Age: 46
Occupation: Consumer Attorney

Primary goal: Make Calabasas the premier community to raise a family in Southern California.  All citizens benefit by strengthening our property values and ensuring a safe community. 

Calabasas needs experienced, proven local leadership.  These are my past and present affiliations in Calabasas:

City Councilman
Parks and Recreation Commissioner
Agoura/Calabasas Community Center JPA Chairman/Board Member
CPHA Board Member
"Principal for the Day" Bay Laurel and A.E. Wright Schools
Teen Court Judge
Member Calabasas Wall of Fame, located in City Hall
Member Calabasas Chamber of Commerce

My wife Ellen and I moved to Calabasas in 1991, to provide our children with an excellent public school education, in a safe, small-town atmosphere.  Our girls attended Bay Laurel Elementary School, A.E. Wright, A.C. Stelle Middle Schools and now Calabasas High School.  I will create a stronger, cooperative tie with the Las Virgenes Unified School District, to collectively work for our children and community.

As Parks and Recreation Commissioner I helped develop the Parks Master Plan.  I supported the creation of the now successful joint use agreement with the LVUSD which has provided badly needed playing fields and recreational resources for our City's youth and adults, while preserving our precious open spaces for passive, unintrusive uses.

I will advocate a Youth Master Plan, providing more creative, nurturing programs for our young people, and involve them in the planning process.

Traffic congestion remains unacceptable.  I will not bow down to developers who prioritize profits, increase traffic and adversely impact our valued quality of life in Calabasas.  I will continue my long stance of supporting only slow, controlled growth.

Many vital Council decisions regarding litigation and land-use are made out of public view, in closed session.  With my eighteen years experience as a civil litigator, in both California and Hawaii and expertise as a licensed California real estate broker, I will make informed, educated decisions, always with the best interests of Calabasas in mind.

Once back in office, I pledge to adhere to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism, respectful of both colleagues and opponents and receptive to the ideas of our citizens.

It would be my honor and privilege to once again serve as a member of the Calabasas City Council.  Contact me at (818) 591-1812 or to discuss any issue.  I respectfully ask for your vote on March 8, 2005.

Vote Bob Sibilia.  A change, without taking a chance.
