I have been meeting hundreds of Malibu residents weekly throughout this past month. We are a diverse fabric of tribes, yet between us all I hear a common thread that weaves us together: WE ALL LOVE MALIBU! If I had the opportunity to meet you, most likely I gave you a copy of Malibu’s Vision and Mission Statement (MVMS). It is a keepsake. Tape it to the inside of your kitchen cabinet. Put it somewhere you can occasionally see and be reminded of the foundation of our community. This is the common ground that unites us.
With a strong formula retail ordinance, we can uphold it. As our own school district, we can better support it. Whether you are a surfer, young family, working professional, health nut, sports enthusiast, local business owner, student, fisherman, real estate developer and perhaps even a chain store owner, we can all agree; in 2014 we want to protect our rural character, strong community, and ecological balance/natural beauty. Read more on these on my website at: www.lovelouks.com. In our culture, these three things most contribute to our quality of life, health, local economy, and property values.
By forming trusted alliances, so that our residents and businesses collectively support our MVMS, and by gathering a consensus of residents so that everyone’s voice is heard, I will represent the voice of our community. In 2014 let’s activate our full potential, and move into authority as residents who have come together with our collective voice. The world is watching us. Malibu, let’s step up and be role models in stewarding our planet responsibly. Step by step – and the first step is to vote, come out in record numbers, find our collective voice as residents, and vote to keep Malibu, Malibu.
With Love, June Louks
