Former Assemblyman and Orange County Deputy Sheriff Allan R. Mansoor was 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 in recognition of his leadership on behalf of the people of Orange County.
Serving residents of Costa Mesa as Mayor and Assemblyman, Allan’s focus has always been to get back to the basics of good government by focusing on fiscal responsibility, infrastructure repair and public safety.
Prior to elected office, Allan dedicated himself to public safety. Joining the Orange County Sheriff’s Department in 1993, he was assigned to the Men’s Central Jail. Other assignments have included John Wayne Airport, the Sex Offender Notification And Registration (SONAR) Division and patrol in Dana Point and North Operations (includes the unincorporated areas from Santa Ana Heights to Sunset Beach and the unincorporated parts of North Orange County). This experience gave him deep perspective and understanding of crime-related issues in and around Costa Mesa.
Following his service on the City Council, Allan was elected to the California State Assembly in 2010 where he served as Vice Chairman of the Assembly Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security Committee, and as Co-Chair on the Assembly Legislative Ethics Committee, as well as the Assembly Budget and Assembly Health Committees.
Allan moved to Costa Mesa in 1976 and has lived here most of his life. He attended junior high school at Christ Lutheran and graduated from Estancia High School, where he participated in wrestling and track and field. Allan worked at Orange Coast College as a Campus Safety Officer while studying there and later obtained an Associates Degree from Coastline Community College.
Allan and his wife Janniffer continue to make Costa Mesa their home with their two children, Avalon Jane (age 2), and Joshua Dayton (age 6mo).
Allan R. Mansoor believes in lower taxes, balanced budgets and putting parents and families first.
