About Ralph

Dear Friends and Supporters,

After thoughtful consideration and at the urging of many of you and others
in the community, I have made the decision to run for re-election as Mayor
of the City of Seaside in the upcoming November election. With 12 years of
public service in the City of Seaside and greater regional area, my
experienced leadership and critical thinking have and will provide the
positive vision, strategic planning, and consensus building skills necessary
to restore the momentum and direction of our community toward a sound and
bright future.

I have represented Seaside and served as Chair on several boards such as the
Fort Ord Reuse Authority, Transportation Agency of Monterey County,
Association of Monterey Bay Area Government, Monterey Peninsula Regional
Water Authority and the Seaside Groundwater Basin Watermaster. I am an
ardent supporter of local organizations that provide positive alternatives
for our youth.

With 4 generations of my family living in Seaside, I am deeply vested in our
community, strongly connected to its history and very concerned about its
future. We have witnessed tremendous change in Seaside over the years and we
have faced some of the worst economic times in our City’s history. Clearly,
challenges lie ahead. We have capitalized on several opportunities in the
past 18 months that will provide the much needed revenues for our Public
Safety and other services that our citizens need and deserve. I am committed
to continue meeting these opportunities and challenges with the strong
leadership that Seaside needs to realize the bright future that all our
citizens can enjoy and be proud of. I believe that, with focused leadership
and careful planning, Seaside can and will realize its potential to be an
economically sound and prosperous city. We need to remind those that would
invest in our community that Seaside Is Open For Business.

With your continued support, we can accomplish these goals and so much more.
I thank you for your past support and would greatly appreciate your personal
endorsement and contribution to my campaign for election as Mayor of
Partner with me and let’s Keep Seaside First!
