The following information was released by Michelle Ssteel for Supervisor 2014.
Today, Michelle Steel kicked off her campaign for the Second District on the Orange County Board of Supervisors. The seat is currently held by John Moorlach, who is prohibited from running for reelection due to term limits.
“I am running for Orange County Supervisor because I love and care about the community I live in,” said Michelle Steel, who lives in Surfside and is the leading candidate to replace Moorlach. “In these tough economic times,” continued Steel, “and as governments on all levels are struggling to tighten their belts while preserving excellent service, I believe that my experience as one of California’s fiscal officers, and an advocate for taxpayers, will help keep Orange County on a strong path for economic freedom and sound public policy.”
Michelle Steel has built a reputation as a tough advocate for taxpayers and small businesses on the California Board of Equalization and is currently serving as the Board’s Vice Chair. Representing Orange County for the past six years, she kicks off her campaign boasting an impressive list of campaign co-chairmen.
“I am so thankful and honored to have the support of Orange County’s most trusted leaders, including District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, and former Assemblyman Jim Silva, who have all agreed to serve as honorary co-chairmen for my campaign,” said Michelle Steel.
The election to fill the open Second District Supervisor seat will take place next year on June 3, 2014.

Seoul, South Korea (AP) — A Korean American detained for six months in North Korea has been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for "hostile acts" against the state, the North's media said Thursday — a move that could trigger a visit by a high-profile American if history is any guide. Kenneth Bae, a Washington state man described by friends as a devout Christian and a tour operator, is at least the sixth American detained in North Korea since 2009.
The others eventually were deported or released without serving out their terms, some after trips to Pyongyang by prominent Americans, including former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.http://news.yahoo.com/north-korea-sentences-american-15-years-labor-035931247.html
