Irvine city commissioner Melissa Fox has announced that’s she’s a candidate for Irvine City Council.  Here’s her letter to supporters that came out this morning:

I am running for Irvine City Council.

I love Irvine. Our beautiful parks, our thriving communities, our small businesses, our first-rate schools, our dedicated and professional police department and low crime rate have for many years made Irvine a role model for other cities.

I am a business owner, attorney and City Commissioner, and understand the relationship between strong, pro-resident leadership and our quality of life in Irvine.

I have shown that I can succeed in bringing people together to solve problems and achieve real results for our city.

When I ran for Irvine City Council in 2014, I was only 210 votes (less than half of one percent) short of victory. This year I am confident that we will win and return Irvine to its place as a model city for California and the nation.

To win, I need your help. Your maximum contribution of $470 – or a pledge of $47 a month – will help us build a campaign that will put us over the top in November. A contribution of any amount will have an immediate positive impact and let everyone know you are on our team.

Join me!  Let’s move Irvine forward together!

Melissa joins a crowded field of Democrats running for City Council that includes Shiva Farivar and Farrah Khan.  Fox was a leader in working with Veteran’s groups to gain community support help make the Veteran’s Cemetery and Memorial a reality.

Irvine Republicans don’t have Larry Agran to attack this cycle and with a presidential year looming and Irvine Council member Christina Shea facing an FPPC investigation and is the subject of a state audit about politicizing the Great Park audit, Irvine Democrats have a chance to take back the majority.
