Dear Neighbor,

It would be an honor to again serve the people of Carson as your Mayor. I love Carson and I want to help our city navigate through these challenging times. I am a lifelong civil rights advocate, and have a proven track record of accomplishments for Carson. My leadership brought us in a new direction, with honest government, transparency, accountability and compassion, all with unprecedented growth and positive development that created jobs, balanced budgets, increased revenue, and most importantly big improvements in public safety for all of us. I hope to continue my tradition of service to Carson with your vote in this election.

Together let's improve:

  • Public health
  • Public safety
  • Youth service
  • The quality of life of families, children and senior citizens
  • Our economy
  • Protection for Mobilehome residents

I am honored to be supported by educators, law enforcement, nurses, firefighters, city commissioners, environmentalists, business people, organized labor and numerous Carson residents. Please join me in making Carson a better place to live and work.

I want to learn your concerns about how we can improve our city. Please contact me at 310-328-6212 or dearformayor@gmail.com.

God bless,
Jim Dear
