Mansoor Enters Race for Costa Mesa City Council District 5
Will Not Run for Mayor of Costa Mesa

COSTA MESA, CA (July 24, 2018) – Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Allan Mansoor announced his entry today into the race for the District 5 seat on the City Council. With his long-standing record of service to the residents of Costa Mesa, Mansoor becomes the immediate front-runner in Council District 5.

“I’m running for Council District 5 because I want to make sure Janniffer and I can raise our three children, Avalon Jane, Joshua Dayton, and August Alexander, in a neighborhood where they are safe, and can play in the parks of our city, just like I did growing up,” Mansoor said. “It is critical that we have experienced individuals on the City Council. It became increasingly clear to me that none of the other candidates in District 5 have the experience necessary to ensure we preserve Costa Mesa’s way of life.”

In choosing to run for Council District 5, Mansoor will not be running for Mayor in 2018.

“My children have not yet reached school-age, and I want to cherish this time I have with them. My three children are simply too young for me to run for Mayor in 2018,” said Mansoor. “I know the obligations and responsibilities of the Mayor’s seat well, having served in that office when I was a single man. Continuing on the City Council allows me to continue in public service while balancing the needs of my wife and our three young children.”

Allan Mansoor has served on the Costa Mesa City Council since 2016 after previously serving from 2002 to 2010, including three times as Mayor. A retired Orange County Deputy Sheriff and former State Assemblyman, he has dedicated his career to public service. Mansoor first moved to Costa Mesa at the age of 12 when his family came to the city. Mansoor and his wife, Janniffer, are raising their three young children in Costa Mesa, where the family attends church and are involved in the many community service programs available to Costa Mesa residents.
