Oak View Gym Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Today!
Huntington Beach, CA-Today serves as the culmination of a struggle for environmental justice in a community that began 6 years ago. The School District was so proud to work with the AQMD, our pro bono attorneys: Connor, Fletcher, and Hedenkamp, the media, the Ocean View Teachers Association, local activists Oak View ComUNIDAD, and most importantly the school’s neighbors and the Oak View community, who had been been suffering in silence for decades due to governmental apathy and lack of action. Trustee Briscoe and I were proud to lead this action and today will oversee the grand opening and ribbon cutting for the new gymnasium financed by the legal settlement worth $26M with Republic Trash Services. Thank you to the OVSD Board of Trustees who supported me to handle this matter, litigate, negotiate, and settle on behalf of the them, the district, and the children.
