Why I am Running
Hi, I am Doug Chaffee, I am serving as Mayor of Fullerton for a second time. I am running for Orange County Supervisor to better address homelessness, public safety, infrastructure improvements, senior services, health care, education and fiscal responsibility. All of these are issues I currently face as Mayor of Fullerton, I believe my experience has best prepared me to serve as your 4th District Supervisor.
Homelessness is a major problem facing Orange County. I plan to find long-term solutions. The County should use the money provided by the Mental Health Services Act to lease or purchase the 184 acre State owned Fairview Developmental Center. Fairview can then be utilized to house the homeless along with providing mental health and social services. If Fairview is not an option, this funding may be used to form public-private partnerships to provide housing and services. We must protect our residents from unfortunate encounters with homeless persons.
I believe in the community policing model where residents and the police work together to report and prevent crime. It is important to stand behind our police and Sheriffs departments to ensure they are equipped with the tools to perform their job successfully.
Clean air, water and open space are essential to our well-being. I believe in preserving our open space and local parks for the community to enjoy. I will fight to keep our environment protected and clean. A special goal is improving access to early childhood education and after school programs. I believe the current Board should reallocate funding to support and expand these services.
I'm ready to work for the people of Anaheim, Brea, Buena Park, Fullerton, La Habra and Placentia as your Fourth District Supervisor. Together we can make Orange County an even better place to live, work and play.
I would be honored to have your vote.
