"My wife Betty and I love raising our family in Irvine. We own our small business here and strongly support Irvine Unified School District schools. It has been the honor of my life to serve as Vice Mayor of Irvine and Councilmember," said Carroll.
Since joining the City Council in 2019, Carroll has delivered results. He stopped the development of over 120 high-density homes on a recreational site. He saved funding for Seniors with mobility needs and Irvine school children. He saved the Great Park Balloon from demise. And he passed a 2-year balanced budget.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Carroll has been working daily to protect the City of Irvine and assist residents in need.
"I've held over 20 Town Halls with residents at community centers, senior centers, and at HOA meetings--all throughout our City," said Carroll. "We have provided important information and received helpful input from the community."
Lately Carroll has been holding weekly Town Halls, in a new "virtual meeting format," to provide accurate and up-to-date critical information on COVID-19.
"With 287,000 residents and spanning over 65 square miles, Irvine is the 3rd largest City in the 6th largest County in the United States. We are the Safest City and the Best Financially Managed City in the nation, and we must continue to lead," said Carroll.
"It's been a privilege to serve our community in its hour of need. I would be grateful for your vote so I can continue serving."
