Wayne Quint, the longtime president of the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs, is leaving his post and moving on to a job in state government.
The union is losing one of its most passionate defenders just after it won its pension case against the Orange County Supervisors and as it prepares for a monumental contract negotiation with the county.
Investigator Thomas Dominguez has been appointed to succeed Quint, and Deputy Roger Hilton has been appointed to complete the unexpired portion of Qutint’s term.
Quint could not immediately be reached for comment. We’ll have more after we chat with him.
