Electing Focused Leadership

Kathy Tavoularis

Bringing Trusted & Responsible Government To The City Of Orange.

Hi! My name is Kathy Tavoularis.

On April 19, 2021 I was appointed to the Orange City Council, District 3 by a majority of the Orange City Council after a Council resignation and application process by the City of Orange.

It was an event I didn’t plan for or expect.

I have always worked behind the scenes to help elect worthy candidates across the spectrum, never aspiring to be one myself. But, after my older brother, Peter Tavoularis, unexpectedly passed away in October 2020, and knowing how much Orange meant to him as a teacher and coach at Orange High School for eighteen years, I started to view my life from a different angle. I wanted to give back to places who have helped me become who I am.

Orange has been my home for 41 years. I am a product of the Orange Unified School District, having attended Taft Elementary, Peralta Junior High, and Villa Park High School. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with an emphasis in Politics and Policy Formation from the California State University at Long Beach.

As a child of Greek immigrants, I began volunteering at the Orange International Street Fair from a young age, with St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church. Later I volunteered and organized booths to register voters at the Street Fair. Being active in the community taught me the importance of small-town community civic leadership.

After spending over a decade as an advisor to government leaders in southern California, I founded my own public affairs consulting firm, based in the City of Orange in 2007. I have managed multi-million-dollar projects, overseeing hundreds of staff on behalf of a wide breadth of non-profit and private sector clients.

I was a nominee for the Orange County Business Journal’s “Women in Business” Award, and honored as “Woman of the Year,” by the California State Senate. I have appeared in Human Events, the Orange County Register, and on CNN.

I strive to be a champion of public safety and will work to combat homelessness, unburden Orange families and businesses from excessive taxation, and be a strong voice in overseeing the future of the Village at Orange Mall and the North Tustin Redevelopment Plan.

I ask for your Vote and support.
