Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin to run for supervisor
Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin announced Monday he will be a candidate for the San Luis Obispo County first district supervisor seat in the June 2016 primary election. Current First District Supervisor Frank Mecham has announced he will not run for re-election. Martin will be facing fellow Paso Robles City Councilman John Hamon, who recently announced his candidacy.
Martin has a long history in local government. He served on the Paso Robles City Council from 1987 to 1996 and as mayor from 1988 to 1990. More recently he was elected again to the Paso Robles City Council in 2012 and then ran unopposed for mayor in 2014. As mayor and on the council, Martin names his key focuses as: maintaining and enhancing the city’s water resources, restoring and improving local government services and bringing head of household jobs to the community and the North County.
“In the North County we are faced with many important regional issues including water, economic development, and job creation,” said Martin. “I am running for the board of supervisors to bring my skills and track record of bipartisan problem solving and coalition building to address these issues. On the board of supervisors I will continue to listen to our community, lead and communicate in the service of the people of the North County while establishing a productive working rapport with all the members of the board of supervisors.”
