OC Supervisor Donald P. Wagner to Visit Greater Irvine Chamber Government Affairs Committee
Wednesday, January 29, 2020
Orange County Supervisor Donald P. Wagner will speak with business and community leaders convening for the Greater Irvine Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee meeting on Thursday, Feb. 6, 8 – 9:30 a.m. The meeting is open to the public.
Supervisor Wagner represents nearly 600,000 residents in the thriving communities of Orange County’s Third District: Anaheim Hills, Irvine, Orange, Tustin, North Tustin, Villa Park, Yorba Linda, and the unincorporated canyons. A vigorous advocate of public safety, Supervisor Wagner was elected to public office for his ability to bring people together and solve local challenges.
As a practicing attorney, community college district trustee, state legislator, and past Mayor of Irvine from late 2016 – 2019, Supervisor Wagner’s 20 years in public service reflects an impressive commitment to fiscal responsibility, public safety, educational excellence, and economic growth.
Under Wagner and his City Council colleague's leadership, the Irvine Great Park finally lived up to its name; truly great in both amenities and open space that Orange County residents enjoy year-round. From enhancing parks to easing traffic, Wagner’s accomplishments helped to increase Irvine’s quality of life — all without raising taxes. He balanced the budget, leading Irvine to be recognized with multiple awards for sound fiscal management.
During his six years in the State Assembly, Wagner gained invaluable experience on a wide variety of committees, including: budget, health, education, and revenue and taxation. As the former vice-chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee, Wagner’s committee had jurisdiction over the legal profession, the courts, and most state governing codes. On financial committees, he oversaw all state spending and revenue, quickly earning a reputation for expertise in government fiscal affairs, such that he was twice asked by the Association of California Cities– Orange County to teach government finance and budgeting to local elected officials at University of California, Irvine.
