All my local government knows to do is to using the money to build houses, which is very annoying! More and more people immigrate to Southern California, and the demand of housing increases tremendously. In order to solve the root of the problem, the first thing that the government should do is to strictly limit the quota of new immigrants, so no more new housing development is needed!

There is a demand and supply problem. Many students graduate nowadays, but job supply is limited. Most students work for a minimum wage job or even remain unemployed even though they graduate from colleges! The government should deal with this big problem!
Compared the LA county and San Diego county, there are barely entertainments in Orange County. In this area, all I can see is housing development, which is very terrible! Definitely need a lot of improvement on entertainment in this area!
