“Greetings From Anaheim
Anaheim is known locally and the world over as the home of Disneyland, Walt Disney’s original theme park, as well as for Angels Baseball and Anaheim Ducks hockey.
For those who live here, Anaheim is a community of distinct neighborhoods within Orange County’s largest and most high-profile city.
It is my honor to serve them all as mayor, the single citywide representative position on our City Council.
As Anaheim’s first immigrant mayor in current times, I’m proud to represent a modern and diverse city with a long history. Empowering the American Dream is my leadership vision for Anaheim.
It’s a perspective shared by many in our city. More than half of Anaheim residents trace their origins from somewhere else, and they have helped make Anaheim a city that embraces those looking to fulfill their American Dream. As mayor, I encourage a strong economy to serve our residents, improve our neighborhoods and create opportunity for all.
We are proud that Anaheim is a place of joy for the world. But our visitor economy is much more than that.
As evidenced during the pandemic, our theme parks, convention center and sports venues provide critical revenue for public safety and community services. And they support tens of thousands of working families and small businesses.
With recovery underway and more than $10 billion in new investment planned, guiding Anaheim’s new Golden Age is one of my top priorities. Not only will it grow Anaheim as a place loved by so many, it will also help us serve our community for decades to come.”
