Check back tomorrow morning for the latest installment of the Voice of OC/Probolsky Research poll showing numbers and analysis in the race for Treasurer/Tax Collector.
Following the $7 million judgement against incumbent Chriss Street – who decided last month to avoid running for re-election – there’s a host of political unknowns vying to take over one the county’s most important, and in recent decades controversial, seats.
Few knew what a public treasurer even did before the 1994 municipal bankruptcy in Orange County catapulted the office into the national spotlight. County Supervisor John Moorlach ran the office for more than a decade before stepping down in 2006 and handing the reigns to Street, a decision he’s since regretted.
