Anaheim June 2024 Special Election Update

Dear AMEA member,

Thank you to every AMEA member who stood together to oppose the unnecessary recall attempt of Anaheim Councilwoman Natalie Rubalcava. The recall attempt was soundly defeated last week.

The Anaheim Municipal Employees Association proudly supported Natalie because she is good for the City. Since her election to the City Council in 2022 she has stood with us. She and her staff have worked hand-in-hand with AMEA members and staff to address important issues facing workers. Councilwoman Rubalcava has consistently challenged outsourcing, pushed for enhanced workplace safety, and advocated for better pay and benefits. Simply put, she supports each of us and all working people!

The costly and unnecessary recall attempt was defeated by a healthy margin, despite hundreds of thousands of dollars being spent against her. At the end of the day, the voters of Anaheim District 3 did not believe the lies and trusted the results. Again, we thank everyone who talked to their neighbors and spent time on their days and weekends off to support Councilwoman Rubalcava.
