PRESS RELEASE: Vice Chairman Doug Chaffee Hosts Third Annual Fourth District Kindness Award 

 Santa Ana, CA. (November 15, 2021)Vice Chairman Doug Chaffee, Supervisor for the Fourth District, hosted the Third Annual Fourth District Kindness Awards Ceremony on Saturday, November 13 at the City of La Habra’s City Hall Atrium.

Following the Former Mayor Tom Tait’s initiative to encourage acts of kindness in the City of Anaheim, Vice Chairman Chaffee asked residents to nominate individuals who display exceptional kindness and/or community service and who live, work, or volunteer in the Fourth District. 

Kindness is often defined as doing something to help another person without the expectation of receiving anything in return,” said Vice Chairman Chaffee. “After former Mayor Tom Tait promoted Anaheim as the City of Kindness, I was inspired to recognize the individuals in my District who have displayed exceptional kindness or community service.” 

A panel of judges scored the nominees' applications: The Honorable Tom Tait, The Honorable Bill Steiner, Charles Barfield, Joe Pak, and Lorena Moreno. After the judges scored the applications, an honoree with the highest application score was chosen from each city in the Fourth District. 

The honorees for the Third Annual Fourth District Kindness Awards were: Erika Robles from the City of Anaheim, Kiara Smith from the City of Brea, Christiane Salts from the City of Buena Park, the Debbie Adams from the City of Fullerton, Shrey Gandhi and Christian Lee from the City of La Habra, and Rosalina Davis from the City of Placentia. 

Vice Chairman Chaffee also awarded Scott Miller from the City of La Habra with the Honorary Kindness Award.
