It is my honor to serve as County Executive Officer for the County of Orange. Providing the public with easy access and information about our services is a top priority, and our website is designed to assist you in that process.
The County will face a number of exciting challenges in the future, and I strongly encourage you as well as our employees to follow Board agendas and actions since that policy direction is our roadmap to action. (http://www.ocgov.com/supervisors/agenda/supervisorsagenda.asp) In all of our challenges, the Board’s direction and the work of each of our approximately 17,000 employees are the keys to the County’s success.
Here within the County Executive Office is the executive branch of the County government. This office is responsible for providing leadership, vision and a knowledge of emerging trends and issues for the purpose of supporting and implementing Board policy, and to ensure that the County of Orange is operated in an efficient, accountable and responsive manner. The County Executive Officer provides direction to all County agency/department heads assigned to him and provides administrative oversight to those department heads who report directly to the Board.
On the menu bar to your left, you will see a number of tabs that will take you to information areas about the County Executive Office. I hope you will browse through our pages and become better acquainted with County government’s responsibilities to you and the efforts of the Board of Supervisors on your behalf.
