During last week’s Orange County Supervisors meeting, in the midst of debating a strategic financial plan chock full of layoffs and controversial cuts, Chairwoman Janet Nguyen stood up and stretched her legs for a bit, standing over her chair with a somewhat lost look.
At the time, I figured Nguyen was just considering how tough next year would be. What I didn’t know was that she was about to go into labor.
The next day she gave birth to her first son, Thomas Edward Bonikowski III. And little Thomas became the first baby born to a sitting Orange County supervisor.
Who would have thought that a good way to bring on labor would be to sit through a county supervisors meeting?
