Trustee seeking mayor spot

The 2024 election campaign for Garden Grove’s mayor is getting an early start.


Lan Quoc Nguyen, a member of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education, announced his intention this week to seek the top elected post in the city.

Steve Jones, the current mayor, is “termed out” after he completes the two-year stretch to which he was elected in November 2022.

He was appointed to the council in 2007, elected to a seat in 2008 and has served as mayor since 2016. Nguyen has been on the GGUSD board since 2002.

“Garden Grove is a dynamic city of nearly 180,000 residents,” said Nguyen in a statement. “The people are our most precious assets and they have built Garden Grove into what it is today. As an immigrant, public servant and lawyer I want to bring that renewed energy and optimism to city hall.”

  1. A 17 month campaign…for mayor of Garden Grove? The final round of the French presidential election goes three weeks. This is insanity.
