Michelle Steel and Board of Supervisors review County budget for FY2021

On September 1st, Michelle Steel, Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, and her fellow Supervisors held hearings for Orange County’s 2020-2021 fiscal year budget. Supervisors examined the County’s seven program areas: public protection; community services; infrastructure & environmental services; general government; capital improvements; debt service; and insurance, reserves and miscellaneous. Straw votes were taken on each of the program’s requested budget restorations or augmentations. The Board of Supervisors will approve the final budget on September 15.

Below is a statement from Chairwoman Steel on the budget:

One year ago, Orange County families never could have dreamt that we’d be dealing with a worldwide pandemic. COVID-19 has devastated families, we’ve seen loved ones lost, front line medical workers pushed to the max, and many small businesses have closed their doors permanently.

Our County team has worked hard to put together a budget that funds critical health and social services and gives our law enforcement agencies the tools they need to keep our community safe and provide oversight. And our law enforcement agencies are doing everything they can to ensure our public safety in a very challenging environment.

We won’t be raising taxes, laying off employees, or emptying our reserves. I want to thank CEO Frank Kim, CFO Michelle Aguirre, the entire budget staff and our department heads and County employees for getting us here.

  1. Who are the independents and critical thinking moderate Democrats going to vote for this year? You have a choice between the chaos Communist Democratic Party Or Patriotic USA Flag loving Republican Party. I feel sorry for the Moderate Democrats because your Party has left you behind. Your party is no longer the Party of JFK, etc……. It is the party of AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ed Markey, Cori Black, Ayanna Pressley, etc……. and the number of Communists are growing within the Democratic Party. The Democrats are the party that has racists, anti-semites walking the halls of the House of Representatives. They keep calling Trump racist. Every 2 to 4 years election years the Democrats start calling everybody running against them racist. You ever notice that. Vote Michelle Steel.
