Press Release, For Immediate Release
Desi Joseph Kiss, MS, PE announces Candidacy for the Mission Viejo City Council
Today I’m announcing my candidacy for the Mission Viejo City Council in 2014. As a resident since 1989, I understand Mission Viejo’s history, heritage, traditions, family friendly community, quality of life and the need for growth, integrity, accountability, transparency, fiscal responsibility and leadership.
I’m a professional engineer, small business owner, author and educator. I received my Masters Degree from the Californis State University Fullerton and served for over 10 years as PT Faculty at Saddleback College, Orange Coast College and CSU Fullerton. Prior to forming DJK Engineering in 2002, I worked on behalf of large organizations such as: Disneyland, Parsons Corporation, The Austin Co. and Washington International. This experience has given me the practical know-how to deal with the City’s organization, budgets, problems and solutions.
I stand for: integrity, accountability, investing in education and intellectual capital, public and environmental safety, lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, free markets to function and to bring back growth and prosperity to Mission Viejo.
I will work towards creating an unprecedented level of openness in Local Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, forums with public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our community and promote efficiency and effectiveness in the City Council. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for Citizens about what their Local Government is doing. Public engagement enhances the City Council’s effectiveness and improves the quality of its decisions. Collaboration actively engages Citizens in the work of their Local Government. In closed Local Government there is temptation for corruption because there is no oversight and accountability.
You deserve the truth, respect and truthful answers and to be able to hold elected officials accountable. Together we can work toward solutions and make our City a better place to live.
I would be honored to serve you and receive your vote on November 4, 2014. May God bless you and our beautiful City!
