Irvine People Are Making Waves
If you don’t already know Farrah N. Khan, now’s the time to really get to know her. She has been working behind the scenes for the past 10 years in the Irvine and Orange County area building up her credentials. In 2014, she was appointed as Community Services Commissioner for the City of Irvine which propelled her to take the next step, running for Irvine City Council.
This is a critical election for the City of Irvine to bring in new councilmembers who have worked within the community and know the city. “ This election isn’t about undoing what’s been done, it’s not about one side against another, it’s about connecting. Let’s connect with developers, businesses, residents, faith groups, non-profits, students and educators to improve our quality of life at work and at home” stated Farrah. Her platform is simple: Growing with Smart Infrastructure, Being Transparent, Introducing Energy Efficiency programs for Businesses and Focusing on Family Values.
Farrah has been the recipient of awards from the State Assembly, State Senate and Congress. She was also the recipient of the 2015 Community Leader Award by the OC Human Relations Commission.
