ANAHEIM, CA — Today, local Congresswoman Mimi Walters announced her endorsement of Anaheim City Councilwoman Kris Murray in her run for Orange County Supervisor.

“I am proud to support strong women leaders like Kris Murray, who has served the people of Orange County for decades. Not only is Murray a proven champion for taxpayers, her record of accomplishment on the City Council is unparalleled in local government,” stated Walters. “Murray has my full faith and confidence and our community will be well served by her leadership.”

Murray served as Mayor Pro Tem and a member of the Anaheim City Council for the past eight years and has become a recognized leader on some of the County’s most pressing issues, like homelessness. While on the Council, Murray played a critical role eliminating miles of unsustainable homeless encampments, creating thousands of local, skilled jobs, and generating hundreds of millions in new city and county revenue — money that supports police, fire and vital community services for residents. Murray was able to do this while maintaining her commitment to keeping local taxes and fees low.

“Congresswoman Walters has been a tireless champion of Orange County at the local, state and federal level for decades and I greatly value her support to serve as Orange County Supervisor,” Murray stated in response to Walters’ endorsement. “Orange County is facing many tough issues that directly impact our quality of life. Whether it is finding solutions to the homelessness crisis or increasing public safety in neighborhoods, I will work every day to ensure Orange County continues to thrive for years to come.”

Congresswoman Walters represents California’s 45th congressional district, which overlaps extensively with the seat Murray is seeking. The third district Supervisor seat will be open at the first of the year as a result of Supervisor Todd Spitzer being elected as Orange County District Attorney.

Kris Murray is a former Anaheim City Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Tem, with more than 25 years of public service to Orange County. She and her husband Steve Murray are small business owners and live in Anaheim Hills with their son Garrett and two rescue dogs, Bailey and Copper. The Murray’s spend family time volunteering at Seneca OC serving at-risk foster children, Boy Scouts, Little League, Anaheim Hills Community Council and at their son’s school.
