Irvine Vice Mayor Larry Agran Announces Mayoral Campaign


Irvine City Councilman Larry Agran

Former Irvine Mayor and current Vice Mayor Larry Agran has announced his 2024 Mayoral candidacy in a campaign video that was released through social media and shared with his supporters.

In the video, Agran outlines his position on a number of critical issues facing our City, including:

  • Closure of the All American Asphalt plant: Since joining the Council in December 2020, Agran — a longtime Irvine public interest attorney — fought alongside north Irvine residents to make sure the City’s largest industrial polluter was shut down. Thanks in large part to Agran’s perseverance, the plant has now been closed and the property is being restored to its original state so that it can become part of a magnificent 700-acre “Gateway Preserve.”
  • Veterans Memorial Park: Agran has led the years-long effort to implement the voter-approved project which is now under construction at the northern edge of the Great Park.
  • District Elections: Agran has led a multi-year struggle to expand the City Council from five members to seven members — while transitioning to a system of district elections to ensure that every part of town has its own Council representative. Irvine voters will have the final say on the district election proposal in the March 5th election.
  • Orange County Power Authority (OCPA): Agran, a longtime environmental leader, has been an outspoken critic of the scandal-ridden OCPA since taking office in December 2020. He has continued to advocate for Irvine taxpayers and electricity ratepayers, urging the City’s withdrawal from the costly OCPA.

Vice Mayor Agran’s campaign video also recaps his long history of drafting and implementing policies to improve the quality of life for Irvine residents. Agran says that he is running for Mayor “to redeem Irvine’s promise as the best-planned city in America by investing in projects that benefit all Irvine citizens.”

Agran’s announced opponent in the race is Councilmember Tammy Kim. The two candidates have polar opposite views on all of Agran’s top priorities. (Councilmember Kim dismissed residents’ concerns regarding the asphalt plant; she fought against the Veterans Memorial Park; she is opposed to district elections; and she fully supports OCPA.)

Even though Irvine’s Mayoral election won’t take place until November 2024, Irvine Community News & Views will begin following both announced candidates — and any others who enter the race — in the months ahead.
