BOB SIBILIA                            Age: 52
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 that prudently manages fiscal resources.

Now more than ever, Calabasas needs a representative unencumbered by the debt of political favors; an independent, objective voice with experience and proven local leadership. I offer a link to the accomplishments and wisdom of the early City Councils, without ties or obligations to current political insiders.  My past affiliations in Calabasas:

  • Mayor

  • 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

I received a Bachelor of Arts from UCONN, and graduated from Whittier College School of Law.

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 and A.C. Stelle Middle Schools, graduated from CHS and now attend public and private universities. We have gained a wealth of varied 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 and 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 upon my 25 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.

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 8, 2011.
