“It’s so disappointing to see Orange County developers and right wing conservatives trying to make a desperate last minute attempt to buy this election,” said Farrah N. Khan. “This SuperPac is exploiting the Citizen’s United Supreme Court loop hole by depriving the City Council from having a real conversation about traffic congestion, overcrowding in our local schools, and how unchecked development growth is reducing our quality of life and hurting our children.”
Farrah N. Khan is a leading candidate for the Irvine City Council election on the November 8, 2016 General Election Ballot.
Mrs. Khan is the Executive Director of the Newport Irvine Mesa Interfaith Council, former Irvine Community Services Commissioner, retired biotechnology executive, and small business owner in Irvine.
She has been endorsed by Former Irvine Mayor Sukhee Kang, State Controller Betty Yee, Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s (PCCC) 2016 Power List, Democratic Party of Orange County and the California Democratic Party.
