We are proud to present Carolyn Cavecche, who serves as President and CEO of the Orange County Taxpayers Association, as our speaker for the Wednesday, January 16, 2019 meeting at the Marbella Country Club. She will talk to us about the OC Taxpayers Association and her input on California's finances, taxes and the challenges we face with Proposition 13, etc. With over a decade of public policy experience gained from serving on numerous city, county and regional governing boards, she has insight into how government can and should keep taxes "fair, understandable, cost effective and good for business."
