Mansoor 2Former Assemblyman and Orange County Deputy Sheriff Allan R. Mansoor was elected to the Costa Mesa City Council for a third time on Nov. 8, 2016 and sworn in on Dec. 13, 2016.
Allan was first elected to the City Council in November of 2002 and was appointed mayor in 2005 and again in 2007 and 2009. Following his service on the City Council, Allan was elected to the 68th District of the California State Assembly in 2010 where he served as Vice Chairman of the Assembly Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security Committee, and as Co-Chair on the Assembly Legislative Ethics Committee, as well as the Assembly Budget and Assembly Health Committees. After redistricting, he was reelected to the 74th District in 2012.

Previously, he served as an Orange County Deputy Sheriff beginning in 1993, where he was assigned to the Men’s Central Jail. Other assignments have included John Wayne Airport, the Sex Offender Notification and Registration (SONAR) Division and patrol in Dana Point and North Operations, which includes the unincorporated areas from Santa Ana Heights to Sunset Beach and the unincorporated parts of North Orange County. This experience gave him deep perspective and understanding of crime-related issues in and around Costa Mesa.

Allan moved to Costa Mesa in 1976 and has lived here most of his life. He attended junior high school at Christ Lutheran and graduated from Estancia High School, where he participated in wrestling and track and field.
