Santana wonders whether a $25,000 contribution from the Orange County Board of Supervisors to a county veterans museum at the OC Fairgrounds will be held up by an angry Supervisor Andrew Do, who wants to limit public comment.
Santana notes that another scathing grand jury report on animal control should prompt OC taxpayers to consider downsizing the Orange County Board of Supervisors and their politicized approach toward local government.
Santana challenges county supervisors to address the homeless situation on their front steps by offering the civic center’s homeless community a better transition center at a nearby abandoned bus shelter.
Santana writes that county supervisors are set to reauthorize a murky program – set up to investigate top officials’ misdeeds. Except, no one’s ever heard much about how these are done, how much they cost. And the biggest probe in recent memory, involving the County COO, seems stalled.
Amidst video game violence summits, sea lion legislation, judicial recalls, Voice of OC Publisher Norberto Santana Jr. notes recent grand jury report on county animal shelter is a stark reminder to electeds to stay focused on the job at hand.
