The leading concerns for Orange County residents reflect those of 2002, not 2007. Today, residents’ top priorities are business retention, job creation, and improving the quality of public schools. Five years ago, residents were most concerned about a triple threat: affording health care, losing businesses, and increasing taxes.
Also top of mind for Orange County residents are community safety and reducing taxes. Making health care more affordable, providing services for senior citizens, making health insurance easier to get are also important issues for residents in the county.
