Tara Rickson Pitches Safer Aliso Viejo In Run For City Council

Rickson is running for a first-time seat on the Aliso Viejo City Council

Tara Rickson is stepping outside the business world she has grown accustomed to and is running for public office for the first time. The certified public accountant is running for the Aliso Viejo City Council on a platform that her background in finance will allow her to run the city in a fiscally responsible manner.

“Fiscal responsibility is a cornerstone to a successful business, marriage, and government,” reads Rickson’s campaign website. “As an accountant, I believe city governance should address financial matters in a responsible manner without compromising safety or way of life.”

Rickson has received endorsements from Newport Beach Mayor Kevin Muldoon, Aliso Viejo City Councilmember and former Mayor Mike Munzung, the Lincoln Club of Orange County, and many others. Part of the reason for this involves Rickson’s pitch of revitalizing Aliso Viejo’s Town Center. 

“Our Town Center is aging and in need of improvement,” Rickson’s website read. “I will make it my mission to understand all existing efforts and work to advance those efforts with the goal of upgrading Town Center.”

Rickson made sure to make law enforcement a pillar of her campaign, vowing to ensure tax dollars from Aliso Viejo citizens responsibly go towards making the community safe. She has made it explicitly clear safety is her top priority.

“Aliso Viejo has seen a significant increase in property crimes,” Rickson explained on her website. “In collaboration with our Police Chief and Administrative Sergeant, I will determine if we have proper coverage and are statistically on par with the best police departments in the county in terms of emergency response.”

Rickson’s election will be held on November 8th.
