DON SEVRENS
(
Third term expires 2023)

I have  lived in Point Loma  for a half century and we raised two daughters, both with master's degrees from California schools. I am a lifelong journalist and investor. My hobbies include favorite walks, kayaking and peninsula dining.

As a volunteer, I have led the effort to to build a pocket park on Avenida de Portugal and am co-leading the drive to enhance the drab Voltaire Street bridge with dramatic railing and stylistic night lighting.

Small businesses starting on the Peninsula often need help in cutting red tape or getting the word out. I provide that pro bono. I helped introduce Jensen's to the community with a welcoming block party.

The board just completed an election despite the pandemic. Mail balloting  resulted in record turnout and should be considered again. With energetic new members, we can and should be a source of activism for our neighborhoods.
