emergency trip to Sacramento
OC Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Campbell, Assistant CEO Bob Franz, and Orange County Employee Association General Manager Nick Berardino made an emergency trip to Sacramento in an attempt to restore $48-million that Orange County lost in this year's State Budget.
The OC representatives met with the Governors Chief of Staff, Budget Director, Assembly Speaker, and the members of the Orange County legislative delegation
While the officials were sympathetic, they repeatedly pointed out the severe budget crisis and the difficulty of restoring any money, according to Berardino.
