The following is a statement from Michelle Steel, Vice Chair of the Orange County Board of Supervisors:
Anti-Semitic terror and attacks at places of worship must not be allowed to continue in this country. My prayers go out to the victims of the latest attacks on Jews celebrating Hanukkah in Monsey, New York, and on Christians attending Church in White Settlement, Texas, and to all those who have been the victims of anti-semitic attacks in the past weeks. Governments on every level must do more to address the growing threat of anti-Semitism and attacks on innocents in places of worship in the United States.
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.
