I just spoke to Keith Mashburn who announced that he’s running for Simi Valley City Council. When he initially contacted me, I knew immediately who he was because I recall the quotes from him regarding the Candlelight Nightclub issues that I wrote about a while back. As a member of the Simi Valley Planning Commission, Keith Mashburn is someone who is definitely tuned in to Simi Valley current events.
Our conversation was brief, but I can tell that Keith is a genuine guy. He expressed real satisfaction that voters will have a choice in both City Council Candidates as well as Candidates for Mayor. With so many candidates, including two popular incumbents, I pointed out that it was definitely a long road ahead. With confidence, he simply replied, “I’m up to the task!” I believe him.
Keith Mashburn is currently putting together his campaign materials, including his website. When that information is ready, I’ll link to it. I sincerely hope that Keith opts to take advantage of the beneficial “network effect” of the social media tools, such as Facebook.
Best wishes to Keith and to his campaign. As I receive updates from the Keith Mashburn camp, I’ll post them here!
