Amidst the massive forces of: the stalling of climate mitigation measures in the US Congress, the undeniable disruption of Jan 6. insurrection, and the horrific Russian invasion of Ukraine…. we continue covering Orange County June 7th 2022 Primary. We begin with OC Board of Supervisor Katrina Foley, to talk about her campaign for re-election in her brand new Orange County Board of Supervisor District, the 5th District. This new district includes: Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Irvine (south of I-405), Laguna Woods, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, and unincorporated area bounded on the north by the the Antonio Parkway, Oso, and Ortega Highways, and on the south by the San Diego County line.
In the second segment (minute 41:27), picking up where she left off last month, is Brand Lin, co-founder of Irvine Watchdog to spell out the juncture at which business and residential electricity rate-payers are, whom are covered by the Orange County Power Authority. A lot of action folks, not so much sunshine; a lot of climate aspirations, unclear about the agency’s commitment to those goals.
