“Over the past 16 years, Rhonda has worked to successfully solve traffic and development issues in her neighborhood. She has also served on three City volunteer boards including Planning and Zoning. Rhonda is the only Commission candidate who has presented a workable plan to reduce development density by amending codes that provide developers with special bonuses to build more than the current code allows. This is why I endorse Rhonda Anderson.  Please join me and vote for Rhonda Anderson for the Group 2 Commission seat.”

Frank Quesada
Commissioner

“I have known my neighbor, Rhonda Anderson, for over 30 years and witnessed her tireless efforts to improve pedestrian safety and reduce development density in our neighborhood. While I was a commissioner, I chose Rhonda as my Public Safety Board appointee. Rhonda later served on the Sustainability and Planning and Zoning Boards.

“Rhonda has the experience, passion, and ability to analyze and solve complex issues facing our City, and patiently engages residents. She focuses on what is good for the residents, and never wavers in that purpose.

“These are the reasons why I endorse Rhonda Anderson for the Group 2 Commission seat. Please join me and vote for Rhonda.”

Maria Anderson
Commissioner 
2001-2013


“Rhonda Anderson is the only Commission candidate for the Group 2 seat that has a solid plan to reduce density and increase set-backs and green space in our City. Rhonda’s plan will amend the Mediterranean Ordinance – a bonus program that incentivized larger developments with little or no set-backs and Rhonda will also require that residents receive notice of “as of right” commercial projects. Currently, NO NOTICE is required and our Planning and Zoning Board isNOT required to review “as of right” projects. This is why I endorse Rhonda Anderson. Join me and vote for Rhonda Anderson for the Group 2 Commission seat.”

Wayne Chip Withers
Commissioner
1991-2011


“Rhonda is smart, articulate and is always prepared. Rhonda patiently listens to all resident comments, has the ability to effectively analyze the issues facing our City and legislate for our citizens, and has consistently fought for better notice to residents.”
