Irvine is at a crossroads. Perhaps it is more like a tipping point. We need forward-thinking leadership on the City Council to protect and enhance the quality of life we all moved here to enjoy.
My name is Farrah Khan and I’m running for Irvine City Council to ensure that the public interest is protected and to restore respect and civility to the way in which our local government serves the community. I’m a mother, a community leader and a business owner and I believe my experience makes me uniquely qualified to serve.
I’m proud to call Irvine home. My husband and I moved here fourteen years ago to build a life in a city that offered excellent schools, public safety, an abundance of parks, open space and economic opportunity. We are raising four sons, two of whom we are fostering. They all attend Irvine Schools and I am active in the PTA and serve on the School Site Council.
Like many in this community, we are immigrants but proud to be American. Our diversity is one of our greatest strengths as a city. As we grow, it’s time for leaders who care about the public interest and are actively engaging our residents in the civic life of our city.
We are a community of families, innovators, global thinkers, community volunteers, veterans and active seniors. We embrace diversity of culture and faith and model respect for all people. With two seats open on the City Council, we have a chance to elect leaders who will dedicate themselves to the interests of all Irvine residents.
That’s my pledge to you. As your City Council member, I will work for you, the people who have invested to be part of this community…everyday. I’m proud to be endorsed by two former Mayors — Beth Krom and Sukhee Kang — and I respectfully ask for your vote on November 6th.
