PUBLIC SAFETY: Keeping Our Neighborhoods Safe
Violence can destroy a family and our communities.
As a former Orange County Deputy District Attorney and member of the Orange County’s Sexual Assault Unit, Andrew Do has successfully prosecuted violent sexual predators. He will always fight to protect our community from violence.
As our County Supervisor, Andrew Do opposed budget cuts to public safety. He also responded to the state’s early release of convicted criminals by investing $24 million dollars in the Orange County Sheriff’s Department -- money that was used to keep 900 violent predators off the street and upgrade equipment at Orange County’s Crime Lab.
HEALTH CARE: Expanding Access & Putting Patients First
Every patient should have access to high-quality health care.
Supervisor Andrew Do believes our health care system should put patients first. Bureaucratic obstacles should never block a patient’s access to care. That’s why he has worked with the Orange County Health Care Agency and CalOptima to give patients more control over their health care decisions.
During his first term, Andrew Do succeeded in implementing patient-centered reforms at CalOptima, the county’s public health plan for the poor and disabled. Orange County has streamlined senior health benefits through its OneCare Connect program, which grants seniors greater control over their medical decisions.
OPPORTUNITY: Creating Opportunities for Every Community
Every child in Orange County deserves a safe place to play.
Supervisor Andrew Do has expanded recreational facilities in Central Orange County – adding more parks, bike trails and green spaces. He’s committed to providing every child with a safe place to get out and be active.
As our County Supervisor, Andrew Do helped obtain $9.2 million to expand and improve bike trails and walking paths in Santa Ana, Westminster and Garden Grove. Later this year, the county will complete the Santa Ana Gardens Bikeway, which will provide children in Santa Ana with a safe route to and from school.
