WHAT: Will attend the Lake Forest City Council meeting tonight in support of keeping a City Ordinance to maintain a child safety zone in city parks to further protect children from registered sex offenders.

In the past year, the cities of Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Hills, Lake Forest, La Habra, Los Alamitos, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Santa Ana, Seal Beach, Westminster, Yorba Linda, Fountain Valley, and Anaheim passed similar ordinances, and other cities are currently in the process of developing a similar ordinance.
