Seaside Taxpayers Association Endorses Felix for Seaside Mayor

STA Also Endorses Jason Campbell for Seaside City Council

[http://felixforseaside.com/]

Felix served as Mayor of Seaside from 2010 to 2012. He drove the City Council to balance two budgets without spending any reserves (i.e. structurally balanced). Previous administrations depleted $13.8 million of reserves (down to just over $1 million) over a period of 7 years.

Subsequent to his leadership on the budget, the City began spending almost $5 million (about 20%) less in its General Fund than previously — yet services increased. City Hall added one day of service (again open 5 days per week), police patrol and fire service were enhanced and planning and recreation staffing were authorized for increases.

As a result, beginning in approximately mid-2011 the City started experiencing its fastest pace of economic development in 25 years.

Unfortunately, many of these gains (in particular the budget) are being reversed and a large number of stakeholders have reached out to Felix to ask him to set the City on a positive path once again.
