Orange Mayor Tita Smith

"I am happy to endorse Adrienne Gladson for election to the Orange City Council."  Mayor Smith said in a statement, "Adrienne’s experience as my appointed Planning Commissioner for seven years has well prepared her to make land use and development decisions that will move Orange’s economy forward, and protect our financial stability. Adrienne is deeply rooted in our City’s passion for preserving Orange’s history, including sustaining our many vibrant  neighborhoods, homegrown businesses old and new, treasured parks, roads, trails and open spaces. Adrienne’s impressive record of Orange leadership and volunteerism now naturally leads to her representing all of us on the Orange City Council. Please join me in supporting Adrienne Gladson this November."

Former Mayor Carolyn Cavecche

"I'm very pleased to endorse Adrienne Gladson for Orange City Council.  As a former mayor, I know that Adrienne will protect Orange taxpayers and put our residents first.  She will bring change to City Hall and work hard to keep our neighborhoods safe. Her experience as a Planning Commissioner and longtime community volunteer who understands the unique character of our great city, makes her the right choice for Orange, and I hope you’ll join me in supporting her this November."

Former Mayor Pro Tem Dan Slater

"Adrienne experience on the Planning Commission is exactly what we need on the Council this November.   We need someone who understands the rules, expects them to be followed, and has to ask no one how to vote. She will hold City Hall and developers accountable. Her heart is not seeking office for personal gain but to serve Orange first in order to keep it strong.   I strongly endorse Adrienne Gladson and will be voting for her on November 6th."

OUSD Trustee/ Vice President, Kathy Moffat

"The City of Orange is fortunate to have had the dedicated service of Adrienne as a member of the Orange Planning Commission. As a professional in the field of planning and land use, Orange benefits from not only her love of the city and her dedication to its residents, but also her deep understanding of planning issues. The lesson we know at OUSD is to serve families, just like the City Council does, and a strong cooperative relationship between are two entities is crucial. Adrienne's ability to listen to the needs of citizens, think clearly and positivity about solutions, and to pursue their implementation

is just the perfect combination for the City Council of Orange.   I support and endorse Adrienne Gladson for the Orange City Council."
