BOB SIBILIA                 Age: 50
Occupation: Consumer Attorney

Primary goal: Make Calabasas the premier community in Southern California to raise a family. All citizens benefit by assuring strong property values, in a safe, clean community through sound fiscal policy.

When dissenting opinion on our City Council becomes labeled as divisive and disruptive, and is then eliminated, the democratic process is weakened. Calabasas needs a representative unencumbered by the debt of political favors; an independent, objective voice with experience and proven local leadership. These are my past affiliations in Calabasas:

City Councilman
Parks, Recreation and Education Commissioner
Agoura/Calabasas Community Center Joint Powers Chairman/Board Member
CPHA Board Member
"Principal for the Day" Bay Laurel and A.E. Wright
Teen Court Judge
Member Calabasas Wall of Honor
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, A.E. Wright, A.C. Stelle Middle Schools and are recent graduates of Calabasas High School. We have gained a wealth of varying experiences over these years. With this unique perspective I will work with the LVUSD for the collective benefit of our children and community.

Preservation of our open space and trail systems will be a top priority.

Traffic congestion remains unacceptable. I will not bow down to developers who prioritize profits over 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. I will make informed, educated decisions based on my 23 years experience as a civil litigation attorney in both California and Hawaii and expertise as a licensed real estate broker. I will advocate a dissenting opinion when appropriate, always in a civil manner and in the best interests of Calabasas.

Once back in office, I pledge to adhere to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism, respectful of both colleagues and opponents. I will always listen to the ideas and concerns 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) 687-4711 or to discuss any issue. I respectfully ask for your vote on March 3, 2009.

Vote Bob Sibilia. Change, without taking a chance.
