Seeking to bring diversity to the face of the city council, an emphasis on more green initiatives and policies that foster affordability for renters and buyers, Dionne Ybarra has announced her candidacy for mayor of Pacific Grove.
The candidate said her Mexican-American heritage represents one of many diverse groups that have come to live in P.G. from all over the world bringing different cultures, languages, and perspectives.
Every Election Needs A Politically Correct Candidate
A newcomer running against a status quo new comer. Doomed.
Peake will face fellow Councilman Rudy Fischer, who has served on the council since 2010. Last month Fischer officially tossed his hat in the ring for November’s mayoral race. Fischer said he wanted to continue the council’s current policies and direction including improvements to the city’s infrastructure and noted the importance of upcoming roadway renovation
*From Coast Weakly October 9, 2014:
We recommend adding Bill Peake to the council. A newcomer to both the city and its political landscape, Peake is a retired Chevron engineer who bought a house in the city 25 years ago, but only moved in full time four years ago.

Better find a decent pick for mayor before P.G. starts to look like Stockton.
He won in a landslide, and the four-year adventure turned into a 10-year journey, after winning the mayor’s seat two more times in 2014 and 2016.
The journey is now officially coming to an end, Kampe announced Tuesday, May 29, in an emailed statement.
He and his wife, Cheryl, are ready to do new things together, which they have postponed during this stint on the council.
Oh, and one steps up in favor turning P.G. into Stockton
Councilmember Rudy Fischer announced later the same day that he is running for mayor.
He said as mayor he would “pretty much continue the council’s current policies and direction.”
