The Spirit of Christmas

“For the spirit of Christmas knows no race, no creed, no clime, no limitation of time or space.

Yes, the spirit of Christmas breathes an eternal message of peace and goodwill to all men.” 

President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

During this special time of the year, I am filled with joy and gratitude for all of our blessings.

Michael, Max, Chief and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a joyous Holiday Season!

Orange County Fire Authority by the Numbers in 2017 (to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”)

I have had the honor of serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) this year.

The men and women who comprise Irvine’s firefighting, fire suppression, and emergency response force are some of the most dedicated and bravest people I’ve ever met.

They also have a great sense of humor.

Here is a short video that they made to the story of OCFA in 2017, based on “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”

I would like to share it with you.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to the brave men and women of OCFA!
