This election is so important to the City of Irvine, its families and our future.
Before her career in public service, Carrie excelled in academia, graduating with highest-honors and two degrees from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She then attended Harvard Law School, where she first answered the call to public service as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), helping abused children navigate the court system. It was this early experience working with society’s most vulnerable children that compelled Carrie to choose a career in public policy rather than in the courtroom.

In a Crowded Contest, O’Malley’s Plan to Reduce Traffic and Promote Strong Public Safety Message Stands Out
IRVINE, Calif. – Today, public policy expert and candidate for the Irvine City Council, Carrie O’Malley, has released the following statement:
“Over the last twenty years, I have had the privilege of calling Irvine my home. My husband and I chose to buy our home and raise our children here because public safety, open space, top-notch education and quality of life are tantamount.
It is my love for this city, and my passion for public service, that has led me to run for the Irvine City Council. As a long-time resident, I understand the commitment and vision for the City of Irvine. As your Council Member I am committed to keeping Irvine as one of the safest cities, preserving the Master Plan, enhancing our terrific schools, protecting our open spaces and improving transportation throughout the city.
I would like to thank my volunteers, supporters and campaign staff for your tireless effort these past several months. Together, we will see victory on Election Day and keep Irvine the best place to live and raise family.”
