From his Pro Bono work to the Chairmanship of the Anaheim Hills-Santiago Geological Hazard District (GHAD), Lal has fought to protect and restore everything that makes Anaheim truly extraordinary!
The Editorial Board of The Orange County Register just delivered a massive shock to the establishment by heartily endorsing HARI LAL. The key excerpt is below, as published:
"For Council District 6, we endorse Hari Lal. This choice is a no-brainer. Lal is an attorney who has been active in Anaheim neighborhood politics for years. He's brimming with energy and ideas - including great ones such as creating a city ombudsperson. He is an unabashed opponent of the pro-subsidy culture. He's a delightful character who restores our faith in grassroots politics.
His opponent - former public works director Natalie Meeks - is a bland establishmentarian. When pressed, she couldn't name a single idea to reform the city's politics. That floored us. She spoke about the many times she oversaw the city's use of eminent domain. The hotel and lodging association's political action committee backs her. Blech."

In response to the endorsement news, Mr. Lal said: "I could not be more humbled or awed by the Register's endorsement. I'm grateful they believe in our campaign. I'm also deeply touched by the outpouring of support we've gotten from Anaheim Hills residents. I meet so many people every day: republicans, independents, democrats, no party... maybe they reject all parties... and they all know I'm the guy who's fighting to clean house here. After thirty plus years, they've seen what I can do and that I have their backs!"
