Re-Elect Steve Martin for Mayor
–Endorsements are rolling in for Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin in support of his bid for re-election to a second term. The most recent endorsement came Oct.6th from the Editorial Board of Tribune which cited Martin’s community involvement and representation of the people of Paso Robles.
“He’s also an astute politician who knows how to stick up for the people of Paso Robles… Martin isn’t afraid to question the status quo, even if that means challenging more powerful agencies” – San Luis Obispo Tribune
Others who are endorsing Steve Martin for Mayor include:
- Paso Robles Mayor Pro-Tem Steve Gregory
- Paso Robles Councilman John Hamon
- Paso Robles Councilman Fred Strong
- Former Mayor/Supervisor Frank Mecham
- Paso Robles Police Officers Association
- Paso Robles Firefighters
“It gives me great confidence to have this support from everyone,” said Martin. “When I became Mayor in 2014 I invited everyone to work together to keep Paso Robles a city where people can live, work and shop. We have made great strides over the last four years. In my next term I will focus my efforts on accelerating street repairs, diversifying our job base and expanding our public safety services.”
“When I took office four years ago I asked that we all work together to keep Paso Robles strong: a place where we can live, work and shop. And that’s just what we’re doing! We have established multiple water sources to sustain our needs under the General Plan. We’ve spent MORE than the amount generated by our sales tax override to repair local streets. We have recreated our planning processes to streamline application times. We have created new ways to make housing more affordable. We have created fiscally responsible city budgets with healthy reserves. We have worked together as a community to re-open the Centennial Pool. We have been leaders in civil discourse, protecting everyone’s right and ability to participate in city government.”
“In the next four years we will accelerate our street repair program, implement our new economic development policies to create new, good-paying jobs and focus on more improvements to our Police and Fire Departments. We will move forward with options to re-use the abandoned California Youth Correctional facility. We will partner with the Mid-State Fair and TravelPaso to explore the exciting potential for a regional conference center at the fairgrounds. We will tackle downtown parking and the expansion of our city library. We will work with our public employees and county/state representatives to pay down retirement liabilities, which will further stabilize our finances and assure high quality city services. And that just scratches the surface!
I am excited about the next four years and I hope you are, too. I respectfully ask for your support and your vote. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.”
Mayor, City of Paso Robles
