Herald Editorial states............


"Smith knows Monterey well, having served for some 26 years as a city police officer. His platform is built around some standard policies — fiscal responsibility, safe streets, maintenance of infrastructure and historic preservation. At a recent forum, Smith promised his support of finding regional solutions to the Monterey Peninsula's water supply problems, and promised to have an open mind when it comes to the Monterey Waterfront Master Plan, saying he's in favor of beautifying the area but not compromising parking.


He ran for a council seat two years ago, has remained active in city politics and shows his commitment to serving the city by running again".

Kay Russo, Parks and Community Services Director, (Ret.) with Ed and Theresa Canepa, former Monterey Council Member

Unprecedented challenges require bold and thoughtful leadership. Finding the right solutions by keeping doors open to new ideas and solutions, while working collaboratively with all people, is important to me. Participating in creating effective Council policies and taking common sense direction to staff for appropriate action is critical. Looking towards quality of life for all residents will always be my first focus.


Through our valued team members (employees), volunteers and various commissions and community volunteer groups, we can accomplish extraordinary and meaningful things for Monterey.


Solutions come from having a collaborative attitude and a sound decision making temperament. Avoiding narrow interests from groups trying to over influence me, and staying connected to all areas of Monterey is my promise. Being fair, impartial and achieving consensus among different groups is very important to me and will drive my conduct.


In the coming months and next few years, the Monterey Council will be facing numerous critical decisions that will shape and prioritize projects and activities that will have significant on impacts to all who live and work here in Monterey. I will have a dedication to fiscal restraint and a focus towards services for the entire community. I will have a guiding principle and discipline to serving the public good and the best interest of residents, business in our community.
