Felix Bachofner - Seaside panorama

Welcome

Thank you for investigating my commitment to improve Seaside’s government and our wonderful community.

The endorsements page has been updated (November 5, 2012) to reflect the KRXA endorsement about which we just heard.  I have now been endorsed by every local newspaper and the only radio station which will make an official endorsement related to the Seaside mayoral election.

A 21 minute video overview (Your Town with Carl Kelleher) of my first term as Seaside Mayor has been uploaded to the video page.  If you have a bit of time, this video makes very clear why Seaside is better off now than in the recent past.


It has been a pleasure serving you as Seaside’s Mayor since December 2, 2010.  Since that time, major accomplishments have been made in Seaside’s fiscal responsibility (and correspondingly, fiscal health), development level and pace, public safety, and in external agencies where Seaside participates.

The results you will read about on these pages are the result of a lot of hard work.

For more than 4 years now, I have attended every single Seaside Council meeting — more than any of my fellow council members and former Mayor, City Manager and Deputy City Managers and any other staff person in regular attendance at City Council meetings.  I have also met with hundreds of stakeholders and groups and have spent an average of 45 hours each week representing and guiding the interests of the City of Seaside.

Due to my persistent, outspoken leadership on issues regarding City policies and finances, we have passed two balanced budgets without spending one penny of our hard earned reserves.

However, the work necessary for our City to thrive is not done.  I ask for your vote and support for my reelection this November.  Let’s not return to the multimillion dollar budget disasters of the prior administration.  We continue to deserve better results than we got between 2004 and 2010.  My administration can continue to improve on the great results we have delivered since my election in 2010.

My continuing pledge to you:

If reelected Mayor I will continue to respect community input and embrace the good ideas brought forth by our residents and businesses.  I will continue to make the Mayor’s office approachable through e-mail, phone and in person visits and will establish clearer published office hours.  All sectors of the community will receive equal representation — not just special interest groups and individuals.

We have begun a transition from an over-reliance on governmental sponsored "redevelopment" to promoting private development.  Property rights in Seaside must be made healthier.

The former leadership blames all its problems on the poor economy.  In reality, it was illogical City policies which had practically stopped development for 20 years — and many of those years included strong economic expansions.  Commercial projects bring sorely needed revenue into the City.  Only 6 significant such projects had been built during two decades.  This was an embarrassment of epic proportions.

In 2010 I suggested “Let’s change our approach to City government!” We did, and we now have the fastest pace of development at any time in the past 25 years.  In the 2 years since my election we have already seen 6 major new development projects begun (and one is already complete).  Is the nationwide economy improved?  Most would agree not.  Our City’s improving health must then be the logical consequence of improved local policies.

Please take a moment to read some of the critical issues facing Seaside.  Many of these issues have changed dramatically for the better since I was elected Mayor in 2010, but we still have a way to go.  This is why the Herald and the Monterey County Weekly have endorsed me so strongly.

I hope you’ll agree with Monterey County Weekly’s assessment that I am the one candidate who proposes specific solutions to these issues.  Then . . .

Please vote Felix Bachofner for Seaside Mayor by absentee ballot or on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.

Please come back again.  This web site is being continually developed.

And please tell all your friends!

In the meantime, don’t forget to register to vote if you have not done so already.  Registration for this November’s election must be postmarked by Monday, October 22, 2012!
