Politics In IB

It’s not news that Serge is IB mayor and has a non profit that benefits from the lime light. Question is why is he lobbying his own people into city council. First Mark West, his yes man, and now Paloma Aguirre who works directly for Wildcoast. Paloma, not an IB resident long enough to be running for city council, is backed by Wildcoast and even Mark West on her campaign page. What does Wildcoast have up its sleeve for Imperial Beach that it would need all these insiders. Wildcoast as a non profit sure has a lot of benefits coming its way, not sure if it’s legal though.

Let me know what you think

    Hi Dane, I read your short piece and was left pretty cold. To run for an elected office, one should have some ideas on "improvements" that would benefit our community. Calling someone a "yes man" tells me nothing or saying that someone has not lived in our community long enough says nothing.

    We have a community that, it appears to me, is and will be going through some substantial changes over the next decade so, what's your plan? What's your approach? Where are we falling short of the mark? What should we be talking about, Dane?

    Paloma has lived in IB long enough to legally run for office. You may disagree but the law is pretty clear. Wildcoast is a non-profit organization, and as such does not and cannot take positions on political candidates (even if two of their leaders are candidates) without jeopardizing their 501c3 status. Mark West is nobody's "yes-man" but a Navy veteran and businessman who surfs and rides his bike all over IB all the time and loves this town. All three of these people are looking to(or are currently) serving countless hours for FREE to try to represent the residents of IB and make this town a better place to live work and play. Dane it is such a hard and thankless job I would applaud anyone who would run. And since IB is a really poor city, what would Wildcoast have to gain? They don't do anything the city funds anyway. If there were "upsides" don't you' think they'd run in Coronado where there's tons of dough?
