Stanton CA,  Supervisor John Moorlach visited the Stanton Lions Clubhouse.  He met with the Stanton Lions and had a spirited discussion regarding the funding of local government.  The Supervisor explained how the state has taken away many revenue sources and tools thatlocal government uses to fund services that are important to residents.

Supervisor Moorlach went on to explain that the County of Orange is currently in a legal battle over revenue from vehicle registration fees; and if the County should loose the legal battle we should expect significant cutbacks in county services.  The county has put away some money in reserves in case this happens.  

During his 30 minutie discussion, he went on to explain that California's budget is not in great shape.  The state is depending on an improved real estate to overcome it's current crises.  But high taxes and regulations seem to be driving businesses out of the state.  Moorlach gave a couple of examples of businesses that had been encouraged to re-locate to New Mexico and Arizona.  He made the point that these states are going after these businesses by providing a good business climate, and even having their respected governors call business owners directly.

Moorlach also discussed the impact of prison re-alignment and the impact that's having on our community.

After his presentation, Supervisor Moorlach discussed local issues with Stanton Lions while eating a Strawberry shortcake desert prepared by the Lions Club chief.
