My Top 3 Priorities

  • Mitigate traffic by preventing further gridlock along PCH and other corridors, preventing traffic growth from dense overdevelopment, and enhancing pedestrian and bicycle safety.
  • Revitalization done right! Include community input on development projects, and preventing “Concrete Canyon” developments. Ensure developments are approved and built within zoning restrictions.
  • Transparent & resident-friendly government, including online progress tracking of projects and proposals, and online reporting of City government activity.

Biography

As a life-long South Bay resident, I work and play throughout Redondo Beach. I understand our communities character and will make sure that Redondo doesn’t become a traffic nightmare like the west side, or the density of concrete canyons. Preserving the lifestyle of Redondo and balancing a sensible, sustainable growth is my goal.


Drawing upon a deep connection to the Community

   Small Business Owner
As a small business owner, I build websites, social media platforms and technology solutions for businesses to thrive on. This experience will help me get our City government to become more transparent and proactively inform residents of upcoming projects and events.

    Los Angeles County Lifeguard for 20 years on our local beaches

Working for the last 20 years on our local beaches, I understand the value of local community oriented public safety services. We should be working more with our fellow Beach Cities to ensure that these services stay local with a high level of service.

    Junior Lifeguard Instructor for 17 years

As a former Junior Lifeguard and now Instructor I can attest to the value of a quality ocean safety program.

    Lifelong South Bay Resident

Born and raised in the South Bay, I understand that we are not Santa Monica, nor do want to be. Improving South Redondo, our beach-town character will always be my goal.

Political Beliefs

The decision to run for local office was not made lightly, but became evidently clear with the current direction of this City. With Save The Riviera, Nils worked with a team of community members to get a viable project approved by the City Council, that has all the hallmarks of success: proper traffic management, community character, commercial development for tax revenues and community approval.

With Rescue Our Waterfront, Nils lead community meetings, community Harbor walks, co-lead a signature gathering effort and co-wrote The King harbor C.A.R.E. Act. Now Measure C, a ballot Measure paid for by the people, written by the people, signed by the people, lead by the people: this is progress. The measure spells out specific zoning, which the current waterfront plan can conform to, without raising taxes.

This is more than just progress, these are actionable items of accomplishments to move the community together as one harmoniously sync'd symphony. That's why I am walking door-to-door, to hear people's concerns and ensure that we are truly represented, not rubber stamping $400 MM projects in the Harbor. Our Pier needs revitalization, not a Mall. Make these projects better, not stop them. Ensure that this communities character is alive and well, through organized positive leadership that brings results.
