NEW VISION IN LEADERSHIP
Everyday, the hard working people of Orange County sacrifice to make a living, provide for their families, and make our economy run. The COVID-19 pandemic and response has placed a burden on families, businesses, and our communities as a whole.
I am Mayor Michael Vo. I am the story of refugee to public servant, from communism to freedom. As I fled communist Vietnam and found shelter in a refugee camp at the age of 17, I experienced being left in the cold and going to bed with an empty stomach. I know and understand your story of being a parent working multiple jobs to provide for your family, being a business owner struggling to stay afloat and make payroll, and stretching each dollar as far as it will go. I understand your struggles - I have lived them.
In 1980, my family was interviewed by the U.S. Immigration Officer who would determine if we could seek sanctuary in the refugee camp. I promised to myself - if the United States of America saves us, I will do all that I can to give back when I reach the Land of the Free - and that is exactly what I have done. I started my business 30 years ago providing much needed services to our community, and for the past decade I have given back to this Country that gave me everything by serving as Mayor and Councilmember.
As an experienced public official, I have contributed my real world experiences to the crucial policy making process. As your Supervisor, I pledge to:
Support and increase robust public safety efforts
Aid and support our small businesses and local economy
Champion fiscal responsibility
Fully fund senior and veteran services programs
Address the homelessness crisis
