Council Member/ Candidate
My name is Dan O'Donnell and I'm running for Vista City Council District 4, because I believe in building a more beautiful and vibrant Vista. A Vista build on community and small business.
I believe that each and every decision should be driven by a long term vision for the future of our city and should be powered by everyday people. I believe that by bringing more voices to the table, leading with compassion, and building coalitions to solve problems, we can make Vista an even better place to live, work and connect with one another.
Generations of working hard, overcoming challenges, and believing that we can create a better tomorrow than we have today is the foundation of my deep belief in public service. While my family worked tirelessly, they were also fortunate to be beneficiaries of Unions, Veterans programs, and a Great Society that allowed working class people like them to get a leg up and not just survive but succeed in this country.
That is the core of my call to serve in public office. How can we, the representatives of the people of Vista, use the power of the city government to give back to the community? How can our city representatives work to build stronger neighborhoods, stronger families and a stronger economy that makes Vista a great place to live, work, and raise our families? I’m running this campaign using the grit and work ethic ingrained in me from the generations that came before in order to create a better path forward for our district and the City of Vista.
