A Word from City Council Candidate and Mayor Pro Tem Marsha McLean
I believe in getting things done. I am currently Mayor Pro Tem and, even though we have a great city, we cannot be complacent. Therefore, I always look forward to improve on what we already enjoy in Santa Clarita. I began my career working for the Los Angeles Police Department. After several years I worked for a City of Los Angeles Councilman at L.A. City Hall and in his field office. I then worked for the United States Government at the American Embassies in Tel Aviv, Israel and Paris, France. I met my husband in Paris; we were married in New York and drove to California. We moved to Santa Clarita in 1973, we have three grown children and six grandchildren.
I am your full-time councilwoman, available every day to answer your e-mails, speak to you by phone, visit with you at City Hall or stop to chat with you while out and about in our community.
Unlike many cities in California, Santa Clarita is in great shape with a balanced budget and a 20 percent reserve to be used in case of an emergency. I have been working with the community on major concerns such as public safety, traffic improvements, parks, open space and youth and safety programs – and I have provided solutions. My extensive background working with county, state and federal legislators, my active involvement in non-profit organizations and my experience as a businesswoman have given me the ability to develop partnerships that create positive results for our community.
While we’ve achieved so many great things, there is still much to be done. In my next term, you can count on my commitment to our community and continuing to work on protecting our neighborhoods, improving our economy, creating high paying jobs, improved housing, expanding our roads, and preparing for the future. Please vote for me – Marsha McLean, on November 6.
