Katrina Foley for Mayor 2018As the City of Costa Mesa Mayor 2016-2017,  I led the city council with a goal of restoring civility during the meetings, including all voices in the public discussions, launching listening tours in our town, working toward unanimous decisions that consider a diverse council, working to restore our depleted police and fire department staffing so we can protect our residents and neighborhoods, and lobbying Sacramento and the County to address the impacts and abuses of bad neighbor recovery homes and our homeless crisis.

Under my leadership, we formed a committee charged with developing plans to make the city more walkable and bike friendly. And the Cultural Arts Committee is working on a Master Plan for the Arts. And of course, as many of you already know, I enthusiastically welcomed the NFL Chargers to our community — which they have embraced.

I care about this community and its residents. I took the helm with a host of revisions to regulations governing local group and sober-living homes in Costa Mesa – including new rules aimed at increasing transparency and preventing occupants who are evicted or otherwise involuntarily discharged from becoming homeless. In the future, I want to see growth better managed and planned to prevent the kind of over development we’ve seen popping up. While I am proud of the progress made on this issue, there remains a great deal to do.
