My name is Eli Beckman, and I'm a lifelong resident of Corte Madera and a local architectural designer and Flood Control Board member.

It's been my great fortune to grow up in our wonderful town, a town that's helped me build a fulfilling life as part of our unique and vibrant community. 


Living in Corte Madera has given me a great appreciation for all the things that make our town so special: tranquility, community, and a strong respect for nature. I'm deeply grateful for the life Corte Madera has given me, and now it's my turn to give back.


That drive to give back has led me to help our town prevent flooding as a member of the Flood Control Board, to raise money for charity as a member of the Corte Madera Lions Club, and to enhance our collective safety as an Incident Commander in my Neighborhood Response Group. These are rewarding experiences I look forward to continuing—but I want to do more. That's why I'm running for Town Council.

If elected to the Town Council, I'll do this by following my passion for making things work well. I'll advance the needs of our community and make Corte Madera a better place to live for all its residents by working with my colleagues and neighbors to strengthen what's great about our town, and to fix what is yet to be great. It's a meaningful job I'm eager to undertake—but I can't do it without your support.

All I ask is your vote.
