Eight months before the November 2022 election, three members of the current City Council have opened campaign committees to run for re-election.
Last week, Irvine City Councilmember Larry Agran officially announced that he is running to keep his seat on the City Council.
With the pandemic still on the minds of many Irvine residents, Agran chose to announce his re-election campaign through a substantive video announcement that was posted on Agran’s campaign website and on Facebook.
Agran used the video to recap his long history with the City, outline what he’s been working on, and explain why he has decided to run for re-election in November. To visit Agran’s campaign website, click here.
Forgoing a formal announcement, Councilmember Anthony Kuo appears to have quietly opened his 2022 City Council re-election campaign last fall. According to financial documents posted on the City’s website, Kuo raised just under $28,000 last year in campaign donations. To visit Kuo’s campaign website, click here.
Mayor Farrah Khan publicly announced her Mayoral re-election campaign late last year via social media and through an email message sent to supporters. According to the City’s website, Khan has been raising money for the 2022 election since last spring. She reported just under $95,000 in political donations through the end of 2021.

The other two members of the current City Council — Mike Carroll and Tammy Kim — are not up for re-election until 2024. However, both Carroll and Kim have already opened their 2024 re-election campaign committees.
