Fifth District

The Fifth District encompasses the South County 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 unincorporated areas of Coto de Caza, Ladera Ranch, Las Flores, and Wagon Wheel – all of which I am extremely honored to serve.

South County is blessed with a remarkable landscape, rich in manmade wonders and natural resources. With our majestic mountains, idyllic wilderness areas, picturesque parks, serene coastal hills & canyons, beautiful beaches, legendary historical sites, and charming communities, the Fifth District provides a quality of life that is truly unsurpassed.

Being so large, the Fifth District has a very fascinating make up. In addition to being abundantly rich in natural history, it is home to 28 miles of exquisite coastline, over 35 square miles of County Parks, and over 46 square miles of National Forest.
