The cities in District 2 include Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Seal Beach, Fountain Valley (portions of), Buena Park (portions of), Cypress, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Stanton and unincorporated areas of Rossmoor. As you may know, the reason for the Special election is that current Dist. 2 supervisor is Michelle Steel, who will be replacing Harley Rouda as our congressperson for the 48th. (Harley will be back in 2024!)

Previously, she served on the Newport Mesa Unified School District Board of Trustees for 4 years.
 
As Mayor of Costa Mesa, Foley fought for and secured emergency financial assistance and loans for local small businesses struggling to keep their doors open during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her leadership helped many businesses, including South Coast Plaza, find creative ways to safely reopen.
 
Foley is President of The Foley Group, PLC, which is located in Costa Mesa after 20 years in Newport Beach. In 2001 and 2004, she was honored by Women in Leadership and the National Association of Women Business Owners at the annual Remarkable Women Awards event.

Below are results of the election for the HB area

HARLEY’S ELECTION

The results are disappointing but not tragic. The 48th was created to favor Republicans. It was quite an accomplishment to gain the seat in 2018 and dismiss a do nothing Representative that had been contributing next to zero. Harley Rouda served us admirably from 2018 till now. He will be back, with our help. See his statement by clicking this link:https://harleyforcongress.com/media-center/results/

LOCAL ELECTION RESULTS

Dave Min wins seat on the California State Senate! Please see his statement by clicking the link: https://davemin.com/news/victory-announcement/

Regrettably it seems that Deidre Nguyen and Sergio Contreras might not be able to serve.
