Here are a few excerpts from Baric’ bio:
A resident of South Orange County since 1987, City Councilman Steve Baric has worked diligently to protect local citizens from criminals and gangs and to protect taxpayers from runaway government spending.
Baric is a former Orange County Gang Prosecutor who has prosecuted the toughest criminal street gangs. In 2008, Mr. Baric organized a group of lawmakers to file a lawsuit to prevent the early release of 50,000 violent felons that ended up being arguing before the United States Supreme Court. In 2005 he was presented with the Diligent Prosecutor award by MADD – Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
In addition to his legal experience, Mr. Baric has also dedicated several years to public service. He currently serves as an elected member of the Rancho Santa Margarita City Council. During his tenure he has worked to support small business owners during the economic downturn as well as providing the best local government services at the lowest cost to taxpayers. Specifically, while on the city council every budget he has approved has had a surplus, he helped pass pension reform and led the effort to create child safety zones to protect kids from sexual predators.
Baric does have his critics. He is apparently allied with former Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle, who is now a full time lobbyist/government consultant.
