Education and Qualifications:
The next few years will be critical to Belmont and its financial future.
It is imperative that the next Council Member be able to hit the
Belmont's Pressing Issues:
Belmont is moving forward to embark upon a visioning process with our
general plan update. The city will be reaching out to all residents to give
them a unique opportunity to express how their city will look over the next
20 years. However, Belmont, like other California cities, is having serious
financial problems largely due to the State's massive deficit. Millions of
dollars may be siphoned from our cities and local school districts. Our city
desperately needs an infusion of capital to create a vibrant, accessible and
financially productive downtown.
Belmont is a beautiful city, full of potential in both its appearance and its
people. As a 30 year resident, and having raised my family here, I have
developed strong community ties. Additionally, with my own software
consulting business and with my mathematics educational background,
I am qualified to tackle the financial challenges facing the city. My recent
Planning Commission experience will be essential in the revitalization of
our greater downtown area. My experience as a City Council member and
Mayor is very important for these crucial financial times.
1. Maintain essential services such as police, fire, road repair, sewers and
2. Create a new downtown neighborhood, which will strengthen and
diversify our tax base while creating a village-like atmosphere;
3. Develop stronger ties with our public and private schools and with
Notre Dame de Namur University;
4. Enhance our playing fields and open space to provide more
recreational opportunities and programs for all age groups;
5. Protect neighborhoods by addressing traffic and parking issues; and,
6. Support volunteer programs to help offset city expenditures and to
provide residents the opportunity to get involved, contribute and meet
others with common interests.
My broad experience in city affairs and management coupled with a proven
track record of getting things done make me the ideal candidate for
Belmont City Council. It is critical to elect a person with a strong
commitment to Belmont's future. Demonstrate YOUR commitment to
Belmont's future - vote for Coralin Feierbach on June 3.
