Two important developments this month reflect the dual KCOMM commitment to supporting business as well as government.

We are very pleased to welcome John Cruz to the KCOMM team. John most recently served as Secretary of Appointments for Governor Schwarzenegger. His experience also includes work with important state and federal commissions and panels. With KCOMM, John will help major municipalities, local government, state government and enterprises improve their social media, search engine, newsletter and public relations practices.

On the business side, KCOMM has created and launched a new website for the Orange County Business Council. The council is the leading voice of business on important issues locally, regionally and nationally. It provides a proactive forum for businesses, government and academia to join together to enhance Orange County's economic development and prosperity.
