Councilman Chip

Dear Neighbor,

As a third-generation Orange resident, I am very proud to represent the residents and businesses as your homegrown Councilman.  

As a parent, whose children attend Orange Unified School District schools just as I did, I could not be more proud of this amazing town and all who choose to make Orange their home or place of business.

As many of you are aware, I am not a politician and had never run for elected office prior to my campaign for City Council in 2018.  I remain a concerned citizen, father, and businessman who wants to leave Orange better than I found it.  My philosophy has been simple...base my decisions on the GREATEST GOOD FOR THE GREATEST MANY.

The City of Orange is so special.  People who grew up here CHOOSE to stay here and those who move here make Orange their home for years to come.  It is so important that we elect individuals who care deeply about our town; who will commit to preserving its way of life; and, respect its history and tradition.  That does not mean we refuse to grow and evolve.  Rather, it means we preserve our way of life in each decision that is made.  Growth with a commitment and deep respect for our past will ensure that this way of life is protected into the future.

My service to our community includes:

Serving as the Chairman of the ORANGE COUNTY TAXPAYERS ASSOCIATION
         Fighting new taxes and protecting Proposition 13 is our mission

Coaching youth sports at ORANGE HIGH SCHOOL and ORANGE LITTLE LEAGUE

         Giving back to our children and teenagers in Orange helps them LOVE and RESPECT our City

I graduated from the ORANGE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE'S LEADERSHIP ORANGE program             Interfacing with stakeholders from all facets of life in Orange

It is an honor to represent you on the Orange City Council and I respectfully ask for your continued support as I work hard to serve our community.

Sincerely,

Chip Monaco

Councilman CHIP MONACO's

five Point Plan

Fight new taxes


“As the Chairman of the Orange County Taxpayers Association, I fought against new taxes.
As your Councilman, I will oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.”


Preserve our great history and traditions


“As a third-generation Orange resident and someone who attended kindergarten through college right here in Orange, I understand the history that makes our community so unique and special. I will protect Orange’s great history and traditions, so that my children
can enjoy the same Orange I grew up with.”


Keep Orange safe


“We need to ensure Orange Fire and Orange Police have the resources needed to keep Orange
safe. I am honored to be endorsed by the brave Orange City Firefighters who protect our community.”


Grow our economy


“We must adopt business-friendly policies to grow Orange’s economy. Bringing more
businesses to Orange helps bring more jobs to our city. ”


Reduce homelessness


“We must reduce homelessness in Orange with both services and enforcement. Homeless individuals
who want help should be connected to the services they need. Homeless individuals who are
unwilling to accept help must be required to follow the law. We must empower our Orange Police to enforce
our laws when homeless individuals are unwilling to comply with the law or the accept services available to them.”
