Celebrating Our Success!

ackerman_200x200Dear Irvine Neighbor,

Almost ten years ago my wife Linda and I made the decision to move from our home of 29 years in Fullerton to Irvine. Our children were now grown and I represented Irvine in the State Senate.

It was time to start the next chapter of our lives. We chose Irvine because of the city’s commitment to public safety, education, and abundant parks with a focus on youth. Irvine is a well-run city with a heart and an exceptional quality of life.

I spent 25 years in public office as a city councilman, Assemblyman, and State Senator. Linda is active in her position on the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and work in Washington, DC.

I decided to start Irvine Cares to remind residents that this is a great city. For the past decade the city council has been mired in controversy over the redevelopment of the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro.

After a decade of planning, the big dreams for the Great Park are under way. We have a world-class development partner that is financially committed to the Great Park.

In the past two years our City Council has turned a corner charting a direction for the Great Park that is sustainable, beautiful, functional, and affordable.

Irvine Cares is a cheerleader for Irvine. We should be proud of our collective accomplishments. We will maintain a civil tone that educates the community the issues that make our community special.

The Great Park is one important example of Irvine moving forward. Irvine Cares will remind you of many more during the coming months.

Sincerely,

Dick Ackerman
Chairman, Irvine Cares
State Senator & Minority Leader (ret.)
