District 4 - Kevin Muldoon (2022*)
Newport Beach Mayor Kevin Muldoon was elected to the City Council in 2014 as the District 4 representative. He was reelected in 2018 and is currently serving a second term as mayor, a position he has called “the honor of a lifetime.”
Raised in Orange County, Muldoon received his Juris Doctor from Chapman University School of Law and Bachelor of Arts degree from Loyola Marymount University, where he was awarded the Dr. Singleton Award for Excellence in Economics.
In 2006, Muldoon worked for President George W. Bush in the White House Office of Strategic Initiatives. He returned from Washington to be admitted to the State Bar of California and practice law as a Deputy District Attorney in the Orange County District Attorney’s office. Currently, he is an executive for a local technology company.
As a Mayor and a Council member, Muldoon has worked to reduce the City’s unfunded pension liability, control spending and reduce costs.
Muldoon’s key initiatives during his current term as mayor have included ocean and harbor water quality improvements and expanding recreational access to Newport Harbor. He championed the installation of Newport Beach’s first “human lift” to expand access to disabled boaters and kayakers, creating a more inclusive and welcoming harbor for residents and visitors with disabilities.
In May, Muldoon launched the “Renew Newport,” initiative, aimed at increasing the involvement of non-profit and faith-based groups in City beautification projects.
Muldoon and his wife, Heather, are parents to a 3-year-old son and a 3-month-old daughter.
