Ballot Statement

Name: Rhonda Shader Age: (leave blank)
Occupation: Mayor/Small Businessowner

I proudly call Orange County home: my husband and I raised our children here, and I own my small business here.

In 2016, a City employee embezzled $5,000,000 of taxpayer money. I was outraged, so I ran for office for the first time and was elected as a Councilwoman. Since my election, I helped my city recover from that crime, became Mayor, and delivered results:
Launched our own Fire Department, saving $28,000,000
Created California’s first joint City-County infrastructure district, producing 5,000 high-paying jobs
Streamlined business license processes to help new small businesses
Provided housing for homeless veterans
Grants, flexible City approvals, and other support during COVID

If elected, I will be accessible, holding town hall meetings throughout our district in Anaheim, Buena Park, Fullerton, Garden Grove, La Habra, Orange, Placentia, and Santa Ana.

I respectfully ask for your vote for Rhonda Shader for Senate.
