  1. I have 2 questions. Ann Hecht is the director of the Cypress Boys & Girls Club. Is Hecht running to be on the Cypress City Council to get the City of Cypress to give more money to the Cypress B&G Club? She tried before and lost. Will she recluse herself on all votes that have to do with the Cypress B&G Club?

    1. BYS,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      I believe that you are referring to “Anne Hertz” rather than “Ann Hecht.”

      I cannot speak to her motivation for running for Council. However, the law is clear on conflict of interest. Should she be elected to the Council while still Director of the Boys and Girls Club, she would have to recuse herself from any vote dealing with the Boys and Girls Club.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.

      Stay safe, stay healthy!
