Candidacy Statement

Education 

My name is Roberto Gomez. I attended UCLA and have lived in Santa Monica for over 40 years and have seen the drastic changes in City Government in Santa Monica.

Qualifications

The City used to be more responsive to the needs of the residents. It has shifted towards the needs of the developers to the detriment of the city residents at large. I am supremely qualified to the needs of the common person because I am attuned to the pulse of the wants and needs of residents like myself. I do not have a background in the way the City operates which should be a good thing. It means that I am not, and never will be, a carbon copy nor vote to be popular with my fellow City Council members. I will keep in mind what is right for everyone and not just a few. I grew up poor, am honest and will do what is just for everyone: Whether they may be poor or rich. I will bring fresh eyes and thinking to the staid and establish methods in Santa Monica City Politics.

Candidatura Declaración

Educacion

Mi nombre es Roberto Gomez. Asistí a UCLA y vivo en Santa Monica hace más de 40 años y he visto cambios drásticos en el Gobierno de la Ciudad en Santa Monica.

Curriculum vitae

La Ciudad solía ser más receptiva a las necesidades de los residentes. Se ha inclinado hacia las necesidades de los urbanizadores para detrimento de los residentes de la ciudad en general. Estoy sumamente califi cado para las necesidades de la persona común porque estoy en sintonía con el pulso de los deseos y necesidades de los residentes como yo. No tengo antecedentes en cuanto a la manera en que funciona la Ciudad lo cual debería ser algo positivo. Esto signifi ca que no soy, y nunca seré, una copia ni votaré para ser popular entre mis colegas miembros del Concejo Municipal. Seguiré teniendo en cuenta lo que es correcto para todos y no para unos pocos. Crecí siendo pobre, soy honesto y haré lo que es justo para todos: Sean pobres o ricos. Aportaré una mirada y pensamiento renovado a los métodos rígidos y establecidos en la Política de la Ciudad de Santa Monica.

Por favor apóyeme para el Concejo Municipal el 6 de noviembre de 2012.
