Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett announces Congressional Campaign in new CA-49

Today, Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett (R) announced her campaign for Congress in California’s new 49th congressional district. The seat is currently held by Rep. Mike Levin (D).

Due to redistricting, CA-49 has shifted from a slight registration advantage for Democrats, to a 50-50 split. The district also includes substantial portions of Bartlett’s 5th supervisorial district.

“Never in my lifetime can I remember a point where Congress was this far out of touch with the everyday experience of working-class Americans and families,” said Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett. “Much like California, our country is headed in the wrong direction and in desperate need of new and common-sense leadership.”

“At a time when families are struggling to pay for gas, put food on the table, and deal with the cost of inflation, Mike Levin is literally cheering on trillions of dollars in government spending, much of which is for pet projects,” Bartlett continued.

“In the face of rising violent crime and brazen smash and grab robberies, Levin has endorsed the same anti-public safety policies, like no cash bail, that are destroying America’s most iconic cities. These are mind-boggling actions given the challenges we are facing, and we deserve better,” Bartlett added.

“Just as I have done during my tenure as Supervisor, I promise to always focus on the issues that matter to you and your family, like quality of life, the economy, public safety, education, and more. This great country has given me everything, and I will do everything I can in return to help get us back on track,” Bartlett concluded.

“Lisa Bartlett’s experience, leadership skills, and values will make her a great representative on behalf of Californians,” said Steve Craig, who will serve as Bartlett’s Finance Chairman also serves as Founder of California Patriots and Interim Chairman of New Majority. “Lisa is the right person, at the right time, to help bring the change so desperately needed in Congress and I am very proud to support her.”

Born and raised in Southern California, Lisa has been a resident of South Orange County for over 30 years. As an executive and businesswoman, she spent decades leading teams, delivering results, and always setting the highest standards of excellence for herself and those around her.

Lisa is the first Japanese American elected to the Orange County Board of Supervisors, starting her first term representing the Fifth District in 2014. She served as Chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors in 2016 and again in 2019. Lisa served two terms as Mayor of the City of Dana Point in 2009 and 2014.

In 2020, Lisa served as President of the California State Association of Counties where she led the 58 California counties through uncertain times.

Lisa serves on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Counties, Orange County Transportation Authority, Orange County Fire Authority, Transportation Corridor Agencies, and South Coast Air Quality Management District. Lisa also serves as a Member of the California Transportation Commission Technical Advisory Committee.

Lisa is a respected leader and will take her years of experience as County Supervisor of the 6th largest county in the United States to help renew California and America, so we prosper for future generations.
