The city puts homeless people in shelters spends millions of dollars and has no oversight for the service providers. They ware-house people with no way out. There is no one to help them with job training, rehab, essential paper work and other services that can get them housing support from the county state or federal government. Even if they have some success there is no accountability and the people just end up back on the streets AS YOU CAN SEE.
A VOTE FOR JEANINE ROBBINS IS A VOTE FOR COMMUNITY FIRST - TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT, AFFORDABLE HOUSING, SUPPORT FOR BETTER INFRASTRUCTURE, ESTABLISHING IMPROVED GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY, IMPROVING PARKS AND RECREATION, FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, AND ELIMINATING CITY COUNCIL CORRUPTION
were a step in the right direction to give everyone a place in city government. Jeanine was there as one of the representatives of the cause for the constitutional right to representation in government.
Disneyland is a major employer in Anaheim and the County. It is one of the most profitable corporations in the world. Anaheim citizens financed the development of the park, and Disneyland paid the lowest wages in the county; So...
JEANINE STARTED "SUMMER OF THE PEOPLE"
And organized a sleep out around Disneyland to bring attention to the plight of low wage earners that in some cases lived in their cars or in tents around the county.
DISNEYLAND RAISES WAGES!!!
Disneyland raised wages for most workers to $15 an hour and $18 by 2022
ELDERLY RENT INCREASES
Mobile home parks are being bought up by predatory buyers raising the rents up to 90%
When the senior citizens in Rancho La Paz Mobile Home Park were devastated by this increased rent Jeanine fought to stop this ridiculous increase through her advocacy and support.
The big business city council had taken election funding from the billionaire buyer of Mobile Home Parks and voted against rent restrictions.
The city council could have voted to restrict the rent increase but instead gave our tax dollars to their billionaire donor to offset the new rent.
DOES ANAHEIM CARE ABOUT THE ELDERLY?
To further support the elderly we need to help. Anaheim has 1.5 people to help the elderly.
That is 1 worker and 1 part time worker.
They need food, health and rent support.
WORKING TO IMPROVE GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY
Jeanine Robbins adds her voice to stop the immediate destruction of public documents by the OC Board of Supervisors
A legal battle over public records destruction and public comments played out in an Orange County courtroom Wednesday, as the ACLU and county lawyers delivered their arguments to a judge deciding whether county officials are breaking the law.
The lawsuit alleges the county government has a host of illegal and unconstitutional policies and practices that stifle public information and debate.
Orange County and other local governments passed policies allowing immediate destruction of such records.
The immediate destruction policy was unanimously approved in September 2017 by supervisors Steel, Lisa Bartlett, Andrew Do and former supervisors Todd Spitzer and Shawn Nelson.
The records destruction policy took effect in December 2017.
The plaintiff in the lawsuit, the People’s Homeless Task Force, is an advocacy group of residents concerned about the county’s growing homelessness, and its members have often publicly criticized supervisors during public comments.
The task force was co-founded by advocates Mike and Jeanine Robbins, Lou Noble, Linda Lehnkering, David Duran, and others, according to their suit.
In the final moments of oral arguments Wednesday, a county lawyer argued the task force was seeking an “extremely broad and extremely sweeping” order blocking county policies.
The plaintiff’s attorneys, meanwhile, argued there’s a permanent harm to the public if government is immediately destroying records about their conduct that would be subject to public records requests.
“The problem is, if the county destroys a record…and a records act request is made tomorrow, there’s no document to potentially hand over,” Byer told the judge.
WORKING TO IDENTIFY ALLEGED CORRUPTION
Jeanine Robbins, who attends nearly every City Council meeting and is part of Housing is a Human Right OC, said nobody from Anaheim First has returned her emails seeking participation in the group.
“There was no application, so I sent them an email through their website and I never heard back and I sent them another email like a week later and never heard back,” Robbins said.
“They had already handpicked the people they wanted on there. Handpicked people who are in line with the Chamber of Commerce,” Robbins said. “So it’s a way of paying back Harry Sidhu’s campaign donors. Trevor O’Neil’s campaign donors, too — the council majority is the best way to put it.”
According to campaign finance data, the Chamber of Commerce spent nearly $240,000 on Sidhu’s 2018 campaign for mayor.
The Chamber paid for consulting services, digital advertising, polling and political mailers for Sidhu.
Many of Anaheim First’s initial members have ties to pro-business organizations like the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, Visit Anaheim and Support Our Anaheim Resort (SOAR), a political action committee funded by Disney in 2018.
Disney gave SOAR at least $1.2 million in cash contributions in 2018, according to campaign finance data.
Moreno’s 2018 City Council opponent Mitch Caldwell is also on Anaheim First and was heavily backed by SOAR — the group spent $358,000 in independent expenditures on Caldwell’s campaign.
Caldwell also couldn’t be reached for comment.
SOAR also spent at least $350,000 in independent expenditures on the 2018 campaigns of both O’Neil and Brandman.
Moreno said many of the members, who are listed on the Anaheim First website and the OC Register advertisement, have strong ties to the resort industry, were outspoken critics of district elections and were against the $18 hotel minimum wage measure in 2018.
“They were very involved in the elections and how this is their payoff: a pay-to-play system. And it certainly reflects why the Disney corporation and the Chamber of Commerce and the Orange County Business Council and other corporate interests would spend millions of dollars on local city council elections. This was the payoff.
“One of the big concerns I had was there were no deliverables, there were no outcomes, no financial audits embedded in the agreement. It was just give $250,000 to a nonprofit, no questions asked. And that was the way of previous councils … and we began to dismantle that and that’s now been restored by the new council,”
