• Brian Brooks declares candidacy for Pacific Grove City Council

    Brian Brooks, a businessman and resident of Pacific Grove since 1998, has announced that he will run for City Council in the November 4 election.

    I have decided to seek a council seat, my first try at elective office, after giving the matter deep thought,” he said. “My wife, Theresa, and I feel that Pacific Grove is a very special and gorgeous place to live in and raise our young daughter. It has a great civic spirit and an involved citizenry. We love its small-town feel and warmth.”

    Brooks said that he considers himself “an action taker and someone, if the voters elect me, who would work on the City Council to bring together the various perspectives of our residents. Agreement based on mutual respect and understanding is always better than division. As a businessman and a real estate agent, I know about the kinds of negotiations that benefit all parties and I have the ability to dispassionately assess risks.”

    He and his wife operate Brooks Real Estate in New Monterey and have four employees.

    In my profession, I am keenly aware of the need to preserve the unique charm of Pacific Grove, and why it is so fondly called ‘The Last Hometown,'” he said.

    Three council seats and the office of mayor are on the ballot in November.
