My Top 3 Priorities

  • DIVERSITY- I am the only candidate who is a renter and is not retired. I will bring a unique perspective to Council. Renters, those on fixed incomes, working households, and our residents with inadequate housing deserve a representative.
  • TRANSPARENCY- I am transparent and accessible. I will respectfully listen to all residents, reply to when contacted, vote with integrity, and in a manner that puts our residents and local businesses first.
  • HOUSING- A long term housing solution will take collaboration with other Peninsula cities. It is time for PG to take leadership by becoming a part of the dialogue and solution.

Jenny McAdams- Pacific Grove City Council Candidate Statement I am a community organizer, mother, renter, and neighborhood advocate running for City Council. As a result of my hands-on life experience and passion for our community, I will bring an authentic voice with proven leadership to the City of Pacific Grove. As your Councilwoman I will look out for the best interest and safety of our neighborhoods, environment, and residents, utilizing the governing principles in the City Charter, General Plan, and Municipal Code. These imperative documents were written to guide the future of Pacific Grove and to protect our unique town. I will examine the short and long term impacts of my actions and will bring a strong voice for working households, those on fixed incomes, renters, and our residents with inadequate housing.
