One of those past rumors was the accusation that while Lorri Galloway flaunts her membership in the CSUF Alumni Association, it was a ruse to hide the fact that she had never completed a university degree. That rumor is untrue. Lorri Galloway did complete her B.A. in Health and Human Services in 1987, according to the CSUF website.
The question here is, does a degree in social work help or hinder her qualifications for City Council? Is the Anaheim City Council a social services agency? Lorri Galloway’s continued commitment to provide taxpayer subsidized housing to those employees who have voluntarily chosen careers in the City of Anaheim appears to indicate that she believes it is. Do the voters agree? While compassion is something we hope all residents would strive for, are social service programs an appropriate use of tax dollars, or is that task best left to private charitable organizations?
The City of Anaheim is reportedly asking departments to cut expenses by at least 10%. Revenue streams from sales tax and property tax are performing below expectations, and only the Galloway-opposed Resort district is producing its share of revenue. While City departments tighten belts, Lorri insists on spending more money for subsidized social programs. Is this what the voters of Anaheim want? That question will have to be answered in November.
