At Tuesday’s Orange County Board of Supervisors meeting, Board members essentially tripped over one-another to support funding an additional $1.5 million for the Sheriff to process a backlog of about 1,000 Concealed-Carry Weapons permit applications which have resulted from a recent federal court ruling that loosened the standards for establishing need for a permit.
On Monday, the County of Orange Social Services Agency called employees working at the Agency facility located at 840 N. Eckhoff Street in Orange for an urgent meeting to discuss toxic waste tests at the location. It turns out, they’ve found significant levels of perchloroethylene, a known carcinogen, in the ground under the facility.
Around the end of April and early May, Iglesias and her supporters were actively gathering signatures for her independent campaign for Congress. Those supporters included her sister Sylvia a SSA Manager and an SSA employee at the same office as Sylvia (a close family friend to both Iglesias sisters). One of the places that the SSA employee sought signatures was at work. Our investigation has found at this point ten workers, at the Santa Ana Central Regional Office (CRO) of SSA, who were allegedly approached by this employee to sign Cecilia Iglesiasâ€™ nomination petition at the SSA worksite.
Cecilia Iglesias worked in a federally funded position with the Social Services Agency, in violation of the Hatch Act, for 8½ months before she resigned. Her resignation from SSA was likely not voluntary since the only option for SSA was to either dismiss her or forfeit a portion of its federal assistance.
