ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Laguna Hills Councilwoman Melody Carruth, along with Lake Forest Councilman Dwight Robinson, join the growing list of South Orange County leaders endorsing Laguna Niguel Mayor Robert Ming for Orange County Supervisor. Ming is running for the Fifth District Supervisor’s seat being vacated in 2014 by the term-limited Patricia Bates.
With the addition of Robinson, and Carruth, 18 current Councilmembers from eight Fifth District cities have endorsed Robert Ming for Supervisor.
“Robert Ming is a critical South County leader, whom I deeply respect and proudly endorse for Supervisor,” Carruth, the founding mayor of Laguna Hills, said. “As a colleague on the Transportation Corridor Agency Board of Directors, I know Orange County can count on Robert Ming to ask the tough questions in pursuit of good public policy.”
Ming is well-recognized by fellow City Councilmembers across Orange County for his regional leadership as a pivotal figure in the Association of California Cities-Orange County (ACC-OC).
“Robert Ming is one of Orange County’s leading conservatives, having served as founding President of ACC-OC and currently chairing ACC-OC’s Pension Reform Committee,” Councilmember Robinson said. “I enthusiastically endorse Robert for Orange County Supervisor.”
First elected to the Laguna Niguel City Council in 2006, Ming is currently serving his second term as Mayor.
Born and raised in Orange County, Mayor Robert Ming and his wife Susie have been married for 21 years and have four children. Ming is Senior Vice President and Associate General Counsel at an international brokerage and investment banking firm, and president of Laguna Niguel’s Military Support Foundation. The Fifth District includes the South County cities of Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, and San Juan Capistrano, along with the community of Shady Canyon in the City of Irvine and the unincorporated communities of Coto de Caza, Ladera Ranch, Las Flores, and Wagon Wheel.
