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

Welcome to our second week! My team and I continued settling into our new office, including getting out in the community with our first event and starting our constituent casework program!

Team Foley!


Read further down to get a better idea of what our constituent managers do.

On Tuesday, I was grateful to attend the Costa Mesa City Council meeting. My warmest thanks to the City staff who put together a fantastic good-bye video, and to local colleagues like Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris, for reflecting on my work in my previous role.

From Tuesday on, my team and I prepared for our first Board meeting next week, and finalized our boards and commissions - which will also be announced next week! We have a number of great individuals who are ready to serve, and I can’t wait to introduce them to you.

Finally, my team and I are closely monitoring the fliers which have popped up around several District 2 cities. I want to be clear: there is no room for hate in our communities, district or our county. I stand unequivocally with every leader who condemns the hate and bigotry these fliers are trying to stoke.

On Sunday, April 11th, I will be joining Huntington Beach Mayor Kim Carr, Councilwoman Natalie Moser, Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris, and Senator Dave Min, for the city’s virtual day of unity. We invite you to join us at 1:00 PM.

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns. We’re here to help.

Warmest regards,

Supervisor, District Two

Orange County Board of Supervisors


Last week, our office assisted with the opening of the Second District's largest vaccination site, located at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa.

The location currently administers over 2,000 appointments per day, and we’ve collaborated with the Orange County Health Care Agency to provide extended hours of operation.

Moving forward, the location will provide extended vaccination hours between 12:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Thursdays, to better accommodate residents unable to get vaccinated during normal working hours.

Beginning Thursday, April 15th, everyone in Orange County aged 16 and up, will be eligible to get vaccinated. Anyone not yet registered is encouraged to do so by visiting

Our team is also continuing to work to increase the number of mobile vaccine PODs available to seniors and our most vulnerable communities. Currently, the County’s mobile team is scheduled to vaccinate approximately 3,000 at-risk residents in the Second District cities of Buena Park, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach and Stanton over the next three months.

We’re working to double that number, so every community in our district has equal access.

All of these efforts are a key part of “Operation Independence”, the County’s  joint effort with the Orange County Fire Department (OCFA) to complete all county vaccinations by July 4th, 2021 - which incidentally, also happens to be the Supervisor’s 100th day in office.

Stay tuned for news about more vaccine sites in District 2 next week.
