I feel there are very few politicians who are good human beings. Tom O’Malley is a good person and a good politician. He’s the first person to roll up his sleeves and do the work with either Kiwanis, winemakers’ dinners or the events held at the Portola Inn.
As a business owner, I appreciate that he is trying to foster events and organizations that will attract new customers for our whole town — not just downtown. He is one of those people who really wants things to go well for everyone and not just his own interests.
Because he is humble, I feel that he doesn’t toot his own horn enough, so I would just like to say that Atascadero is lucky to have Tom O’Malley as mayor. With his guidance, our town can thrive.
