We are so grateful to the sturdy residents of Yorba Linda who have been fighting to save their neighborhoods and the State Park. Thanks too to the legal team, Kevin Johnson and Jeanne MacKinnon, who continue to win in Court–even as we lose the vote at the Board of Supervisors on the Esperanza Hills housing project.
Only Supervisor Todd Spitzer voted “NO” having witnessed the evacuation nightmares of the 2008 Freeway Complex Fire and the 2017 Canyon 2 Fire.
It was–quite frankly–a disgusting display by the remaining four Supervisors (Do, Bartlett, Steel and Nelson)–who ultimately opted to approve the project again. They all took the maximum donations from the developer over the years, but only Supervisor Spitzer had the integrity to vote against the project.
