Costa Mesa leaders endorse Katrina Foley for Orange County Supervisor

Today, five current and four former members of the Costa Mesa City Council announced their support for Mayor Katrina Foley’s campaign for Orange County Supervisor. The group includes Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Andrea Mar; current councilmembers Manuel Chavez, Loren Gameros, Jeff Harlan, and Arlis Reynolds; former mayors Libby Cowan, Linda Dixon, and Mary Hornbuckle; and former Mayor Pro Tem John Stephens.

“Mayor Katrina Foley’s record of service speaks for itself; she has the experience we need on the Board of Supervisors,” remarked Mayor Pro Tem Andrea Marr on announcing her endorsement. “What you can’t tell from a resume is that Katrina cares deeply about the work she does, and brings focus and attention to detail to difficult problems that urgently need solutions. She will make an excellent Supervisor for Orange County.”

“In every role she has taken on, as a businesswoman, attorney, City Councilwoman, and Mayor, Katrina Foley is singularly focused on delivering results,” noted Councilmember Manuel Chavez. “She knows how to get big things done, quickly and efficiently, and that’s what this moment calls for.”

“Mayor Katrina Foley has exemplified outstanding leadership during the COVID-19 crisis, helping our city navigate previously unimagined challenges,” Councilmember Loren Gameros said. “Mayor Foley believes in a science-based approach to public health challenges, and she will be an advocate for commonsense and safety as our next Supervisor.”

“I’m proud to endorse Mayor Foley’s campaign because I have seen up-close the work she has done and the results she has achieved in Costa Mesa,” added Councilmember Jeff Harlan. “Mayor Foley puts people first in everything she does, and that’s the leadership Orange County needs.”

“Serving as an Orange County Supervisor is a huge job, and Mayor Foley is prepared for it,” said Arlis Reynolds. “As a business owner, attorney, former School Board member, former City Councilmember, and our current Mayor, Katrina has valuable experience to immediately make an impact to help our local families and economy.”

  1. If you want a socialist on the Orange County Board of Supervisors, then vote for Katrina Foley. I am not interested in making us a socialist country so I will be voting Republican. Has the Orange County Breeze endorses anyone?

    1. Sindy,

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze, and for taking the time to comment on this article.

      The policy of Orange County Breeze is not to endorse political candidates.

      However, my personal preference is for John Moorlach. The State of California has way, way, way too many Democrats as it stands right now.

      More balance is sorely needed. John Moorlach will provide balance, a solid interpretation of numbers,experience, and a sense of humor.

      Again, thank you for reading Orange County Breeze.
