OC Board of Supervisors Full Of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing!
The Orange County Board of supervisors came
into the current term with a fiery agenda rivaled only
by Senator’s Obama’s
spiritual advisor’s Wright ‘s rhetoric -
“Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, the
creeps in this petty county come to roost
from day to day, as if to
the last syllable of recorded time, but we are
here to stop that”, they seemed to say.
On Friday, July 20, 2007 the supervisors
declared that sheriff deputies pensions are illegal. Supervisor John Moorlach, long a union critic, announced his
plan to cut pension benefits retroactively paid to
members of the sheriff's deputies union by arguing
they are an illegal gratuity that must be rescinded.
Such action placed the sheriff's deputies on
the defensive and triggered a legal battle with
potential statewide ramification.
Then in August 2007, Supervisor John Moorlach accuses long time friend and now OC
Treasurer-Tax Collector Chriss Street of falsifying
documents document to cover up an improper award
process on a contract to a private company and asks
him to resign or else the board will force him to
resign. Not only does Street refuse to step down, but earlier this
week a British court ruling
placed a complex $80
million investment by
Treasurer Street in receivership. The
ruling indicates O.C. won't get anything back
until 75 other investors are paid.
Earlier the Supervisors fought Sheriff Carona
on oversight panel culminating February 5, 2008 where
the supervisors approved the creation of the
Office of Independent Review spearheaded by
Supervisor John Moorlach , in the wake of inmate
Chamberlain’s beating death.
Interim Sheriff Sheriff Jack Anderson has
endorsed the plan, echoing reasoning used by Carona
stating that the department already has procedures in
place to record deputies' interactions with the public
Let’s not forget Supervisor Moorlach
passionate plea for a much-deserved pay increase in
Annual compensation received by each member of
the Orange County Board of Supervisors:
