Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thanks to you, I won my re-election to the Irvine City Council as the highest vote getter! It is gratifying to know how much my service to the community is appreciated.
As I begin my new term, I am hopeful that the twelve years of positive leadership and progress that I have been privileged to be part of will not be reversed by the new City Council. I will continue to use my voice to advocate for the best interests of the community. Irvine is a wonderful city with great people and extraordinary opportunities. Our investments in public safety, parks and open space, programs that engage all segments of our diverse and growing community and partnership with our local educational institutions has helped support a high quality of life for all Irvine residents.
I was fortunate to be instrumental in stopping the El Toro Airport and creating the opportunity to bring the Great Park vision to reality. Never before has a public project of this scale been undertaken in Orange County. With the US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon coming to the Great Park in October 2013, we expect the coming year to be our best yet.
Thanks again for everything you have done to support my efforts as a public official. I will do everything I can over the coming years to keep Irvine moving in a positive direction.
