I am very carefully watching out for every dollar the City of Salinas Takes in and spends. This includes working hard to follow key recommendations to the city by outside groups including the Blue Ribbon Commission and Les White to deliver more efficient city services. This also includes supporting private fundraising efforts to aid our city in ways not already covered by tax dollars. Specific departments exploring private foundation support including police and library services.

I realize I am only one person. Success with the efforts described above will take numerous invitations to others that believe in Salinas as much as I do. I welcome your participation in your local government. As a councilman, I am at your service and encourage your regular communication with me at stevem@ci.salinas.ca.us or on my cell phone at (831) 288-3133
