Vote for Laura Ferguson for San Clemente City Council
Hi, I'm Laura Ferguson. I'm running for San Clemente City Council on November 6, 2018. I would be honored to have your support and vote. I have been involved in the San Clemente community for nearly two decades as a City employee and a community volunteer. I previously worked for the City of San Clemente for 18 years and if you elect me, I can bring trusted local experience to our community, knowing first-hand the nuts and bolts of our city organization. I know what is working and what needs fixing. One thing is certain, we need new leadership in our city council that will provide stronger oversight of our management--a clean slate will bring a New Day to San Clemente.
If we continue down this road of freewheeling spending on lawsuits -- $5M in just the past 2 ½ years alone (80% which we lose)and not meeting our priorities, your taxes and fees will continue to go up. I am 100% against this. If you think it is time to move in a different direction and not just keep moving blindly ahead in the wrong direction, vote for Laura Ferguson for San Clemente City Council. As your Councilmember I will:
Fight all efforts to split our town with a toll roads
Tackle homeless problems and connect people to resources
Keep our town safe with enhanced Public Safety
End wasteful spending by the City Council – no more tax increases and full transparency
It would be my honor to serve you in the capacity as a city council member and now that I am no longer a city employee, I am free to work for ALL CITIZENS OF SAN CLEMENTE TO PRESERVE OUR QUALITY OF LIFE AND MAINTAIN OUR QUAINT VILLAGE BY THE SEA.
