Make a couple of phone calls.
The OrangeÃ‚Â County Board of Supervisors recently decided to waste taxpayer dollars on a frivolous lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of pension benefits granted to first-responders across the state. Public Safety employees in California are universally granted pension benefits called 3% at 50.
Orange County Second District Supervisor John Moorlach is the mad scientist behind this challenge.Ã‚Â Mr. Moorlach thinks Sheriff Deputies and Fire Fighters make too much money and that the pension benefits they get are to generous.Ã‚Â His colleagues on the Orange County Board of Supervisors all agree with him.
Over the past couple of days more than 3,000 people have visited this website searching for information about the Santiago Canyon wildfire. Please take a moment to give the Orange County Board, and specifically Supervisor Moorlach, a call today and tell them how much you appreciate the heroic efforts of the public safety employees of Orange County and across California to fight the recent wildfires. Tell them to stop wasting time and taxpayer funds on Moorlach’s Folly.Ã‚Â Tell them that you already know that public safety employees are well paid and that’s the way it should be.
While OC first responders are helping keep us safe, the least we can do is make a couple of phone calls on their behalf.
Here are the numbers to call.
Chris Norby, Chairman
John M.W. Moorlach, Vice Chairman
Patricia C. Bates
While you’re at it, you may want to drop an email to Orange County Register Editorial Writer Steven Greenhut, a supporter of Moorlach’s plan, and let him know what you think. firstname.lastname@example.org.
