Speaker: Denah Hoard is the first Executive Director of the Office for Campaign Finance and Ethics Commission, appointed by the OC Board of Supervisors. Ms. Hoard has more than 20 years of public service as an attorney representing public entities, most recently as the Senior Assistant City Attorney for the City of Orange. Prior to the City of Orange, Hoard held positions at California State University, Long Beach and the City of Santa Ana.

Director Hoard started with the Commission in April 2017, after Orange County voters, in June 2016, established a commission to provide oversight of the County’s Campaign Reform Ordinance, Lobbyist Registration and Reporting Ordinance, the Gift Ban Ordinance and Sections 6 and 9 of the County Code of Ethics and Commitment to Public Service (Code of Ethics).

She has overseen the selection of the commissioners and has developed the process to subpoena bank statements of campaign committees, create an independent campaign tracking system and developed an annual ethics training program for County officials and staff.

The commission meets quarterly at the Commission Hearing Room at 10 Civic Center Plaza. The next meeting is July 23, 2018.


Check-in begins at 11:30am, and the event itself begins at noon.
