Elected Mayors In Orange County

November 13, 1987

On Nov. 3, Irvine residents voted to directly elect their mayor. Backers of the initiative, called Measure E, campaigned on the platform that residents in a city the size of Irvine, which has a population exceeding 90,000, should choose their mayor directly. Traditionally the council has decided once a year who will hold the mayor's post. Also on Nov. 3, J. Tillman Williams was elected mayor of Garden Grove by a narrow 18 vote margin. Four other cities in Orange County also have directly elected mayors. They are:

City Mayor Population Term Anaheim Ben Bay 247,000 2 years Santa Ana Daniel Young 227,398 2 years Garden Grove J. Tillman Williams 134,141 2 years Orange Jess Perez 102,000 2 years Westminster Elden Gillespie 72,000 2 years
