This week on PBS SoCaL, we delve into a looming confrontation over Orange County’s retirement system, which heated up when county supervisors appointed retired Newport Beach developer David Ball to the system’s board.
Some agencies, such as the Orange County Superior Court, are now exploring whether to leave the county’s system, arguing that Orange County’s rates are getting out of hand and are fueled by political ideology.
We also discuss:
- The county exploring policies that could speed up the destruction of potentially dangerous dogs.
- A dust-up over how the son of Garden Grove’s mayor is reportedly slated to be hired as a firefighter in that city despite failing a key interview.
- A debate over how Anaheim’s public spending is allocated between rich and poor neighborhoods.
Voice of OC’s weekly news segments are broadcast on PBS SoCaL Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 p.m.
