Whats On Deck This Week 6-17-2013

Posted by Former Blogger Chris Emami on June 17, 2013

We are in the midst of budget season for most governmental agencies, which could make for some news stories in the coming weeks of budget cuts vs. tax increases. This makes for slow news days in the short-term in the Orange County Area.


241 Freeway- The only substantive item that sort of effects Orange County this week is the 241 extension meeting. This meeting of the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board could decide the fate of the 241 freeway (toll road) extension. For those interested in making the trip down south to attend the meeting, it will be held at 11:00 AM (Agenda claims a vote will not take place until at least 1:00 PM), location is 9174 Sky Park Court, San Diego, CA.

Calderon- Our fantastic blogger Allen Wilson has done an excellent job covering the ongoing Calderon saga. In his most recent article Allen points out that the investigation appears to be centered on the Central Basin Water District. Stay tuned to the blog for potential breaking news on this subject as it becomes available.

Central Committee Meeting Tonight- Nothing on the agenda appears to be super interesting, but for those interested the Republican Party of Orange County is having their monthly Central Committee meeting tonight. For those interested in attending, it will start at 7:00 PM and is located at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine.

Advertisement Blitz- Now that we are less than a year away from the 2014 Primary Election you can expect to see some new sponsors appear on our blog. We are going to be making a big push on these over the next 30 days.

Welcome Atlas PAC!- Our newest blogger here at OC Political that was just brought on board last week is not actually a person, instead we are lucky enough to have gotten the Atlas PAC organization to agree to having us create a blog account for them.

Campaign Finance Database- We are only $5,000 short of reaching the goal of fully funding the campaign finance database research that I unveiled a few months ago. With any luck we will begin to post these databases in the next three weeks.
