“Long Beach can do better...we can grow our economy, create jobs, and make Long Beach an even better place to live, work, learn, and raise a family. It will take hard work and a new sense of community, accountability and dedication at City Hall. Together, we can do it. I hope you’ll join me.”
A New Vision for Long Beach
Damon Dunn is a local businessman who, after successful careers in the NFL and commercial real estate, is committed to making Long Beach a better place to live, work, learn and raise a family. He wants to take the skills he’s learned to manage, motivate, and lead to make Long Beach neighborhoods stronger and safer.
No stranger to adversity, Damon earned a path out of poverty through hard work on the football field and in the classroom – earning a scholarship to Stanford University where he played football and graduated with a degree in public policy.
Damon will focus on growing the Long Beach economy by providing real opportunities for residents by helping balance the city’s budget and restoring cuts to public safety, libraries, and the arts. He’ll promote strong partnerships with our local schools by stretching school and city resources even further to better meet the needs of Long Beach students and families.
Damon Dunn Will Lead Real Change at City Hall
City Hall has become isolated and focused on the agenda of power brokers, not citizens.
Damon Dunn will bring transparency, accountability, and trust back to City Hall by leading a neighborhood-by-neighborhood goal setting and planning process to make sure the city provides the services citizens want, not what special interests demand.
Damon will build strong, lasting communities by:
- • Rebuilding Long Beach’s economy by cutting red tape, providing incentives and streamlining city hall so business can grow and create good jobs.
- • Dedicating new revenues from a growing economy to restoring cuts to public safety and improving response times to keep our neighborhoods safe. Making a firm commitment to 4 sworn firefighter engines and 2 sworn firefighter/paramedic rescues.
- • Promoting partnerships with local schools to advance after school learning, community services, libraries and the arts.
- • Fighting waste and inefficiency to squeeze desperately needed resources from City Hall for real services the people of Long Beach need.
