(Santa Ana, CA) — Today, Orange County Supervisors Janet Nguyen and Todd Spitzer proposed that the Board of Supervisors pay their full employee retirement contributions effective immediately.
Supervisors Nguyen and Spitzer have also proposed a charter amendment to be placed before the voters on the June 2014 ballot to make this a permanent requirement for County elected officials. In doing so, future Boards of Supervisors cannot reverse this decision without voter approval.
Orange County Parks received 59 design submittals for consideration for the Orange County Crime Victims Memorial by the September 30 deadline. Open to all, the competition drew broad interest, with 42% of the entries originating internationally from Australia, Mexico, Sweden, Japan, China, and the United Kingdom. In addition, seven of the 59 entries were submitted by students.
"I am so pleased to see the outpouring of interest and dedication to this much needed Crime Victims Memorial here in Orange County," Supervisor Todd Spitzer said. "The level of interest from designers from around the world is a huge statement of how victimization is an issue that affects all walks of life."
