Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach, who represents the Second District, will be the featured speaker at the second annual State of the County Luncheon at 11:30 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 9, at Old Ranch Country Club. The Second District includes Seal Beach, Los Alamitos, Costa Mesa, Cypress, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Newport Beach, Stanton, Buena Park and Fountain Valley, as well as unincorporated communities such as Rossmoor.
Moorlach, who now serves as chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors and chairman of the OC Local Agency Formation Commission, will focus his remarks on the Second District.
Moorlach has been a controversial figure locally because of his role in the annexation of Sunset Beach by Huntington Beach, his efforts to move Rossmoor into Los Alamitos and his proposal that those two communities be mreged with Seal Beach to create a larger city.
The luncheon is open to the public. The 11-11:45 a.m. V.I.P. reception precedes the luncheon, which is set for noon. Tickets for the luncheon are $30 with tables of eight at $240. Reservations as well as sponsorship opportunities are available through the Cypress Chamber of Commerce office at (714) 827-2430.
Old Ranch Country Club is located at 3901 Lampson Ave., in Seal Beach.
