Today the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to accept 2,500 acres of open space, donated by the Irvine Company to the County for preservation and public recreation. The donation provides additional connectivity to the 20,000 acres the Irvine Company donated to the County in 2010, which marked the largest single donation of land to the County in its history. The land accepted today was previously slated for construction of approximately 5,000 homes.
The Board of Supervisors approved Supervisor Spitzer's ordinance this week with the passage of the second reading for a new ordinance that bans circulating nomination papers to Orange County employees while they are at work.
"I want this ordinance to send a strong message of two things: Number one, don't engage in political conduct on county property. You're more than likely to end up in trouble," Spitzer said. "Number two; don't wait until the last minute to get your signatures."
Supervisor Spitzer was on The Bill Caroll Show on KFI AM 640 talking about recidivism rates since the California State Legislature’s public safety realignment policy began in 2011. A recent report issued by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) found mixed results on shifting the responsibility of more than 30,000 non-violent offenders from the state to the local level.
