John Moorlach announced the endorsement of Assemblywoman Janet Nguyen. Having served both on the Board of Supervisors and in the State Senate together Moorlach and Nguyen have been long time colleagues.
“I’m excited to endorse my friend and colleague John Moorlach for County Supervisor. I know firsthand that John has the experience and ability to lead our county through these challenging times” said Nguyen.
Moorlach and Nguyen have teamed up to work on critical issues of addressing homelessness, mental health, balancing budgets and keeping taxes low in the past. Janet’s familiarity with Moorlach’s expertise in good governance make the endorsement that much more impactful.
Moorlach represented District 2 for eight years and prior to that served as the Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector for 12 years. Moorlach is widely known as a financial expert who helped Orange County exit bankruptcy 25 years ago, then spearheaded a series of adept moves to help the county avoid a fiscal disaster during the Great Recession.
Moorlach has served the past six years in Sacramento as the Legislature’s only member who is trained as a CPA. Targeted by more than $3 million of negative attacks by big government public employee unions, Moorlach came up just short of winning an additional term in the Senate.
The special election for Orange County’s Second District Supervisorial seat will be held on March 9th. The special election will not proceed to a runoff. Instead the highest vote-getter is awarded the seat. For more information visit www.johnmoorlach.com.
