Today, Supervisor Michelle Steel and I successfully passed a motion requesting for a supermajority vote to be required by the Board for any special tax hike proposals. What is the next step? Taxpayers will have the option to vote for the Charter Amendment — on the March 2020 presidential primary ballot — if they want the taxpayer protection brought forward today to pass. Many cities have a supermajority requirement in place; let's put more stringent requirements on elected officials before digging into our hardworking citizens' pocketbooks.

Orange County residents pay too much in taxes. Supervisor Michelle Steel and I worked together to fix this by directing a Charter Amendment for Orange County. We want to offer taxpayers protection by placing a higher threshold on passing special taxes.
Today at the Board of Supervisors meeting, I'm proud to say the Charter Amendment item passed 5-0 and will go before the voters to decide on the March 3, 2020, presidential primary election ballot. A supermajority on the ballot ensures a proposed tax has widespread support.
Additionally, it puts more stringent requirements on elected officials before digging into our hardworking citizens' pocketbooks.

Wow at least we know someone is watching out for us since our city elected officials keep gouging us!! Thank you!! Supervisor Don Wagner there is a water tax increase your for discussion today in Santa Ana I’m sure they don’t care if we pay higher taxes. We already pay the highest sales tax due to measure X now they want more!! 😤😤😤
Oh hell yes!!
Thank you. Please help us fix the tax problem that North Tustin residents are facing being charged Santa Ana’s sales tax rate of 9.25% instead of the proper tax rate of 7.75%. That is affecting us now.
Thank you. Will this protect Prop 13 in the OC?
Great news! Nice to know someone is looking out for us.
How is supporting affordable housing as a party being against tax increases? It cost us 20 million alone last year in Santa Ana. How much did Irvine spend in affordable housing?
We retired over 100 flags this morning at the Orange County Fire Authority with Veterans, Boyscouts, and the community in attendence. I am humbled that my job as Supervisor grants me the opportunity to hold this important ceremony, encouraging the values and traditions our flag symbolizes: valor, perserverance, purity, justice, and more.
