“YOU REALIZE THAT OUR MISTRUST OF THE FUTURE MAKES IT HARD TO GIVE UP THE PAST.”

– CHUCK PALAHNIUK

My name is Zach Gibson, and I am running for Mayor of La Verne, CA.

My passion for this community is unmatched. I have lived here the majority of my 30 years, have grown up and grown as an adult here, experienced what La Verne is as a community and have seen the potential in what its people have to offer the future of our city.

I see the current, long term incumbent and his office as part of an entrenched system of established complacency here that is failing its citizens, and failing the community in so many ways.

I have been interested in running for mayor since i turned 18, but felt that now was the time to follow through, as my other opponent was unable to in 2017.

I feel that despite their differences, neither are advocating for, investing in, and are collectively holding back the city and the members of their community they claim to believe in.

I see so much potential in the residents of La Verne, and I am concerned at the lack of options and incentives that would continue to foster the multigenerational community La Verne prides itself on.

I want to foster what is needed to keep the community feel of the city while addressing changes that bring progress and push for a tangible, solid future for the city.

Through my positions – and I want to offer you potential solutions, not just positions – I hope to win your support for the mayoral office of our city.
