Steve Faessel, Anaheim City Council Member

Steve-Faessel-homeMy name is Steve Faessel and I was elected in November of 2016 for City Council seat in District 5

Dear Friends,

Welcome, and thank you for viewing my website where you can find updates on my fundraising events, endorsements, and my views on Anaheim issues.

For those of you who don’t know me my parents settled in Anaheim in 1941, where my dad was active in the local citrus industry. I was born, and raised here in Anaheim running around parks and orange groves.

My passion is in our parks and our neighborhoods not only in the 5th District, but in all of Anaheim. I love this city, and keeping the city safe and prosperous means a great deal to me.

This campaign website remains in operation as some of the activities I participate in and the actions I take are not part of my elected duties and may help you to get to know me better.

I welcome your feedback and comments on my work and actions. Thank you again for viewing my website.

Orange County Register Endorses Steve Faessel

Orange County Register | November 2, 2016 - In Anaheim’s City Council, District 5, race, we endorse Steve Faessel. In addition to nearly 30 years of experience as an executive of Ace Hardware, Faessel has had extensive involvement in community groups and on local government boards such as the Anaheim Public Utilities Board, Planning Commission and Budget, Investment and Technology Commission. Although we strongly disagree with his enthusiasm for the luxury hotel subsidy, we have broad agreement on a number of other issues.


Thank you to Anaheim Community Services for planning this wonderful event. I was honored to be invited and to personally thank Anaheim staff for all of their hard work.Today Mayor Harry Sidhu joined council colleagues Denise Barnes, Stephen Faessel and Trevor O'Neil and city leaders for an appreciation lunch to honor the hundreds of Anaheim employees and city partners who helped in our efforts to address homelessness over the past several months.

Employees from every single city department worked tirelessly on behalf of our residents and businesses, building three shelters in 70 days and helping hundreds of people off our streets and into housing.

Of course, our work continues, but it was good to take a moment to appreciate how far we have come, working as a team.

"If we made any of this look easy, it is because of all the dedicated people at the city of Anaheim and our partners," Mayor Sidhu said. "I want to thank you, sincerely. You made this happen and showed a genuine concern for those in need and for the residents, students and businesses and many others we serve."
