What Dave Stands for

Public Safety

 Dave is a 29 year veteran of the Orange County Sheriff's Department.  As Mayor, Dave ensured deputies had more up to date equipment as well as insisted on evacuation plans for residents in case of emergency.  

Fiscal Reponsibility

Dave has saved the city millions of dollars by fixing the convention center contract and changing the Ranch project to a more responsible project Dave promises to continue to be a fiscal watchdog.  . 


 Dave promised to bring transparency and has done so by televising city council meetings for the first time in city history as well as making all standing meetings public meetings.  

About Dave


Dave Harrington began his law enforcement career with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department in 1985. His almost 29 year career included  the Main Jail,  patrol, Investigations, including Economic Crimes, Fugitive Warrants, Sex Crimes and Property Crimes.
Dave promoted to Sergeant in 1999 and lead the Neighborhood Enhancement Team consisting of Community Oriented Policing, Directed Enforcement, Crime Prevention and Gang Reduction Intervention Partnership. It was during this time Dave earned the Medal of Merit for innovations at the department. Concentrating primarily on Deputy safety and training, Dave acquired tactical shotguns, first aid kits and tactical plate carriers (vests that stop rifle rounds) and created an online training program that made every day a training day. Dave finished his career in Yorba Linda working first on the transition and then as the Administrative/Investigation Sergeant for the city.

Dave retired and a year later was elected to the Aliso Viejo City Council where he now serves as the Mayor. He is married to his wife Michele, a business owner and Marine Corps Veteran and together they have a blended family including Dave’s two children Christopher and Natalie, Michele’s 16 yr old son Tyson and two kids they adopted from Ethiopia 17 yr old Negasse and 16 yr old Tamu.
