Allan Mansoor Announces Endorsement of Kelly Ernby for Assembly

Costa Mesa City Councilman and Former Assemblyman (AD74) Allan Mansoor endorses Kelly Ernby in the race for California’s 74th Assembly District

(Costa Mesa, CA) – Costa Mesa City Councilman and former Assemblyman (AD74) Allan Mansoor today announced his endorsement of Kelly Ernby for State Assembly.  

“Deputy District Attorney Kelly Ernby is the only candidate in the race for the 74th Assembly District who has the background and credibility to lead the charge to roll back perilous Sacramento laws like AB 109/Prop 47 that allow criminals to stay on our streets. Kelly personally fought in court to keep dangerous career criminals in prison and out of our community. Her background in law enforcement is a valuable asset to the people of Orange County, and I am looking forward to working with her to keep our neighborhoods safe,” said Allan Mansoor.

Former Assemblyman and Orange County Deputy Sheriff Allan Mansoor was first elected to the Costa Mesa City Council in November 2002. During his prior service on the council, Allan was appointed Mayor by the City Council in 2005 and was reappointed two additional times. Following his service on the City Council, Allan was elected to the California State Assembly in 2010 where he served until 2014. He was elected to the Costa Mesa City Council for a third time in 2016.

Mansoor’s endorsement adds to the growing list of prominent supporters of Kelly Ernby for Assembly, joining Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner, Orange County Assessor Claude Parrish, former State Board of Equalization Chair Diane Harkey, Assemblyman Phillip Chen, Assemblyman Vince Fong, Mission Viejo Mayor Greg Raths, Huntington Beach Mayor Erik Peterson, Irvine Mayor Christina Shea and many other community leaders and former elected officials.

“I am honored to accept an endorsement from an experienced Orange County leader like Allan Mansoor,” said Kelly Ernby. “As your Assemblywoman, public safety will always be one of my top priorities. Orange County deserves meaningful reform to the current laws that restrict our law enforcement officers’ ability to do their jobs. I will stand behind efforts to reduce crime and find solutions to homelessness to protect law-abiding Californians.” 

Kelly Ernby is a pro-business, pro-taxpayer, political outsider with over 16 years of legal experience, including more than seven as a local prosecutor. As a deputy district attorney, Ernby has litigated some of the most serious and complex cases in the areas of the environment, consumer protection, labor violations, and fraud. Ernby is a California native, the daughter of two enlisted members of the U.S. Navy and the sister to a Marine. Ernby now resides in Huntington Beach with her husband.  

The 74th district encompasses the beach towns of Huntington, Newport, and Laguna as well as Costa Mesa, Laguna Woods, and Irvine. Republicans have a 4% voter registration advantage in the district (35% Rep, 31% Dem, 30% NPP).
