In my opinion there is no real choice if we all wish Morro Bay to remain a viable city. John has shown himself to be a very engaged in our total community and serving all interests in the city. The fact is that Morro Bay is a vacation destination and our local economy depends on leadership considering business interests serving our benefactors (The guests in our town) and residents alike. John and the City Councils task is one that is very difficult to navigate due to the various stakeholders and the fact that in almost all decisions there will be people unhappy. It's the sign of a true leader to stay focused on the facts and not be swayed by emotion and the noise that we find in politics today. The decision making in our city is what will determine our future, bright or bleak.
Morro Bay is at a critical junction due to the cities budget shortfall, the shock of COVID-19, rising ocean levels, and our ever expanding population. The decisions our leaders make in the next 2 years will make all the difference in our collective futures. It's not a time to question proven leadership and adopt radical methods or postures that will only lead to failure and pain for all of us in the city.
I embrace the vision that John has shared with me where Morro Bay evolves to be more than the budget destination on the Central Coast. Our city is very special and can be so much more with the sustained leadership we have enjoyed over the last 2 years. As a business owner living in Los Osos I don't have a vote but I encourage each of you to vote for John and stay with a proven leader. I really don't want to imagine where our city will be if we don't make the right choice. These are critical times needing critical thinking on our choice for Mayor of Morro Bay. Please support John Headding for this important job and stay the course.

We have been lucky to have a calm and civil leader as Mayor these past two years. Under John Headding the City is finally going in the right direction, with the WRF well under way and award-winning fiscal management. There's more to do, so let's stay the course with John and get it done right.
It has been an honor serving with Mayor Headding. He understands the issues facing the City. He does his research, is thoughtful and reasoned, and listens. The City needs his continued leadership.

Mayor Headding is the clear choice for Morro Bay's future, he has a real vision to improve the lives of residents and our economy while maintaining the character of the city. During these difficult times we need an experienced leader who has a broad understanding of the many aspects required to make our city thrive again. I'm concerned that if other parties gain city leadership it will be a significant blow to our small businesses, employees and our local economy. Let's make the smart choice and re-elect Mayor Headding, it's the right path forward. Thank you John for your service to the city.
John Headding's leadership in Morro Bay, both as Mayor and as a City Councilmember, has been focused on ensuring our future as an independent, vibrant, and sustainable city. John's business background, including owning his own business, will help him create a robust post Covid-19 economic recovery needed for our businesses while his health care experience, as a pharmacist, helped Morro Bay develop programs to keep residents safe from the virus. In challenging times like these, John is a visionary leader with a proven track record and boundless energy to keep moving Morro Bay forward. Let's re-elect Mayor Headding!
