John’s goal in running for the Central San Pedro NC is to provide representation and leadership by one who has worked side-by-side with local stakeholders throughout the San Pedro community, regardless of positions, and will keep this council focused on the biggest challenges facing the San Pedro community. This council needs members who get involved when the community needs problems solved; not just committee discussions and position letters. It needs members who know to listen to their constituents and prioritize the community’s issues rather than their own personal agendas.
