Tavoularis Launches 2022 Campaign for
Orange Council District 3 Seat with $50,000 Raised
Councilwoman is Endorsed by OC Sheriff Barnes and OC Supervisor Wagner
ORANGE, CA – Today, Orange City Councilwoman Kathy Tavoularis officially launched her 2022 campaign for the District 3 Council seat. Tavoularis has already raised $50,000 for the campaign and will work hard in the new year to ensure she has the additional funds necessary to have an informed conversation with District 3 voters. She also announced the endorsements of Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes and Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner.
“I’ve worked closely with Kathy, and I know she is committed to keeping Orange safe,” Sheriff Barnes said. “Kathy has been a tireless advocate for commonsense policies that hold accountable those who break our law and protect residents and local business. I strongly endorse Kathy Tavoularis for Orange City Council.”
“Kathy is a proven taxpayer watchdog, and she is ensuring fiscally responsible government in Orange,” said Supervisor Wagner. “I’ve seen firsthand how Kathy fights to protect the taxpayers. I’m proud to endorse Kathy Tavoularis for Orange City Council. She has already established herself as a serious policymaker in the city.”
A resident of Orange District 3 for over 40 years, Kathy Tavoularis has represented the district on the City Council since being appointed in April 2021 to fill a vacant seat. An immigrant to the United States, Kathy is a graduate of Orange Unified School District elementary, junior high, and high schools and went on to earn her bachelor’s degree at Cal State Long Beach.
On the City Council, Kathy is a champion of public safety and is working to combat homelessness, unburden Orange families and businesses from excessive taxation, and be a voice for the community in overseeing the future of the Village at Orange Mall and the North Tustin Redevelopment Plan.
Kathy established her own small business in the City of Orange in 2007, which she still runs today. With experience in both the public and private sectors, she has helped bring common sense business solutions to City Hall. Active in her church, Kathy has volunteered at the Orange International Street Fair since her youth and continued to do so as an adult, helping organize voter registration efforts.
Public service is deeply engrained in her family, as her sister is currently an attorney for the County of Orange, and her brother, Peter Tavoularis, was a teacher and coach at Orange High School for eighteen years, where his students affectionately knew him as “Coach T,” until his unexpected recent passing.
