OC Supervisor Katrina Foley, 2nd District
May 28, 2021 Volume 1 Issue 9
Dear Neighbor:

We lost a little boy in our community last Friday, during an act of road rage.

Six-year-old Aiden Leos was riding in the back seat of his mother’s car on his way to school, when someone opened fire from another car, and Aiden was killed.

By all accounts, Aiden shined joy, showering love and friendship on family and classmates. He loved the color turquoise (also my favorite color), and had just celebrated his sixth birthday a week before the shooting.

His loss is a tragedy we all feel deeply. So, earlier this week, I joined my colleague Supervisor Don Wagner (D3) in a matching $50,000 pledge in reward money, to help bring Aiden’s killer to justice. I’m grateful our efforts and the focus on the case have helped encourage additional community action, with community businesses and leaders pledging their own donations and fundraising efforts, totaling more than $300,000 to date.

But we still need the community’s help.

Last night, the CHP released a new poster showing the vehicle involved in the shooting. They are looking for a 2018-2019 white Volkswagen golf. If you have any information, please call 714-567-6000 or email with any tips or information. Let’s help get justice for Aiden’s family.



Our work also continued throughout the rest of the district!

Over the weekend, my team and I attended several events throughout the district, including a grand opening for Tanaka Farms’s Hana Field in Costa Mesa with Mayor John Stephens and our wonderful Costa Mesa community!

We also helped witness the historic Pride flag raising in the City Huntington Beach, alongside Mayor Kim Carr, Councilwoman Natalie Moser, Councilmember Dan Kalmick and Senator Dave Min. What a joy to see the flag fluttering in the wind and knowing how much it means to me and our community!


We also joined Mayor David Shawver, Councilwoman Van and Councilwoman Warren in the City of Stanton, to help celebrate young artists in the "The World in Our Backyard" art exhibit, and cheered on our student athletes from the Orange Coast League’s golf teams for high school girls and boys finals.

Congratulations to Sydney Ngo who is the New Orange Coast League Champion! Congratulations to Estancia High School Boys who are league champions!


And we continued our vaccine clinics this week. I was proud of our clinic at the Oak View Community Center, and my office and I also joined forces with Senator Dave Min and Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris in supporting Newport Beach Fire’s clinic, where we were able to secure 100 additional doses for the unexpected walk-ups!


We are also continuing to update our community partners, to make sure we’re connecting on what they need for the community. This week, I presented to the Costa Mesa governmental affairs committee, and you can find all updates on our website.

There is so much more we’re continuing to do in the community, and I can’t wait to continue sharing with you.

Please reach out if you have any information or news you’d like to share.


Until next week,

Supervisor, District Two

Happy Friday, District 2!

I wanted to share some numbers with you this week, to show how far we’ve come as we work to get our communities vaccinated.

We’re back to share another Pet of the Week from the Animal Care Shelter at the County of Orange!

Meet Gaga!

 OC Pet Info says: This week’s Pet of the Week is one beautiful lady, Gaga! Gaga is a staff and volunteer favorite who is good natured and good looking. You might not know it when you first see her, but Gaga is 7 years old!

Being a senior doesn't stop her one bit! She is an active gal who enjoys long walks and good butt scratches. Gaga loves to be the center of attention and for that reason, she would do best as the only dog in your life.

Gaga came to OC Animal Care as a stray from the city of Santa Ana back in December of 2020. Because Gaga was brought to OC Animal Care as a stray, we don’t know much about her background. But we do know that she’s ready to find her forever home!

Does Gaga sound like the girl for you? If so, please call 714-935-6848 to schedule an adoption appointment to meet Gaga! 

ANIMAL ID: A1703928
