Supervisor Do speaks on homelessness

A presentation on homelessness in Garden Grove and Orange County will be made on Thursday when Orange County First District Supervisor Andrew Do speaks to a gathering at 6 p.m. on the patio of the 102 Café, 12908 Main St., Garden Grove.

Garden Grove Neighborhood Association and the Garden Grove Downtown Business Association will host the “Meet on Main – Homeless Edition.” This is the second of four forums on issues relating to transients in the area.

Voting rights issue on WSD agenda

In a closed session as part of Thursday’s meeting of the Westminster School District, the WSD Board of Trustees will confer with its legal counsel about receipt of a demand made under the California Voting Rights Act of 2001.

The CVRA has been invoked in other areas – including the Garden Grove Unified School District and the City of Garden Grove – to overturn long-standing “at-large” elections for governing board and city council. The CVRA has been employed to argue that voting citywide or district-wide for elected officials dilutes the political power of minority groups.

The WSD board meets in closed session at its offices at 14121 Cedarwood Ave. at 5 p.m., with the public session starting at 7 p.m.
