Jonathon Wolfson
Age: 38
Occupation: Lawyer
                 Planning Commissioner

As residents of Calabasas for many years, my wife and I cannot think of a better place to
raise our four children.  Calabasas offers a quality of life that is unmatched in our region.

As a Planning Commissioner, I have worked to protect our city and its environment.

Our great city will continue to flourish as long as we deal with the important issues facing
our lifestyle and government.  As a lawyer and a Planning Commissioner, I have worked
successfully with colleagues to find meaningful solutions to all outstanding issues.  Our
City Council must likewise be able to work together for the good of our community.

I ask for the opportunity to bring fresh ideas and a mature approach to the City Council.
The citizens of Calabasas should get the qualified leadership that they deserve.

My goals:

Traffic Congestion: Although the City of Calabasas has made strides in dealing with
traffic and reckless driving, now is the time to redouble our efforts.  I am strongly
committed to this as a major focus and priority of the city.

Schools: I understand the importance of giving our children the tools they need to excel.
I will work to enhance public education and support our teachers.  We also must ensure
that our schools are good neighbors within their own residential communities.

Environment:  As a steward of the natural beauty of Calabasas, I will fight to preserve
our open space and support our trail system, so that these gifts will exist for generations
to come.

Public Safety: I will be a steadfast supporter of our law enforcement and fire fighters.
We need to work to enhance the presence of these vital services to ensure public safety.

Emergency Services:  I will fight to improve our regional trauma care system to ensure
that our citizens have the best possible emergency services.

Senior Citizens: I understand the issues confronting the seniors in our community and
will be their strong advocate on the City Council.
