According to Allen, “the award highlights my commitment to protecting the autonomy of local governments and my support of Orange County communities.”
The Association of California Cities Orange County is a non-partisan organization that works closely with policy makers to promote common sense solutions for our California cities. They compete with the California League of Cities, which tends to be more liberal in their outlook.
“Assemblyman Allen is a tireless advocate for ACC and local control. He walks his talk by supporting pragmatic and balanced public policy, and fosters collaborative relationships between local elected officials and their state lawmakers,” said Lacy Kelly, CEO of ACC-OC. “For this reason, Allen was a natural choice for our ACC Assembly Legislator of the Year.”
ACC-OC is guided by its three key initiatives, which include: serving as a catalyst for regional collaboration, an educational resource for Orange County city leaders and as the hub for good public policy in Orange County. Learn more about the ACC-OC at www.ACCOC.org.
