Robert Ming Wins 2014 Collaborative Public Policymaker Award
Association of California Cities Recognizes Ming for Work on Pension Reform
ORANGE COUNTY, CA – The Association of California Cities-Orange County (ACC-OC) announced that they have chosen Robert Ming as their recipient for the 2014 Collaborative Public Policymaker Award. Ming was recognized for his work as a regional leader on innovative pension reform.
“It is an honor to be recognized by elected officials across Orange County for my collaborative efforts to advance pension reform,” Ming said. “If elected, I will bring this collaborative approach of fiscally responsible common sense leadership to the Board of Supervisors.”
Ming is widely recognized by fellow city councilmembers across Orange County for his leadership as a pivotal figure in ACC-OC. Ming served as the founding President of ACC-OC, which was formed in 2011 to provide a forum where cities could advance good public policy, promote collaboration, and defend and advance local control.
A leader in Orange County, Ming has more grassroots support, has raised more money, and is endorsed by more organizations, city councilmembers, school board members, and sitting state legislators than any other candidate vying for Fifth District Supervisor.
Robert Ming was born and raised in Orange County. He and his wife Susie have been married for 21 years and have four children. Professionally, Ming is Managing Director and Associate General Counsel at Jefferies, an international brokerage firm. Ming is a two-time Mayor of Laguna Niguel, and has served on numerous non-profit and charitable boards.
Robert Ming is running for Orange County Supervisor in the 5th District, currently represented by Supervisor Pat Bates, who is leaving due to term limits. Orange County’s 5th District includes the cities of Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, as well as the community of Shady Canyon in Irvine and the unincorporated communities of Coto de Caza, Ladera Ranch, Las Flores, and Wagon Wheel.
