Serving on the Del Mar City Council is serious work, not to be taken lightly. This is an opportunity for me to use my years of experience living, working, and volunteering in the San Diego region to make our wonderful Del Mar even better.
My wife Catherine and I were fortunate to move to Del Mar 17 years ago after 26 years in the region. Catherine’s passion for the environment led her to join Del Mar’s Sustainability Advisory Board. Our two married sons, two granddaughters (and soon to be two grandsons) think of Del Mar as their home.
My best friend Mel Katz and I started Manpower Staffing 43 years ago. We have built it into a successful business, now in five states, and still lead it today. I look forward to bringing my years of management and financial knowledge to our city government. I have served on the Del Mar Foundation, the Del Mar Business Association, and the Village Specific Plan Committee.
While I am a fanatic for local control, I also know that my leadership roles in regional organizations such as the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Corporation and the San Diego Tourism Authority will add great value to Del Mar.
I am ready to proactively tackle our key issues such as the city’s financial challenges, the impacts of climate change, maximize our investment in Streetscape, and generally improving our quality of life.
I understand the value of collaboration between local leaders and regional leaders and now is the time to take action. We can work together to keep local control and preserve everything we love about Del Mar. We can accomplish this while preparing for the challenges of the future. I ask for your support.
