Other facts

I am an 11-year resident of Aliso Viejo, and I have volunteered for the Aliso Viejo Community Association for 10 of those years. I have served as the Board President four times, and was appointed to the Aliso Viejo Planning Commission by the City Council. I founded the Sustainability Forum in Aliso Viejo 3 years ago, and my company has held the event each year since, bringing in local companies, public utilities, non-profit entities and educators from around Orange County to participate in the event.

Ross Chun is the communities pro-business, fiscal conservative, and most unbiased leader Aliso Viejo has seen running for City Council in many years. He supports AVCA running the parks and not a beleiver of double taxation as described from the halls of the City. He listens to diverse opinions from all sides and renders an unbiased decision for all residents, not just for a few. He would never support tripling City expenditures from reserves without a justified investgation from all members of the council. Lastly, Ross Chun was not only a member but also leader of AVCA, the largest association in the United States, and a charter member of the Aliso Viejo Planning Commission; terminated by proposal of Mayor Garcia and approved by his council majority. Aliso Viejo is the only city in 34 communities of Orange County without a Planning Commission. I support Ross Chun for City Council, hope you do also.

Mr. Chun volunteers his time to help the schools and our community. He works tirelessly for the schools, and he can be seen at our movies and concerts pitching in with his family.

Mr. Chun supports local businesses with exceptional effort, and continues to support green companies. The important part is that he helps all to find a way of helping the environment. Stay Green. Vote for Chun.

Ross Chun was the President of AVCA for many years, not just a volunteer. A volunteer who lead the charge for safe parks, clean parks and great events. He has kept our association fees low and reasonable.

I agree with all the above posts! I love the beautiful parks and open spaces in our community. As President of AVCA, Mr. Chun made sure that our parks were utilized for wonderful family events in addition to being beautiful and up to code. He and his family participate in many of these events. He really cares about our community and keep us as "green" as possible! I know Ross Chun will do a great job as one of our City Council members!

I would be most interested to see all City Council canadidate statements in the patch, including incumbents. Incumbents over past years fail to make their plans public for our community to react and respond. I would suggest a public candidate forum hosted by a non City funded group, like the So.County Coalitiion to ask candidates their plans for the new four years in Aliso Viejo
