After more than 8 years on the City Council, including 2 terms as Mayor, 2 years as a Public Works Commissioner and 8 years as President of the Big Rock HOA, plus serving as President of the California Contract Cities Association representing over 70 cities, I know something about local government and what it takes to be effective. Doug Stewart has what it takes. He understands the issues and listens. I'm proud to join my fellow former Mayors in endorsing him. Doug is what Malibu needs right now and in the future.
Lou La Monte, Former Malibu Mayor
For more than 60 years, I have called Malibu home. During that time, I have seen my share of crises appear. How we emerge from those crises often depends on the leadership in place. Whether it is wildfires, evacuation routes, or budget shortfalls, Doug Stewart has the insight and experience to see us through difficult times. As a former Malibu Mayor, I’m endorsing Doug Stewart for Malibu City Council.
Ken Kearsley, former Mayor of Malibu
Doug has been my Vice Chair on the Public Safety Commission for the last two years. During my 16 year tenure, I have run into few others that possess so many of the necessary skills for this position on Malibu City Council. He is hardworking, extremely competent and understands the issues that we face here in Malibu, whether it is regarding the health and safety of our residents or the fiscal dynamics of a city of this size with such diverse topography. Malibu City Council will be lucky to have him.
Chris Frost, Chair of Malibu Public Safety Commission
I’ve spent that last 26 years involved in Malibu’s government either as a mayor, council member, or a planning commissioner and I think I have a sense of what works and what doesn’t. The past couple of years have been difficult and the next couple won’t be much better. I’m convinced Doug Stewart has the judgment and maturity to help lead Malibu through these difficult times.
Jeff Jennings, Former Mayor of Malibu and current Chair of the Planning Commission
Doug is smart, dedicated, experienced, and committed to serving our community with civility and respect.
