Welcome friends and neighbors,

It is with great excitement that I announce my candidacy for San Marcos City Council, District 2.

I am humbled and amazed everyday to live in such a wonderful community. San Marcos is rich with culture and has earned a positive reputation for its beautiful neighborhoods, parks, trail systems, and is known as the educational hub of North County.

I have lived in San Marcos with my wife Amy for 22 years and our lives have been so deeply enriched by the City we call home. After graduating from CSU San Marcos in 2000, we moved into the Discovery Hills neighborhood where we enjoyed making new friends and walking around Discovery Lake most days.

In 2004 Amy and I moved into The Laurels neighborhood where we still live today and are raising our beautiful daughter, Brook, who attends San Elijo Middle School.

Innovative traffic solutions that reduce congestion, quality and safe neighborhoods to raise a family, recreational opportunities that support healthy lifestyles, fiscal responsibility in government, and a vibrant local economy that provide jobs, goods, and services in our community - these are the reasons I am running for City Council.

Thank you for visiting my website, please take a few moments to explore to learn more about me and my priorities for our community.

Lastly, if you have questions not answered here or want more information on any other city matters, I’d be happy to talk with you and encourage you to  call me directly  at (760) 207-7658.

Thank you again for visiting!

Mike Sannella
