Judy Franco, an incumbent of 30 years, held a commanding lead over challenger Loretta Zimmerman in the Newport-Mesa Unified school board race for Trustee Area 5, according to preliminary election returns released late Tuesday evening. "The budget is going to be our biggest issue," Franco said. Costa Mesa Councilwoman Katrina Foley was also ahead of four-year incumbent Michael Collier in her bid for Trustee Area 2.

Costa Mesa City Councilwoman Katrina Foley, skiing with her family during the City Council’s meeting Wednesday night, shrugged off concerns that the board elected Eric Bever as the city’s new mayor in her absence. While noting her appreciation of the support expressed by fellow Councilwoman Linda Dixon, Foley said Bever’s ascension wouldn’t prompt any serious policy changes on the council. “I don’t think it really matters if you’re in the position of mayor or not, if you’re going out and doing good work for the community,” she said.

The UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans are gearing up for a huge battle Saturday. And as many in Orange County are aware, the county is SC fan territory.

Millard spoke during the public comments session about why Newport Beach’s wealth isn’t rubbing off on Costa Mesa, despite the cities’ shared border.

Costa Mesa City Councilwoman Katrina Foley was recognized Tuesday for her work to help the city’s children and families. Foley received the John Upton award from the Childs-Pace Foundation, a nonprofit group that runs after-school programs for children from low- to moderate-income families. Childs-Pace board members said they chose Foley for the award because she has long been a volunteer for programs serving domestic violence victims and local schools, and as a council member she has proposed new bike trails, neighborhood clean-ups and a program to eliminate gangs.

Over the decades I've had many interesting careers. I've been a hairdresser, worked in New York City's garment center and briefly had a gig as a showroom shoe model — until I fell off a pair of platforms in front of a Macy's buyer. I've managed a rock 'n' roll club and cooked up laughs on a comedy cooking show. And though I've enjoyed each crazy chapter, including this one as a columnist, I've never had a hankering to return to any of them. Once I'm done, I'm done. Apparently that isn't the case for Katrina Foley, former Costa Mesa councilwoman turned Newport-Mesa schools trustee turned council candidate.
