Mike Giancola accepts CEO position while Sandra Fox looks on

Mike Giancola accepts Supervisors’ unanimous appointment as OC CEO as AFSCME President Sandra Fox (foreground left) looks on.

Just so no one who doesn’t want to has to pay for the story in the Register, the Board of Supervisors unanimously appointed Orange County’s former Waste and Recycling Director Mike Giancola to succeed Tom Mauk as OC’s next permanent CEO.  As you can see from the number of people in the audience wearing teal, lots more happened today as well.  More on this story — or better to say “these stories” — coming soon in updates.


About Greg Diamond

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
