Ed Smith Candidate Statement                                                                                                                      Occupation: Monterey Council Incumbent, Retired Police Commander Education and Qualifications:   We live in a great city with cultural history and diversity.  As an incumbent, I have listened to and responded to our residents’ concerns.  Monterey requires experienced leaders to resolve its sometimes-complex issues.  I will continue to maintain Monterey’s high quality of life, enhancing recreational opportunities for all, including our youth, preserving neighborhoods, and maintaining a clean, secure and fiscally responsible city.                                                                                                              My priorities are addressing traffic congestion, continue fixing our streets, sidewalks and storm drains and being a steward of local resources. Sharron, my wife of 45 years, and I grew up on the Monterey Peninsula, and have lived in our Monterey home for 36 years.  We have two children and both attended Monterey schools.                                                                                                                                                                I proudly served 26 years with Monterey Police, retiring after 34 years in public service as a division commander.  I hold a Master’s in Public Administration, a Bachelor’s, and a Teaching Credential.                                                                                                                        I represent Monterey on many boards, including: transportation, regional government and downtown Monterey business and served on the Sanctuary Advisory Council for Monterey Bay.    I am proud to be on a City Council that has streamlined government while maintaining high levels of services.                                                                                                                          I humbly ask for your support again.
