The Mayor’s Broken Promises

Last year, Farrah Khan campaigned for Mayor of Irvine, promising to bring transparency, ethics, and democratic values to City Hall.  In just the first three months in office, she's broken those promises.

Upon taking office, Khan implemented an anti-democratic rule to restrict members of the Council from adding any item to the agenda without first obtaining a second Councilmember's signature.  (The rule does not apply to Khan, as Mayor.)

Now, she's resorted to dirty politics in an attempt to silence Councilmember Agran from speaking on the Veterans Memorial Park.

We’re Doing Better … But We Aren’t Out of the Woods Yet

The good news is that the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across Orange County has dropped significantly.

However, only 15% of our County's residents have been fully vaccinated, so we must continue to follow the safety protocols until that number dramatically increases. 

The only way out of this global pandemic is through vaccines! We must get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible to save lives and to stop the virus from spreading before more variants are created.

UCI’s New Slate Online: A Completely New Dimension in Dance Concerts

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the production crew for UCI’s New Slate Online dance concert mixed live and pre-recorded material, added music, and then uploaded it on Vimeo for the performance that those of us in the audience watched.  Which scenes were pre-recorded, and which were live?  There was no way to tell.

Taking the unusual “seat in the audience,” in front of my PC at home, I was surprisingly delighted by this very unique spectacle!
