By: Orange County Supervisor Todd Spitzer
As a County Supervisor, Supervisor Spitzer is required to represent Orange County on various boards, commissions and agencies. Each year, the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) travels to New York to attend important meetings with rating agencies and banks. As the Finance and Administration Committee Chairman for OCTA, Spitzer was called on to travel to New York City with OCTA Chairman Shawn Nelson and Chief Executive Officer Darrell Johnson for the annual meeting with financial rating agencies, bond insurers, and underwriters.
The meetings updated the companies on the current status of OCTA’s financial and operating conditions. Spitzer visited AIG, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Barclay’s Capital, Fitch Ratings, JP Morgan, Moody’s Investor Service, and Stantec.
