Mike Giancola Appointed New Orange County CEO — and Much More From the Board of Supes

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

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
