Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait spoke at the Club August 27th. Tom spoke about his two major initiatives, "Freedom" and "Kindness" in local government—which are very aligned with Rotary’s mission. The Mayor believes in knocking down government barriers for people to realize their personal and entrepreneurial dreams. This goes straight to his position that government should be more kind in its approach. He also spoke of the challenges facing Anaheim in the wake of the 2012 riots that were driven by two police officer involved shootings. The Mayor has received national attention for his community outreach efforts to disenfranchised constituents in the wake of the unrest.
