FOR CALABASAS CITY COUNCIL
MARY SUE MAURER
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
