This week’s Orange County Post cover said that Legislator Katie Bonelli is the fist Orange County Legislature Chairperson. Actually, democrat Roxanne Donnery was also a Chairperson of the Legislature in 2009. We regret the error.
Both have had a huge impact on Orange County government. The error occurred after a search of whether Donnery was ever County Executive, which she attempted in 2013, Steve Neuhause won in a hard fought contest with a 12% majority.
Whether Bonelli retains the Chair position for 2022 will be determined during reorganization in January.
