OC Register Endorsement - Kenneth Batiste for District 5
Endorses Kenneth Batiste for Council District 5:
The District 5 seat currently is held by Steve Faessel. We had endorsed him in 2016 largely because of his support for limiting taxes and opposition to Anaheim’s draconian short-term rental ban. We’ve been disappointed, however, by his vote for the stadium deal, his belief that pension liabilities will be handled simply by boosting the economy, and his backing of status quo policies involving the Resort Area and major spending issues.
This year we support Kenneth Batiste. Although we disagree with his emphasis on housing subsidies, we like his criticism of the city’s special tax breaks for hotels and the convention center bond. He also is open to reforming the city’s overly costly benefit plans. Batiste opposed the stadium deal — and argued that Anaheim should have sold this prime property at auction.

……2) So when you give to the needy, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their full reward. 3) But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4) so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.… (from Matthew 6:3)

Anaheim City resident Kenneth Batiste, 65, addresses the Anaheim City Council at its Sept. 24, 2019 meeting. “Angels stadium makes $1.6 million since 2010, while the Angels have made $100 million. What kind of negotiation is really going on?” Batiste said.
