Steve Faessel, District 5 Anaheim City Council Member

Due to the coronavirus I am suspending my re-election campaign until the current crisis has passed. Please visit us again soon for updates.

The City of Anaheim is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have declared a local emergency to gain access to resources, while every department is taking part in our response to the outbreak. Please click HERE for information on case count, news and available resources.


My name is Steve Faessel. Welcome to my website.

I am the Anaheim Councilman for District 5, as well as, the Mayor Pro Tem. Our District 5 stretches from Orangewood Avenue in the South to Orangethorpe Avenue in the North, basically from the south end of the City to the north, from the Santa Ana River to East Street.

District 5 includes Angel Stadium, Honda Center, City National Grove of Anaheim and Anaheim’s Regional Transportation Intermodal Center.

We have over 11,000 households in District 5, some of the best restaurants in the region and the most breweries in the City. We are ethnically diverse and we celebrate our diversity.

District 5 has some challenges. We have four of the most impacted neighborhoods in Anaheim. The effort to address homelessness continues especially along St. College Ave. And while we have some good parks and recreation facilities in District 5, we need more.

I am working on all of these challenges. The thing about Anaheim is and Anaheimers are … we rise to the challenge!

Please look over our website and let me know if you have any ideas, concerns or suggestions. We are here to help.
