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.
Support for a veterans cemetery in Orange County has been gaining momentum but the obstacle of finding the right location has remained a major road block.
"The Third District is a natural fit to provide a home to a veterans cemetery because it has the canyons and a significant and substantial amount of the most open space in the vicinity of the Marine Corps Air Station El Toro," Spitzer said. "It's time to come together in the Third District to find a viable option. I'm inviting Orange County leaders in the Third District to get the word out that we are in search of a land donation of over 100 acres to build a veterans cemetery."
