Supervisor Spitzer Appointed as Alternate Member on CalOptima Board
The Orange County Grand Jury recommended that the Board of Directors of CalOptima include more than one County Supervisor. Supervisor Spitzer was appointed to serve as that alternate Board of Supervisors member on June 18. Supervisor Janet Nguyen currently serves as the Board of Supervisors member for CalOptima.

Before accepting the appointment, Supervisor Spitzer highlighted recommendations for strengthening the continuity and transparency of CalOptima affairs presented before the Board.

“We need a documented and written report from CalOptima on a monthly basis when items are presented before us,” Spitzer said. “We need to formalize a process.”

CalOptima is a county organized health system that is funded by state and federal government, operated independently by appointment of a Board of Directors.

CalOptima is proud to be considered a national model for county health care (Grand Jury Report).

Supervisor Spitzer Welcomes Bobby McDonald to the OC Veterans Advisory Council
Supervisor Spitzer appointed U.S. Navy and Vietnam Veteran Bobby McDonald as the new Chairman of the Orange County Veterans Advisory Council.

McDonald is active in the community as president of the Black Chamber of Commerce and as former chairman of the California State University of Fullerton Alumni Association. Most recently, McDonald helped deliver four-hundred (400) wheelchairs to wounded warriors at the Long Beach Military Hospital on Memorial Day with the OC Knights of Columbus.

“I’m confident that Bobby will do a fantastic job in fulfilling his role as chairman for this important group,” Spitzer said. “I’m happy to have him aboard!”

Congratulations and best wishes, Mr. McDonald!

Understanding LAFCO’s Role in Unincorporated Woodgate Park
The Board of Supervisors adopted the resolution to approve the proposed levy for park maintenance services at Woodgate Park on Tuesday, June 18. In light of this adoption, Supervisor Spitzer called for the LAFCO review process in this area.

The purpose of LAFCO is to study the provision of services to the land in question. LAFCO does not necessarily direct issues on land use. In fact, there have been cities that have annexed land to preserve open spaces.

In this situation, the role of LAFCO is to assess what best services are available for park maintenance of this parcel with the aim of bringing this unincorporated parcel under Yorba Linda.

“I’d like to start the LAFCO process again so that residents can decide how to best manage this park and make it a part of the city’s municipal services,” Spitzer said.

The Anaheim/OC Job Fair Expo 2013 – “Success Starts With Opportunity, Opportunity Starts Here”
The 2013 Anaheim/OC Job Fair took place on Wednesday, June 19 at the Anaheim Convention Center. More than 200 employers actively seeking to fill 3,419 jobs were in attendance. The jobs available ranged from entry-level to upper-level management in companies from various industries.

A full program was offered for job seekers at the event with career skills workshops and resume reviews.

“I’m proud that a city in my district is hosting such an incredible event,” Spitzer said. “I hope that everyone who attended this job fair walked away with an opportunity or a meaningful relationship with prospective employers.”

In its fifth year since its inception, the Anaheim/OC Job Fair Expo has offered jobs, job assistance, and career development growth to thousands of Southern California residents.
