California for All

The California Dream — the idea that every person can achieve a better life, regardless of where they start out — is central to who we are as Californians. Even in a time of economic growth and record employment, too many Californians are experiencing the squeeze of stagnant wages and the rising price of building-block necessities such as housing, health care, education, and child care. We can and must reanimate the California Dream, building a California for All.

Mayor

Ian Oglesby

As a candidate for the people, the concerns of his constituents always come first. All around us, we see the special interests of an influential few drowning out the needs of citizens. Mayor Oglesby’s vision for Seaside will focus on economic development, community safety, public health, youth education and empowerment, and jobs with a career pathway for all. Working with other community leaders, Mayor Oglesby is helping to pave the way for a more vibrant Seaside with a flourishing local economy and a strong sense of community.

Issues

Economic Development

Ian has led initiatives such as Campus Towne, a joint partnership with CSUMB that will diversify Seaside and ensure monetary growth. Ian has insured that Campus Towne brings in jobs to the Seaside residents by negotiating mandatory slots in the workforce. Campus Towne is projected to bring 1485 houses, 2 hotels, 150k square feet of retail/dining space, and about 50k square feet of Office Space.

Education & Youth Engagement

Developing Seaside Youth has always been important to Ian. As Mayor, Ian led the creation of the Resource Center Initiative. The Resource Center aims to circumvent the school to prison pipeline by providing youth development via mentorship, counseling services, tutoring, discussions on boundaries, a summer job/internship program that connects students with positions in City Hall/ trades, and connecting youth to mental health services.

Affordable Housing

Having access to affordable housing is important to Ian. Ian is working with local community partners to bring affordable housing to Seaside. Ian believes that affordable housing will lead to less people being homeless in Seaside, more chances for upward mobility, and investment in the city.

Reimagining Communities

Ian has always fought for community services and an end to systematic practices that disproportionately disenfranchise our black youth. Ian has allocated $500K to fund highly trained mental health workers that will respond to mercy and social calls.
