John Wayne Airport Town Hall

My John Wayne Airport Town Hall with Newport Beach Mayor Diane Dixon on the morning of Saturday April 6th was a standing-room-only event. The Community Room, City Council Chambers, and overflow seating in the foyer were used to accommodate the over 500 RSVPs. Additionally, the City live-streamed the event so residents could watch.


I want to thank Mayor Dixon, City Manager Grace Leung, and her capable staff for helping put on the largest Town Hall in the County in recent history.

Thank you to all the residents who attended and either submitted questions or made comments at the mic. Since elected to office in 2014, I have unequivocally stood solid with Newport Beach regarding JWA. Rest assured I will continue to do so.

It is important the other four Supervisors hear from you. To ensure all five receive your official correspondence, please send you emails to RESPONSE@OCGOV.COM.

Together we will continue to improve the quality of life to Newport Beach and surrounding communities as it pertains to John Wane Airport.

Again, thank you for your participation in the Town Hall.

Congratulations to New Eagle Scout Matthew Eimers!

Congratulations Eagle Scout Matthew Eimers of Troop 106!

Matthew held his Eagle Court of Honor at the Lido Island Community Room. Only about 4% of all Scouts reach this prestigious accomplishment. I had staff on hand to offer comments and present him with a framed certificate of recognition.

Well-done, Matthew. I’m very proud of you!

4th Annual Chai Society OC Jewish Comedy Night

On March 26th, my staff presented a Certificate of Recognition to Chai Society OC at their 4th Annual Jewish Comedy Night. In collaboration with Chabad Young Professionals, this wonderful group works in service of the Orange County Jewish Community to spread the wellsprings of Jewish Tradition. Congratulations to Chabad of Los Alamitos, Rabbi Shmuel and Bluma Marcus, Suzanne Katz and Chai Society board members for a successful and sold-out event.

Education and Sharing Day Proclamation

It was an honor and a pleasure to proclaim April 16, 2019 National Education and Sharing Day in Orange County. Education and Sharing Day honors the life and work of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson and recognizes the essential value of education to the well-being of the nation, and that a complete education includes ethical and moral values that teach us to be good people and to treat others with care and respect. Thank you to Rabbi Yitzchok Newman, Dean of Hebrew Academy, Rabbi Aron Berkowitz, of Chabad of West Orange County, and Rabbi Eliezer Gurary of Chabad of Chapman University for joining the Board of Supervisors to receive this proclamation.

Happy World Health Day – a great day to check your old medication

Since 1948, April 7 has been designated as World Health Day. It’s a day that brings awareness to medical issues worldwide.

Your friends at OC Waste & Recycling encourage you to use the day to check the status of your prescriptions and over-the-counter medications and properly dispose of those that are expired or unused. Properly disposing of expired and unused medication is very important, to prevent possible ingestion by others and to keep it out of local waters. medication can be accidently ingested by other

Medications can be thrown away. Here’s what to do and what not to do:

DO NOT:                                             

  • Flush down the toilet
  • Put in the garbage disposal
  • Pour down your drain


  • Place pills or liquids in a sealable bag with hot water
  • Add kitty litter or old coffee grounds
  • Seal bag; place it in your trash bin

 If you choose not to throw away your medications, there are various drop-off locations offered throughout Orange County.

                Also, know what to do with sharps, which are devices or objects with corners, edges, or projections capable of cutting or piercing skin or regular waste bags. For example, injections needles and razor blades. Sharps are considered household hazardous waste and should be dealt with carefully. These do not belong in the trash. All four Orange County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers accept sharps. When taking sharps to an HHW Collection Center, place them in a container with a firmly capped lid to prevent any material from falling out.
