MARY SUE MAURER                            Age: 49
Occupation:  Mayor/Parent/Teacher

As the Mayor of Calabasas, it has been a privilege to serve Calabasas residents for the past four years.  We have accomplished so much in our beautiful city, now considered one of the most desirable places to live in California.

Fiscal and Management Oversight:
As the Mayor of Calabasas, I am proud of our council’s fiscal management policies, which resulted in one of the highest municipal bond ratings available for cities and numerous awards and recognitions.  Working together, the council brought in our new civic center on budget and on time.  We created a transparent and collaborative culture that resulted in sound policies and excellent and efficient services.

Keeping Our Community Safe:
Government’s primary responsibility is to protect residents’ health and safety.  Additional deputy sheriffs now patrol our streets and schools.  We established an emergency telephone system to alert specific neighborhoods or the entire city about emergency incidents.  We launched radio station, 1630AM, to keep the community continuously updated on emergency information.  We created a special needs database of residents that might need assistance in the event of a disaster.  And, we developed a model drive-thru flu shot clinic in preparation for a mass inoculation incident.

Protecting Our Environment:
Calabasas continues to lead on environmental issues.  Our projects and programs are often used as models for other cities. The civic center is one of the country’s highest rated “green” buildings.  We also continue to purchase available land to protect Calabasas’ treasure, our scenic mountains and open space.

Helping Public Education:
Two of my three sons attend A.C. Stelle Middle School.  As a parent and a teacher, I am aware of our school districts efforts to maintain high-rated schools during an unprecedented state budget crisis. The City of Calabasas responded by directly assisting our schools.  We gave grants to Calabasas schools to use for programs and equipment including new computers.  We provided funding for teacher and staff technology training. We funded a health needs assessment which resulted in the establishment of new health and safety procedures at all schools and the hiring of an additional school nurse.  We also expanded our library collection and free public events.

Calabasas is a great place to live, work and raise a family.  I am honored and humbled to represent our city.  I ask for your support and vote in my re-election campaign.  For more information visit .
