Memorial Day is the day Americans all around the nation honor the sacrifices veterans have made serving and defending our country. This year, it’s also the perfect moment to acknowledge the service of our local veterans by working together to establish a veterans’ cemetery in Orange County.
As we reported earlier this week, Democratic Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva is introducing legislation to resolve the dispute between the County of Orange and the State of California over VLFAA property tax funds. The enabling legislation will be introduced in the Senate today. The legislation allows Orange County to maintain a balanced budget and avoid further cuts to critical public services provided by the county.
