MEET DOUG STEWART
WHY I AM RUNNING
My wife Sharon and I have been Malibu residents for over 20 years. I’m running for Malibu City Council to help protect and preserve the beautiful city we all call home. From the Woolsey fire to the COVID-19 pandemic, our community has recently faced unprecedented challenges that have tested our resolve. Now more than ever, we need experienced leadership that can help see us through these crises, while also preparing us for whatever might come next.
With decades of business experience in finance, investment, and budget management, I know what it takes to get through both the good and bad economic times. I’ve also served in numerous local leadership roles, including serving as Vice Chair of the Public Safety Commission. As your City Councilman, my top priorities will include public safety, stimulating the local economy, wildfire prevention and control, homelessness response, the preservation of Malibu’s nature and beauty, and local control. Together, I know that our community can overcome any challenge that comes at us, while also protecting and preserving the things we love most.
