Katrina Foley wins special election for Orange County Supervisor for District 2

Costa Mesa Mayor Katrina Foley has won the special election for Orange County’s Second Supervisorial District. Foley defeated a field of four candidates to become the first Democratic woman to ever be elected to the board and the first Democrat to represent District #2 in 127 years.

In response to the election results, Foley released the following statement:

“I’m humbled by the support we received tonight and grateful for the confidence voters have placed in me. The challenges we face are serious, but I know that they are no match for the strength and resiliency of Orange County’s residents. There is much work to be done as it relates to speeding up the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine, helping local businesses recover, making county government more transparent, and protecting the things that make Orange County such a special place to live. I can’t wait to get to work.”

  1. Congratulations to Newport Beach Councilman Kevin Muldoon and Fountain Valley Mayor Michael Vo for helping Costa Mesa Mayor Katrina Foley win the seat on the Orange County Board of Supervisors. As many others have written and posted, Muldoon and Vo put their egos ahead of what is good for the Republican Party and the result is that we now have a Democrat in what was once a Republican seat. (Some people have told me that Foley is more of a Socialist than a Democrat; time will tell.)

    Like many Republicans in Orange County’s Second Supervisorial District, my goal was to support the most ELECTABLE Republican and that person was former State Senator John Moorlach. I also felt that based on his years of service to Orange County, Moorlach would do the best job. Yet, if Muldoon or Vo were running in this race as the lone Republican, I would have supported either one. The goal was to ELECT A REPUBLICAN, not placate one’s ego. (Otherwise I should have run for the board!) I hope neither Muldoon nor Vo seek a future office where they will want my vote because it won’t be there. Most Republicans I have spoken with have told me the same thing.
