VOTE YES4Esther for Oceanside City Council, District 1
Dear Oceanside Voter,
Several years ago, while going door-to-door, you told me what was important to you - public safety, economic development and quality of life.
Since then, I have worked diligently and passionately to achieve that for you and for every Oceanside resident.
Oceanside is within the safest in 35 years, with dramatic decreases in emergency response times. I have increased tourism, businesses and hotels; created a world destination for athletic events such as Ironman and Beach Soccer; increased recreational opportunities with the creation of El Corazon Park and Senior Center, Mance Buchanon Park, Luiseño Park, skate parks, and 22 soccer fields at El Corazon Park; pushed improvements for Oceanside Museum of Art, California Surf Museum, and Buddy Todd Park; fought to protect Goat Hill; pioneered zero waste goals; led the council to ban puppy mill stores; and am working to make Oceanside a bicycle-friendly community.
I brought $26 million and zero waste to Oceanside and am working to bring $100 million in jobs and infrastructure improvements.
I brought Google Indoor Maps to Oceanside, making us the first on the west coast!
I’ve also worked toward preserving our neighborhoods, protecting the homes of our seniors and veterans against Prop E, creating the most number of affordable housing units, enacting grassroots youth programs, addressing traffic and homeless issues, increasing businesses and jobs, and insisting on the best development projects.
Currently, I am working on homeless issues, expediting our aquatics center at El Corazon Park, bringing agri-tourism to our S. Morro Hills agricultural lands to ensure the economic viability of 3,700 acres of rich farmland, and supporting the SOAR ("Save Our Open Space and Agrigultural Resources") initiative to stop traffic gridlock and the tremendous hits to our general fund that would lead to less police officers, higher taxes, and less services.
I am working for you, to make Oceanside economically and environmentally sustainable for our future Oceanside families, generations and businesses.
This is the first year of the city's transition from "at-large" elections to "by-district" elections. Due to receiving a letter threatening legal actions that would have cost the city millions of dollars, the council adopted "by-district" elections, requiring citizens who wish to run for a city council seat to live in one of four districts. I was born and raised in District 1, the same neighborhood where my dad grew up, and I continue to live in the home of my parents, who have now passed. District 1 stretches from our pier, Junior Seau Beach Amphitheatre and Beach Community Center to the hills of Oceana. Our area includes the downtown, North Beach, Townsite, Eastside, Capistrano, Airport, Valley, Crown Heights, Seaside, Loma Alta, Loma Alta Mission Park, and Oceana neighborhoods. These communities have always been very important to me and part of my heart and soul.
I must run this November in order to represent my District 1 community, my home. I am the best candidate to represent District 1 and all of Oceanside.
My opponent is someone that I once believed in, someone I campaigned very hard for, campaigned for, in five elections, for over 8 years, to help my colleague Mayor Jim Wood and I bring Oceanside into a brighter future for all of our communities. Unfortunately, once Mr. Lowery finally won an election, he turned his back on our communities and promises. He became a bully, joining forces with other council members who do not put people first but instead outside developer special interests.
We must work together to bring the council back to "People First."
For proven leadership, please vote YES for Esther!
