My Top 3 Priorities

  • Oppose new taxes and fight to protect Proposition 13
  • Support Fire and Police to keep our residents, bsunesses and neighborhoods safe - Oppose the OC Needle Exchange Program
  • Adopt a fiscally conservative, balanced budnet and enact business friendly policies that grow Orange’s local economy




As a third-generation Orange resident, I’m proud to be homegrown and raised in this great town.  My wife and I are raising our children here, where they attend Orange Unified School District schools; just like I did. 




I’m not a politician, and I’ve never run for elected office.  I’m just a concerned citizen, father, and businessman who wants to give back to our community and invest in Orange.  I serve as Chairman of the Orange County Taxpayers Association, where fighting unnecessary taxes, like the Gas Tax, and protecting Proposition 13 is our mission.  I graduated from the Leadership Orange program of the Orange Chamber of Commerce, and coached in Orange Little League and at Orange High School.




As a private sector businessman, with experience in the public sector, I know what it takes to run government more like a business.  If elected, I will:


Fight new taxes


Protect our neighborhoods from crime


Preserve Orange’s great history and traditions


Adopt business friendly policies that grow Orange’s economy


Lead the efforts to end the homelessness crisis.




I am proud to be endorsed by our Orange City Firefighters.




Please join Mayor Pro Tem Mark A. Murphy; Councilmembers Mike Alvarez and Fred Whitaker; former Orange Councilmembers Carolyn Cavecche, Mike Spurgeon, and William G. Steiner; and many other Orange residents as I ask for your vote.   Please vote for Chip Monaco for Orange City Council.
