“This just shouldn’t happen,” a plainly angry Tait said around 12:45 a.m after more than five hours of debate and a conga-line of public speakers at the council meeting. *He added, "Screw them for being the city's largest employer and for drawing in so many tourists to spend money here. They totally owe the city for us allowing them to have a park here."*

He didn't really say that last part but isn't that what he seems to think? Entitlement.

Anaheim's economy is based on the presence of Disneyland and the mayor surely knows that but I have a feeling he had to publicly vote against this to save face.
