Mary Sue Maurer
Occupation: Businesswoman/Parent/Education Commissioner
More than a decade
ago, my husband and I moved to Calabasas, choosing to raise our
three boys here because of our city's location in the
beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, excellent
public schools and our
desire to live in a community with a small town feel.
I am running for the
Calabasas City Council because I believe Calabasas needs new
and fresh ideas to help our special city reach its full
potential. My background, long-time
involvement in and
knowledge of our community and my ability to get things done will
make an immediate difference for all Calabasas residents.
