This statement was published in the Voter Information Pamphlet
I want to thank the voters of Pacifica for the privilege of
serving on City Council for the last two years and previously on Pacifica
School District Board for 14 years. My
practical, common sense decision-making steered both organizations through
periods of extreme fiscal difficulty while improving services to the community.
While on the School Board, and now on City Council, my goal is to
enhance the quality of life for Pacificans. At PSD, I did that with modernized
schools, balanced budgets, and rising test scores. PSD became and still is a
state-recognized, high performing school district.
Now my goal is to make Pacifica a high performing city. In my two
years on Council we have moved towards that goal by hiring a no-nonsense,
professional City Manager, approving two balanced budgets, and controlling
spending to eliminate the budget deficit.
If re-elected, I will address quality of life issues such as
street repairs and park maintenance, and continue taking steps to improve our
fiscal situation. I advocated hiring an economic development coordinator, and
this position is included in our 2014-15 budget. With your vote I can continue
to make Pacifica the high performing city we know it can be. www.mikeforpacifica.com
