What La Mesa means to me

The day after Labor Day is traditionally the start of campaign season.

To be sure, I would be grateful if you contributed to my re-election campaign.  But I also want to take a step back and share with you what La Mesa means to me.

[Colin Parent, 18 months old at Collier Park]

I grew up in East County. We did not live in La Mesa, but La Mesa was always part of our life.

For years, we celebrated family birthdays at La Mesa’s Collier Park. I memorized musical theater lyrics and choreography at the La Mesa First United Methodist Church. In elementary school, I would meet up with friends and roller-skate at the Aquarius roller rink.

In short, La Mesa was fun!

Please contribute to my campaign so I can keep working to make La Mesa fun for families.

Today, I’m working to keep La Mesa safe and fun. I fought for you to keep the Farmer’s Market in the Village. I worked with our Police Department to secure funding for safe streets near our schools. And I championed a Climate Action Plan to ensure our environment will be safe for future generations.

You can help me continue to serve La Mesa with a donation today.

La Mesa had more than our fair share of heartaches and challenges this year. But I am wildly optimistic about our future. We have the power to choose our way forward. With your help, I can continue to fight for a La Mesa that works for everyone.

Thank you for your support!
