I admit I don't have a clue what Lorri Galloway accomplished during her last stint on the Anaheim City Council. So I can't speak to her record. I've heard her impassioned pleas before the crony capitalist majority and have recorded many of her rally's. I love her passion for the issues I believe in.
But what really speaks to her character is her choice to run for Mayor of Anaheim against longtime friend and supporter Mayor Tom Tait. I truly don't believe this what a true "friend" would do to another friend. A true friend would wait until Mayor Tait's second term is over and then run for Mayor. I believe her ego and need for political clout to funnel funds to the Eli Home is the real reason for this run.
I was present at a meeting held at Lorri's home about 2 weeks ago where she laid out her plans to run for council. Plans which she hoped would include Mayor Tait running for council instead of Mayor. Interesting idea huh? My hope is that the coalition that has supported Mayor Tait, include unlikely Demorat/Union allies, will not turn on him as well.
I've never met a man that I have respected and admired more. Someone who fights for what's right no matter what the cost politically. I'm proud to call him my friend and I am thankful for the opportunity to support his campaign for re-election.
