DANA POINT, CA-Today, Dana Point Mayor Lisa Bartlett, candidate for Orange County Supervisor in the 5th District, announced the endorsements of Mission Viejo Mayor Trish Kelley, Mayor Pro Tem Dave Leckness, and Councilmember Rhonda Reardon. The endorsements of a majority of the Mission Viejo City Council add to a rapidly growing list of local elected officials in South Orange County joining Lisa Bartlett’s campaign following her strong finish in the June Primary Election.
“Lisa is the best choice to represent our communities on the Board of Supervisors. As a Mayor she understands the importance of self governance and the challenges cities face with budget matters when it comes to delivery of municipal services,” said Mayor Trish Kelley.
“Lisa’s experience of running a city for nearly a decade has prepared her to best represent us as our next County Supervisor. She has a deep understanding of the needs and priorities of our region,” said Mayor Pro Tem Dave Leckness.
“As chairwoman of the Foothill Eastern 241 Toll Road agency, Lisa has proven her ability to collaborate with regional leaders to solve problems and move one of our most important transportation projects forward. Her leadership on our board has brought much needed reforms and greater transparency to the way in which our toll roads operate. I’m proud to endorse Lisa Bartlett for Supervisor,” said former Mayor and current Councilmember Rhonda Reardon, the newly elected chairwoman of the Foothill Eastern 241 Toll Road agency.
“Im excited to have the early support of a majority of Councilmembers in Mission Viejo, the largest city in the 5th District, as we begin our campaign for a November victory. Mayor Kelley, Mayor Pro Tem Leckness and Councilmember Reardon know firsthand that I will work closely with our local leaders to ensure county decisions are always in the best interests of our cities,” responded Mayor Lisa Bartlett.
