OFFICIAL CANDIDATE STATEMENT


FOR MEMBER OF THE CITY COUNCIL


NAME:            MARK E. PULIDO
Age:               46
Occupation:    Councilmember, City of Cerritos

Thank you Cerritos for electing me in 2011. I am honored to serve as your Mayor for 2014-2015. I am grateful to give back to my hometown of 42 years.

My wife Gloria and I grew up here and graduated from ABC schools.  After UCLA and the University of Chicago (Master of Public Policy), we returned to raise our family here – one of the safest, prosperous and dynamic communities in America.

As Mayor, I work tirelessly to address your concerns, calls, letters and e-mail and try to solve problems with a compassionate, common sense approach.

I delivered on these priorities:

Public Safety: Focused on reducing residential burglaries; maintained the lowest emergency response time in the County (3 minutes);

Neighborhood Improvement: Repaired streets, sidewalks; renovated park playgrounds, equipment, courts; replaced hundreds and trimmed thousands of trees;

Economic Growth:  Approved renovations at Auto Square; Fountain Plaza (85°C Bakery, Creamistry); Cerritos Plaza (OSH); College Square (In-N-Out); Los Cerritos Center (Harkins Theaters, Cheesecake Factory);

Quality of Life:  Opened Library Teen Studio; Council directed Parks Commission to study proposed Dog Park; approved new residential developments and new Kaiser Medical Building.

Together, let’s keep Cerritos great!

I respectfully ask for your vote.
