Bates Engages With CEOs, Staff
Credit union leaders in Orange County gathered at Eagle Community CU last week to meet with Fifth District County Supervisor Pat Bates.
The event served as an opportunity to become reacquainted with Bates, who previously served in the California Assembly.
As a county supervisor, Bates has worked to protect taxpayers and improve her county’s fiscal outlook, create business-friendly policies to attract jobs, maintain high levels of public safety, shorten the timeline for delivery of transportation projects, implement pension and retiree medical liability reform measures, and protect the coastal environment.
Bates ran unopposed in the primary election within the 36th Senate District, which heavily favors her as a republican. In the upcoming general election, Bates faces a write-in candidate.
The 36th Senate District is a coastal seat, stretching from Rancho Santa Margarita to Encinitas.
