Meet Our Special Guests:

Dana Point Mayor Debra LewisMessage from Dana Point Mayor Debra Lewis:

We deserve a city that puts residents first and works to preserve our quality of life. We deserve a city that is fiscally responsible. We must build on Measure H’s success and ensure a city council that passionately shares the resident’s vision for Dana Point.

Many challenges lie ahead and meeting them successfully requires skillful leaders who will listen to and work for the community. Our success relies on the involvement of our citizens to make their voice known. Join me in discussing the importance of your involvement in local and city government.


Message from San Juan Capistrano Mayor pro Tem, Sergio Farias City Council

I was born and raised in the city of San Juan Capistrano. The son of Mexican immigrants, I was instilled early with the values of hard work and service to one’s community. I attended local public schools and have lived my whole life in the city of San Juan Capistrano. I have been a neighborhood leader and volunteer in San Juan Capistrano for more than a decade, and know first hand the importance of community involvement. Together we have to stay alert, stay involved and be a consistent voice for our community.



Message from Aliso Viejo Council Member Ross Chun

During my first term on the Aliso Viejo City Council, I worked hard to find common ground with my council colleagues to create progress toward a stronger community and growing business environment. I sought positions on county and regional boards, and was elected to leadership roles where I could influence decisions beyond the bounds of Aliso Viejo. Now in my second term, I continue to actively reach out to other elected officials, business leaders and members of the community to address local issues that have an impact on our families, businesses and schools.



Message from Tiffany Ackley, candidate for Mission Viejo City Council

While most of the nation is focused on the upcoming 2018 Congressional and eventually the 2020 Presidential elections, we cannot forget the importance of local elections.  Our county and city elected officials control so much that affect us on a daily basis- from our budget, local schools, streets, to public safety.   As an attorney who has over a decade of experience representing local cities, I understand just how much local politics matter.

I’ve lived in Southern Orange County for most of my life and know the direction our country is taking does not represent our values.  I look forward to discussing how we have the opportunity to make change from the local level all the way up!  Now more than ever we need to make sure we are working together to make a difference.


See you at the meeting!!!
