As a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Financial Planner, John Moorlach began his career in public service 30 years ago when he warned that then Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector Robert Citron’s risky investment strategies would lead to serious investment losses. Moorlach’s warnings proved true when Orange County filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection in December 1994, then the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.

He was appointed the county Treasurer-Tax Collector in 1995 and was re-elected in 1996, 1998 and 2002. In 2006, voters elected John to serve in his first of two terms on the Board of Supervisors, where he continued his focus on reforming the county’s budget practices and sounding the alarm on the county’s growing unfunded liabilities.

He served from 2015 to 2020 as the State Senator for the 37th Senate District.

John is now a Senior Fellow and the Director of the Center for Public Accountability at California Policy Center.
