With the current economic challenges facing all who live, work, and do business in North Orange County, Anaheim City Councilman Harry Sidhu has been giving considerable deliberation as to how he may best continue to serve and make a difference. He is proud to have won the office of councilman for two terms, and the goals that drive him are the chance to serve all, regionally, and get things done – not personal power or glory. The same core values that propelled him into business guide him in wanting to return good service and a “can-do” attitude to all levels of government.

This has led Councilman Sidhu to form a 2010 Orange County Supervisor, Fourth District, Campaign Committee. “It has been an honor and a privilege to have the support of the Indo-American community in my public service endeavors,” he said, “and I would welcome the opportunity of receiving early endorsement and any other support that may be provided – whether it be financial, introducing me to voters, hosting a coffee, etc.”

“Earning your ongoing trust and backing is very important to me,” Councilman Sidhu stated. “During my tenure on the Anaheim City Council, I have been dedicated to improving the lives and opportunities for all through common sense leadership. With a proven record of protecting the needs of our taxpayers, families, and business owners, being ‘tough on crime’ and fostering a positive/pro-active approach in our communities, our work is never done. I have strived to ensure transparency in government, accountability, fairness in economic development, and public safety. As a successful business owner, I have also brought practical, real world experience and ‘can-do’ knowledge to the halls of government. Consequently, our residents and businesses have experienced greater freedom of choice and opportunities.”

“I am seeking to serve through a regional leadership position on the Orange County Board of Supervisors,” he explained, “because the taxpayers need and deserve a strong, problem-solving voice on the Board from a representative who has reliable business understanding, as well as background experience in implementing innovative reforms, such as economic stimulus incentives, to effectively meet the challenges ahead. We must keep Orange County moving forward in a positive, economically diverse, and fiscally sound direction.”

“Thirty-four years ago, I came to our great country from India as a child full of dreams. By way of hard work, as a proud American, I fulfilled many of those dreams. It has been, and continues to be, an honor to give back to this great country, and those who have given me so much, through public service. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, during this bicentennial celebration of his birth, let us remember to: ‘Leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today.’”

“The competition will be spirited,” explained Councilman Sidhu. “Yet, I am extremely optimistic that with supporters such as Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle and many others that I will announce, a winning team and coalition will once again be formed to make a difference by getting things done with the experience we need working for us!

Harry Sidhu was elected as the first Indo-American to serve on the Anaheim City Council in 2004 and re-elected to a second term by a significant margin in November 2008. He currently serves on the City Audit Committee, has focused on keeping fees low and managing costs as an Orange County Sanitation District Director, and along with his City Council colleagues ensured the protection of property rights through the successful passage of a City Charter Amendment prohibiting eminent domain abuse.
