This information is provided by the candidate

There is no single set of criteria that qualifies someone for public office but a combination of people and leadership skills plus volunteerism would be a good start. If so then Don Reeves is certainly in that category as a candidate for the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council. From president of high school and engineering college senior classes to senior management positions at TRW (now Northrup Grumman) to positions on several community Boards he has a history of creative leadership. He is a 27 year resident of RPV with his wife, Barbara, and two grown daughters who graduated from Miraleste High School and UCLA/UCSD. He has served on the Miraleste Recreation & Park District Board in several capacities including Chairman during which time he won a Grant from the DOF which allowed the planting of 60 trees. Perhaps most notable is his involvement with the California Academy of Mathematics and Science (CAMS) Mentor Support Association as past president during which time he won a state Grant of $225,000 for the program. He has also served on the Boards of the Community Association of the Peninsula (CAP) and the Engineering Alumni Society of the University of Michigan. A self described rocket engineer rather than rocket scientist he managed both programs and organizations with over 300 people and budget responsibilities in excess of $30M per year
