ORANGE COUNTY, CA – The Orange County Board of Supervisors approved Supervisor Katrina Foley’s motion to reconcile board policy to align with the recent opinion from the California Attorney General regarding early implementation of Supervisorial District lines. Under this new policy, no restrictions will be placed on any Supervisor to represent the district they were elected to or the district they were appointed to represent.
“The outcome of today’s vote is a win for the rule of law,” said Supervisor Foley. "This is not about politics – this is about the voters who are entitled to their duly-elected representatives. I am excited to return to the district where I live, run my small business, and complete the local initiatives I started before reassignment, including work to address noise and pollution at the airport. It’s also a privilege to serve as appointed caretaker for the newly drawn District 2 where my focus remains to support our county's small businesses, address the homelessness and affordable housing crises, and work with law enforcement to keep Orange County families safe. I hope we can all move forward in service of Orange County in collaboration with all of my colleagues.”
Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley was elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2021 to represent Costa Mesa, Cypress, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Stanton, the unincorporated area of Rossmoor, and portions of Buena Park and Fountain Valley. Following redistricting, the Board appointed her to additionally serve as caretaker for the future District 2, which includes the communities of Santa Ana and portions of Anaheim, Garden Grove, Orange, Tustin, and unincorporated North Tustin.
Supervisor Foley serves on the Airport Ad Hoc Committee & Fly Friendly working group, the Sober Living Home Ad Hoc Committee, and boards of the Orange County Transportation Authority, CalOptima, Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council, Law Library, Newport Bay & South Orange County Watershed Management Area Executive Committees & the Santa Ana River Flood Control Protection.
