|(Orange County, CA) – Today, County Supervisor Shawn Nelson announced his endorsement for former Supervisor John Moorlach in his race for the open 37th Senate District. Nelson also announced that he is serving as Campaign Chairman for Moorlach’s effort, working to help Moorlach win the March 2015 special election.
"John Moorlach is a staunch, pro-taxpayer, pro-business, and government efficiency advocate, and we need him in Sacramento," said Supervisor Nelson. "As Treasurer-Tax Collector, John Moorlach took swift and decisive steps to cut financial losses, reorganize debt, streamline government, and implement a long-term recovery plan. Taxpayers were protected, and our County is now stronger than ever."
"That’s the type of leadership we need in Sacramento–Someone willing to take on entrenched interests and put our State back on a firm pro-taxpayer and pro-business track," concluded Nelson.
Elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2010, Shawn Nelson quickly earned the trust and respect of the County’s business and public safety leaders. Nelson won re-election in June 2014 by a wide margin, and recently completed a term as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.
