MAYOR PRO TEM
THANK YOU MARINA
I want to thank the voters of Marina for their confidence in my ability to address their concerns in a logical and objective manner. The campaign was a tough one where at least two of my opponents saw the need to be negative and inaccurate in their approach to getting elected.
The support resulted in my receiving the most votes as a candidate for city council and I actually received more votes than Mayor Delgado's opponent even though I was running against 4 candidates. This is an excellent indication of Mayor Delgado's strong effort, leadership and dedication to the best interests of this city.
I hope that you will continue to contact me as to your concerns in the next 4 years.
Through the efforts of your City Council, city staff, numerous volunteers, parents, and youth, the City of Marina was chosen as one of the top 100 COMMUNITIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE in the United States.
This was the SECOND year that we applied for the award AND the second year we won. Our success goes a long way in establishing that the decisions made by past and present City Councils, city staff, and our volunteers have been the correct approach toward providing positive opportunities for all of our residents.
I AM HONORED-THANK YOU
On 2/7/12 the Marina city staff recommended my appointment to the Oversight Board to the Successor Agency to the former Redevelopment Agency of the City of Marina. The Marina City Council accepted this recommendation and voted to appoint me to serve with Doug Yount, Development Services Dept. Director.
The Oversight Board will have the duty of directing the Successor Agency to determine whether contracts, agreements or other arrangements between the former RDA and private parties should be terminated or renegotiated to reduce the Successor Agency's liabilities and to increase the net revenues to the taxing entities.
At the April 2013 meeting of the Oversight Board the board voted unanimously to re-elect me as Chairman.
I welcome these appointments and thank the staff , the Oversight Board members and the city council for its faith in my ability to perform the necessary tasks.
