A Welcome Message From Pat Bates

Welcome to the website for Orange County’s fabulous Fifth District! This website is designed to provide visitors a wide array of information regarding Orange County government and many other interesting links. I hope you will find the information useful.

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, the community of Shady Canyon in the City of Irvine, as well as the unincorporated communities of Coto de Caza, Ladera Ranch, Las Flores, and Wagon Wheel – all of which I am 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.

In addition to preserving and protecting the quality of life we enjoy as residents of this great county, my priorities include working to expedite implementation of transportation projects to relieve traffic congestion, making sure your tax dollars are spent wisely, and being responsive to constituent concerns. As always, my door is open.

Supervisor Pat Bates

I look forward to serving as your Fifth District Supervisor and ensuring that Orange County indeed has a government that is “of, by, and for the people.”

Sincerely,

Pat Bates
Supervisor, 5th District
County of Orange Board of Supervisors
