Welcome from Mission Viejo Councilwoman Trish Kelley
I have been honored to represent you on the City Council as Mayor during 2021, and I thank you for the confidence you placed in me by electing me with a wide margin on November 3rd, 2020. We have seen many accomplishments and changes during my terms of service on the City Council. The City’s budget is balanced and we have a financially strong reserve fund. We continue to have top safety rankings on both the State and National levels. We have renovated several parks and purchased the Casta del Sol Golf Course to assure the preservation of a beautiful open space in Mission Viejo.
24/7 Wall Street named Mission Viejo as the best city in California in which to live, confirming that our quality of life here is wonderful! In addition, Money Magazine recently named Mission Viejo as one of the 50 best cities in which to live in America! We were the only city in Southern California to receive this recognition!

This past year, the COVID-19 pandemic presented many challenges, and we worked to reduce our expenditures to match reduced revenues while continuing to support our businesses and protect the economy as well as the health of our residents. Although three vaccines are available and therapeutics are in the pipeline, there is still work to be done to keep Mission Viejo safe, beautiful, and thriving, and I thank you for placing your trust in me to continue that work.
During the year I appeared in four episodes of the '2021 Mission Viejo Today' mayor programs on MVTV that give additional detailed information of activities and government initiatives in the City. Click on these links to view the videos:
