Running for City Council
I have been approached by many community members who have suggested that I run for the Seaside City Council. Running a campaign involves two parts. The first is to register with the Secretary of State so that I can raise money. Part two, which is most important, is to have community support. So, the purpose of this letter is to ask for your endorsement.
Let me say something about myself. I moved to Monterey County in 2002 to attend Cal State Monterey Bay. In 2006, I became a homeowner in Seaside, where my lady and I are raising our 6-year-old daughter. In the past, I have been involved in our community as an English teacher and soccer coach. Just as I seek to educate and empower our youth, I strive to empower my civic duties as a concerned citizen. I am a Seaside Neighborhood Improvement Commission member. Our commission and partnering organizations restored the neighborhood watch program and had new signs placed throughout the city. We developed the new gateway sign near the Embassy Suites and held various contests to help homeowners improve their property. Recently we renovated a basketball court that had been unusable for many years and got PG&E to put an attractive fence surrounding their lot on San Pablo Avenue.
My campaign theme is "Working for the community." If elected, I plan to continue the Seaside City Council's work and introduce my vision for Seaside, which has been developed with the help of city residents. You can read about my ideas at Alexhmiller.com.
As a Council member, I will show dignity and respect to everyone who raises an issue. I can be reached at 831-777-8317, and I am always open to listening to your ideas and suggestions.
We hope to do print and video endorsements. Can I count on you? Click here to get involved!
