Jordan Brandman wins, he will continue to protect Disney’s interest. If John Leos wins, he will protect OCEA’s interest.
Pringle servants Lucy Dunn and Reed Royalty, gatekeepers to the OC’s economy.
Curt Pringle convinced his friend, Lucy Dunn (pictured above to the right), to be the director of the OC Business Council several years ago. The OCBC advocates for ARC, ARTIC, and the hotel TOT incentives to private developers.
Curt Pringle convinced Reed Royalty to be the director of OC Taxpayer Association. Reed Royalty will soon step down and Orange Mayor Carolyn Cavecche, another Pringle close friend and ally, will take his place. The Taxpayer Association speaks in favor of any and every Pringle & Associates project.
Curt Pringle created SOAR (Save Our Anaheim Resorts) originally in 2007, to fight against one residential development in the fringes of the resort area because HE was not their consultant. SOAR advocates for anything that involves Curt Pringle and Associates.
