Vote Abe Lincoln for SLO City Council

We want SLO to be the small town of the future, not the past. I envision a new kind of small town charm, with beautifully designed homes and businesses, ecologically built and available to all residents. I see a place where neighbors take care of neighbors, period.

I believe that someday the nation will look to SLO as the leader in smart growth and social justice.

My Priorities

Meet Abe

I first came to San Luis Obispo in 1988 to attend Cal Poly as a Business Major; my time here transformed me and began to define me. The natural course of events followed: I graduated in 1992 and moved away to start my career. I had only been here a short time, but I truly left my heart here. SLO has always been a mystical, magical place in my memories, a place to which I really hoped to return. 25 years later I finally did. And my family fell in love with it just I had done all those years earlier.

Undoubtedly, the Central Coast is one of the most beautiful places in the country, but it’s not just the landscape I am referring to, its the hearts and minds of the people who inhabit this lovely town. I have traveled to over 200 cities in this country in the last 10 years and I can honestly say there is nothing like San Luis Obispo. Which is why I am thrilled beyond belief to once again call it my home.

Inspiration

Many things inspired me in my youth here as a student - the ideals of integrity, innovation, diversity, and the ability to have long open discussions on any topic; the ability to disagree but find compromise; lasting friendships, the camaraderie with any other Cal Poly alum I ever happened to meet; the foundational philosophy of “Learn By Doing;” the overwhelming expansion of new ideas and new thoughts. I vividly recall when, in 1990, SLO became the first municipality in the world to ban smoking indoors. I absolutely believed that this was a place that was something special, a place with a bold and pioneering spirit.

And to this day, I still believe in that spirit.
