1/5

"We need a mayor with experience who takes strong action and follows through on promises – who doesn’t speak in generalities, but instead offers specific steps to address our many challenges and move Anaheim forward. During my eight years on city council I focused on issues that would bring clear and tangible results to the residents of Anaheim and that is what I will do as mayor. We need to make our local economy work better for everyone; we need to address the homelessness crisis impacting our residents and neighborhoods; we need to tackle the scourge of crime and gang violence."

LORRI'S 7 SOLUTIONS FOR ANAHEIM
1. BUILD AN ECONOMY THAT BENEFITS EVERYONE
  • Make local investments in infrastructure, providing incentives for living wages, job creation, and community redevelopment. 

  • Connect the working class to better training and technical education opportunities.

  • Make it easier to open a business and offer micro-loans to new startups.

  • Create new development prospects in older neighborhoods like west Anaheim by working directly with developers to incentivize retail and other ventures without displacing long-term residents.

2. SOLVE THE HOMELESSNESS CRISIS
  • Prioritize permanent supportive housing for homeless people with disabilities. 

  • Put residents first, relocating the homeless into shelters or other facilities and cleaning up encampments so that we can reclaim our parks and rivers for the community.

  • Ensure services are available by bringing business and community leaders together to supply emergency beds.

  • Eradicate the root causes of homelessness by addressing issues impacting the mentally ill and drug-addicted to the formerly incarcerated and the urban poor.

  • Aggressively implement early childhood intervention programs, drug counseling and rehabilitation, and economic growth packages.

3. GET TOUGH ON GANGS, GRAFFITI AND VANDALISM
  • Increase the number of officers and patrols while diverting young people to positive alternatives, like jobs and specialized training.

  • Aggressive consequences for graffiti and vandalism and create a task force to monitor distressed neighborhoods and provide rapid response.

  • Install cameras in known high-crime areas to identify bad actors and discourage criminal behavior.

  • Work with local high schools to create a pipeline of new police recruits that better reflect the community they serve.

4. INCREASE THE SUPPLY OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING
  • Work directly with developers to incentivize affordable housing developments.

  • Streamline permitting for affordable housing projects.

  • Identify new areas of the city for development.

  • Clear a path for infill development that allows residents to live and work in the same area.

5. INCREASE MOBILITY THROUGH TRANSPORTATION INVESTMENTS
  • Implement a permit parking program in Anaheim neighborhoods where space is limited due to high traffic and workday commuters.

  • Work with innovative new platforms like rideshares to create shuttle services with reliable rides and fixed routes that encourage carpooling and reduce congestion.

  • Reinvest in public transit to reduce pollution and traffic congestion on our major roads and freeways.

6. PREPARE OUR CHILDREN TO GET AHEAD
  • Implement early childhood intervention programs that put our kids on the path to a good job, not a prison sentence, and help students suffering from early childhood trauma, poverty and neglect.

  • Reinvest in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math to prepare the next generation of workers to obtain good, high-paying jobs that are right here in Anaheim.

  • Open new libraries so young people hungry for knowledge have safe, positive places they can go.

  • Open a new sports park in the city – and update our existing parks – to keep our kids healthy and active.

7. LEVERAGE INVESTMENTS IN RESORTS & TOURISM
  • Work with the resort district to create fair incentives that accelerate growth and investment in Anaheim.

  • Leverage resort investments to generate new revenues for city services that enhance quality of life for the residents of Anaheim.
