A major theme of my campaign is to ensure that our fundamental values of social justice, equity, and community engagement are the primary considerations in all county decision making. A key component to achieving this vision requires all of us –elected officials in each local government and residents throughout Orange County– to work together to achieve our collective potential. We need to put aside the differences we too often let divide us, and celebrate the diversity that make our community so unique. What better way to embrace the agriculture, artisans, craftspeople, musicians, and creativity in Orange County, bring the whole community together, and create an annual economic boost than a county fair?
That’s what I’d like to see: a fair county and a county fair.
