IRVINE, CA – Farrah N. Khan was sworn into office for a second term as the city of Irvine’s Mayor, along with newly elected Councilmembers Larry Agran and Kathleen Treseder on December 13 in front of a capacity audience at the city council chamber.
Khan who was sworn in for a two-year term, made electoral history in November 2020, when she not only received the highest number of votes for the position of mayor in the city’s history, but also shattered glass ceilings as the first woman of color to hold the position, and the first Muslim woman to lead the city.
Khan grew up in Northern California and began her career in the biotech and innovation industry as a regulatory manager focusing on streamlining complex products and international research. She and her family moved to Irvine in 2004 where her two sons attended school.
