Vote for Shiva Farivar for Irvine's City Council on November 8 Past

Tuesday, Nov 8, 2016 - Irvine, CA, United States

Free Event

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2016!
Shiva Farivar is a mother, community leader, and longtime Irvine resident, who is running for City Council to protect our quality of life and move our City forward.

Shiva was born in Tehran, but spent much of her childhood in Germany. In 1978, after graduating from the German High School in Tehran, she moved to California to pursue her higher education. She received her Bachelor’s Degrees in Political Science and German Literature from the UC San Diego, and her Master’s Degree in German Literature from UC Irvine.

As an active member of the Persian Community, Shiva has for the past six years coordinated efforts with other Community leaders to have the City of Irvine proclaim March 21 as Persian New Year Day. She has directed the Persian New Year Festival in Irvine for three years, which has been attended by not only Iranians, but also Public Officials and the Community-at-Large. Due to the overwhelming success of the event, Shiva and other Community members are planning to hold the event on an annual basis.
Shiva served on Irvine’s Community Services Commission for seven and a half years, and she chaired the commission for five years. In this role, she oversaw all aspects of the City’s Parks and Recreational Programs. She also chaired the Advisory Committee of Irvine’s Strategic Plan for Children, Youth and Families. Her long history of community involvement includes serving on numerous school site councils, working as the Executive Assistant to the Mayor of Irvine, and directing the Persian New Year Festival in Irvine for three years.

Shiva is deeply committed to represent the interests of all Irvine residents in order to achieve the best programs and services the City has to offer.
