My Top 3 Priorities

  • Attract more businesses so the City does not depend soley on residents for funds via taxes or citations. This will be Win-Win because the City will get more revenues through economic developement and the residents have more retail options to enjoy.
  • Streamline the permitting process and make more affordable or free for basic home improvements, encouraging residents to improve. By incentivising and making it easy to improve our properties, will eventually improve our neighborhoods.
  • Will be relentless in improving our City, by cleaning parks, having safe strees and making public safety a priority.

Edgar Macias, educated at UC Berkeley in City and Urban Planning, started his business in Lawndale to pursue the American Dream, raise his family, and contribute to the community.  Over the years, like many of this neighbors, he's noticed a decrease in our quality of life- parking issues, unfair city citations, layers of city bureacracy for simple home improvements, unkept streets and parks. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

The purpose of the government is to serve the people, and Edgar Macias is running for City Council to make the government work for the people!  Also he plans to be accessible to all residents.  His direct phone number is 562-246-6780 and he lives at 4641 W 162nd Street, Lawndale CA 90260.  He wants you to tell him your problems and it will be his job to come up with the solutions.  As a business owner, he must be productive and solve problems otherwise he would be out of business.  He wants to take what he learned as a business owner and apply it to the City government to create a better Lawndale!
