Vasquez is target of recall effort

GOVERNMENT: He is the second
supervisor to come under such attack. A
drive against Roger Stanton failed.

July 20, 1995


The Orange County Register

Orange County Board of Supervisors Chairman Gaddi Vasquez was served with
recall papers Wednesday, becoming the second supervisor targeted since the
county filed for bankruptcy Dec. 6.

The $250,000 cost of a recall election would be a disservice to voters, Vasquez
said, because he plans to leave office when his term ends in December 1996.

Hume said he's not convinced that Vasquez will step down. Hume's recall papers
say Vasquez:

Failed to take former Treasurer Robert Citron to task for risky investments that led
to the loss of $1.7 billion.

Supported a tax increase to replace Citron's losses.

Voted to settle with the 200 agencies that lost money in the collapsed investment
pool instead of fighting their claim in court.
