On Friday, February 14th Orange County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Michelle Steel will be joining Supervisor Don Wagner for a press event to present a new potential site for the long-awaited Veterans' Cemetery for Orange County in Anaheim Hills.
“The Board of Supervisors transferred this land to the Cemetery District in 2018 to avoid disputes and create a veterans cemetery as soon as possible,” said Chairwoman Steel. “We are excited to show why it is the best location in the county to lay to rest our nation’s brave veterans, and to honor our allied veterans of the Korean War and Vietnam War.”
Chairwoman Steel and Supervisor Wagner will be joined by local veterans and media, and will take a tour across the site.
First elected to the Orange County Board of Supervisors in 2014, Michelle Steel represents the residents of the Second District, which includes, Costa Mesa, Cypress, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Stanton, the unincorporated area of Rossmoor, and portions of Buena Park and Fountain Valley. Steel, a successful businesswoman and renowned taxpayer advocate, previously served as Vice Chair of the State Board of Equalization where she represented more than eight million people in Southern California, including all of Orange County, as one of the state’s 12 constitutional officers.
