Bill Orton listed with SmartVoter.org; to speak at OC Dem Convention      Assembly candidate WILLIAM R. "BILL" ORTON (D-Seal Beach) joins candidates from across the state as a participant in the California League of Women Voters website, which offers voters basic biographical information, top priorities and position statements by those seeking state and national office.
"The League of Women Voters website is an important path to open government," said Orton. "This is the value of our first amendment, for while the League is not publishing a newspaper, their website strikes at the heart of how you keep the public informed and politicians accountable."
On his LWV webpage, Orton listed his three top priorities as:
-- Clean up OC's beaches by upgrading sewers, storm drains and waste treatment plants.
-- Create a refundable tax-credit for joint filing households with a "stay-at-home" parent
-- Waive state fees for veterans applying for hunting or fishing licenses
