Candidate Ballot Statement

Peter Amundson
Small Businessman


Old Town and Surfside need a Councilmember with the energy and determination to get the job done:
    Increasing public safety to protect our streets and beaches day and night;
    Focusing attention on sustaining a balanced budget;
    Careful planning to hold onto our small-town charm.


Our local Firefighters support me because they know I will work to increase public safety and give them the tools to reduce 9-1-1 response times.


Former Chamber of Commerce President Deb Machen supports me because she knows that as a businessman, I will ensure projects like the pier and storm drains get finished on time and on budget.

And our current Councilwoman, Ellery Deaton, trusts that I’ll work with our residents and businesses to keep our downtown, our town.


As a youth sports coach and leader at my church, I’ve spent years trying to improve my community. Those efforts have only increased in recent years; volunteering with the Lions Club, Save Our Beach, Surfrider Foundation, Seal Beach Animal Care Center, and Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce.

We deserve a Councilmember who will work tirelessly for Old Town and Surfside. I’m determined to get the job done. I’m ready to get to work.

"The small-town character of Seal Beach drew my wife and me here.  Maintaining the village environment for the future is why I’m running.  As a businessman and community volunteer, I see three things that our town needs: Safety, Solvency & to remain Small." -Peter Amundson
