This week on PBS SoCaL we delve into the debate over county supervisors’ pensions, along with other hot topics in local government.
As Orange County supervisors increasingly call on public employees to pay more into their pensions, they’re facing uncomfortable questions about their own pay and perks.
And no one is coming under the microscope more than Moorlach, the county’s best-known public pension critic, who also happens to sit atop the most generous public pension benefit of any county supervisor.
We also discuss:
- Many working-class Anaheim residents feeling disconnected from civil society;
- A top county doctor receiving $149,000 in payments from pharmaceutical companies;
- County supervisors holding back on approving a $134-million computer contract with Xerox amid questions about an unexplained $27 million price hike.
Voice of OC’s weekly news segments are broadcast on PBS SoCaL Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 p.m.
