Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Kring's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[3]

Public safety

  • Excerpt: "Public Safety is Lucille's top priority. She is working hard to help restore Anaheim Police Officer and Fire Fighter positions we lost due to the 2008 economic crisis. Lucille has worked closely with our Police Department to expand Community Policing – which keeps our officers focused on our neighborhoods – so they can prevent crime before it happens."

Economic development

  • Excerpt: "Anaheim is a destination city dependent on tourism. Lucille voted to expand our Convention Center again, keeping Anaheim's the biggest west of Las Vegas, ensuring vital convention bookings for decades to come. Lucille is a leader in the Chamber of Commerce's mission to help protect our local businesses and attract new businesses to Anaheim. She supports the revised Garden Walk development agreement because she knows that it means thousands of new jobs in construction, retail and hospitality management for Anaheim residents. Lucille champions the effort to keep our Angels baseball team here in Anaheim. The Angels are more than the money they generate in revenues annually, they are another symbol of Anaheim's World Class City status – and the new stadium renovations will restore our ball park to entertainment excellence."

Neighborhoods and parks

  • Excerpt: "Public safety and strong neighborhoods go hand-­in-­hand. Preventing juvenile crime by providing our youth with recreational opportunities, after-school programs and safe places to play is one part of the solution. Maintaining our parks, streets and public spaces is also important to Anaheim residents. Lucille has voted to spend more than $1 million dollars-a-year on the city's anti-­graffiti program that removes graffiti within 24 hours."

Community

  • Excerpt: "Too many Anaheim politicians and so-called community leaders engage in finger pointing and find value in splitting our community along ethnic, geographic and socio-economic divides. Lucille will fight to put an end to hostility and uncivility in our civic affairs, as she has done throughout her public life. Lucille builds consensus and coalitions. Lucille listens, then leads."
