Supervisor Moorlach is a well-regarded voice on major fiscal issues facing our county, state, and nation.
Leave it to insightful, proactive, and provocative Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach to come up with an insightful, proactive, and provocative presentation. Is “Orange County—One Step Forward…”:
When Supervisor Moorlach predicted Orange County’s early 1990’s bankruptcy, he was widely derided—Until the bankruptcy suddenly happened a few months later, and he was brought in as Orange County Treasurer to clean up the financial disaster that he foresaw.
- Paraphrasing Neil Armstrong, as he first set foot on the moon, a small step for man, and a giant leap for mankind (or Orange County)?
- One step forward, and one step back?ne step forward, and a step or two back?
- Part of a larger look at how Orange County’s challenges are reflective of California’s (and America’s)? And is termed-out Supervisor Moorlach being called to a much greater leadership stage?
Additionally, over the last eight years as County Supervisor, he has been a loud and clear voice on major fiscal issues facing the county, state, and the nation. He is a prominent long-time advocate for public employee pension reform and serves on the California Foundation for Fiscal Responsibility Advisory Board. In short, the Supervisor, utilizing his CPA and CFP capabilities, is a unique official—A leader who understands all of the nuances of the often blurred and ignored details of government, including the human impact, a man who refuses to compromise core values for unsustainable immediate policy.
Supervisor Moorlach is a long-term presenter at the Harvard Leadership Series, with a devoted following, eager to learn what’s been accomplished in the past year, and what our immediate and long-term futures hold in store for us…And how we can act, now, to improve those individual and collective destinies.
Oh…And Supervisor Moorlach is extremely personable, eagerly engaging constituents, OC residents, and everyone else in healthy dialogue, showing that disagreeing does not mean being disagreeable.
Reserve your space, now, as Supervisor Moorlach’s presentation is sure to be packed and may very well sell out.
