Kevin Muldoon is the Mayor of Newport Beach. Raised in Orange County, Kevin graduated from Chapman University School of Law and Loyola Marymount University, where he was awarded the Dr. Singleton Award for Excellence in Economics.

After law school, Muldoon worked for President George W. Bush in The White House. He was then a prosecutor in the Orange County District Attorney's office. He currently works for a local technology company.

While in office, Muldoon voted to cut taxes and fees, refunded money to ratepayers, fought against bond debt, and introduced a Charter Amendment that required a popular vote to approve city issued debt.

Muldoon also moved the President Reagan statue from cul-de-sac park, where it was vandalized, to the civic center; introduced John Wayne Day and re-named a park in his honor; and placed "In God We Trust" in the Council chambers.

In 2020, Muldoon sued Gavin Newsom in federal court and won, forcing him to reopen Orange County's beaches. This was the first of many victories to follow against the governor's illegal lockdowns.

Kevin and his wife Heather have a three-year-old son, Cannon, and are expecting a baby girl in June.
