Robert's swearing in December 9. 2008 Santa Monica City Hall

Thank you again for your support in my successful campaign for election to the Santa Monica Rent Control Board, I could never have done it without you.


Since becoming your Commissioner, I am working on issues that will make Santa Monica rent control work for everyone; tenants, housing providers, all our residents alike.


Some of the important issues like: better parking for all residents, public safety, fair & balanced development, responsive local government and improvements in our public school facilities are my priorities. Public Safety is my top priority, all else stems from a well funded, responsive and growing police and fire departments. To that end I have regular meetings with Chief Jackman and Chief Horn plus various community offices and SMPD & SMFD staff.


In regard to improving our housing stock, I attend both the ACTION and AAGLA apartment owners meeting plus I communicate on a regular basis with the SMRR leadership. Additionally as a CAR director I attend all the California Association of Realtor (CAR) conventions as well as the Housing California Workshops. As your Commissioner I work with both the supply and demand equation of our housing industry, this is the best policy regarding improving our supply of quality housing stock and defending growth that benefits our residents.


As the Chairman of the Pico Improvement Organization (PIO) I stand up for small business owners because they create jobs. I have a firm commitment for job creation, because it leads to dignity and self esteem the first two ingredients to success and prosperity for our nation.


Having put two of our three children thru our school system (our last is still at SAMO), the success of SMMUSD is on my plate daily. Good schools lead to good jobs, and jobs sustain our city. From the days of Ben Franklin the health and vitality of local schools has always been at the fore front of every elected official. I am proud to put the time and energy into our great school system. The lives of all of us are touched by its prosperity.


I want to hear from you about your issues and concerns. Again you have my heartfelt thanks for your help in my election to Santa Monica Rent Control Board
