Unopposed and committed

November 01, 2006

3. I will work to maintain the character of our coastal community by protecting ocean, harbor and bay views, securing open space and enhancing the Upper Newport Bay. While as a continuing member of City Council I am committed to providing quality police, fire, and lifeguard and recreation services. I am committed to maintaining a world class library system and continuing to provide seniors with services at Oasis. City facilities must be refurbished to good order particularly the Oasis center and public safety facilities. I will implement the signal synchronization system to improve traffic flow. I have worked on the technology plan. I will continue to lead our efforts in trying to prevent Irvine from developing the 20,000 high-rise condos at our border that generates more traffic in Newport Beach. I will work to preserve the flight curfew and enforce the settlement agreement. I will continue to work with each of you and my colleagues on City Council for the betterment of our community.

Don Webb:

1. Over the last four years I have demonstrated that I will fairly look at all sides of the issues that come to the City Council before trying to make an informed decision on what is in the best interests of all within the city. During the last year as mayor, I have shown that those coming before the City Council can expect to be treated fairly and be given an opportunity to express their views.

2. The City Council is responsive to the interests of the residents. Most of the actions taken by the City Council are in response to requests and input from residents. Residents are on committees, boards and commissions that review and make recommendations to the City Council on all elements of city operations that include arts, libraries, planning, aviation, recreation, building, water quality, and environmental issues just to name a few. The new general plan reflects extensive input from residents through surveys, outreach meetings, and advisory committees over a four-year period. Residents have an opportunity to comment on every item on the City Council's agenda before an action is taken. The city's webpage provides access to agendas for the various meetings and information on all parts of the city operations. Council members and staff are and will continue to be available to meet and speak with residents.
