Oceanside CA— As an Oceanside City Councilmember, Ryan has led efforts that reduced crime, delivered balanced budgets and increased transparency and trust in our government. He brought forward a term limit coming to this fall’s ballot, a first-ever ordinance for short-term rentals, a second Homeless Outreach Team, a policy towards making our budget motels more family friendly and many other efforts. In response to COVID, Councilmember Keim worked with City Staff to implement policies that aggressively addressed the health crisis and kept our per-capita infection rate among the lowest in the county. Simultaneously, Ryan worked extensively with small businesses to develop creative solutions including the creation of the Economic Recovery Task Force, the connection of suppliers to food-insecure seniors, assisting businesses move outdoors and more.
Ryan states “As we move past the health crisis, we need to address our other pressing challenges-I will confront the homeless crisis and crime associated with it head-on through a compassionate but tough approach, I will protect taxpayer money, preserve Oceanside’s unique character and ensure our seniors and veterans receive the services they deserve.”
