Anaheim Election Results Analysis:
"With Sidhu, Brandman, and O’Neil wins, Disney will once again have a favorable majority on the Anaheim City Council. They will join pro-Disney councilmembers Kring and Faessel to bring their votes to 5 while Moreno will rejoin Barnes in the minority with 2 votes.
But while Anaheim and Disneyland look to reset their relationship, they may be limited to what sort of economic assistance the city would provide due to Measure L. While the initiative to increase the minimum wage for certain business that receive economic assistance from Anaheim is leading by 422 votes, it is still too early to call as there are provisional ballots as well as mail-in ballots that need to be counted.
While Anaheim believes the measure does not currently apply to the Disneyland Resort, expect labor unions to challenge that interpretation. They outspent the Disneyland Resort in campaign contributions to support candidates and the measure having spent $1.9 million compared to the Disneyland Resort’s $1.6 million."
