Neil Farrell has worked as a newspaperman in the community for the past 18 years and describes himself as an expediter. “I’m the guy who rolls up his sleeves and gets the job done,” he said.
He advocates having the city take over Morro Bay State Park from the state. The city could do a better job of managing the park’s three lucrative businesses – the restaurant, golf course and campground, he said.
Farrell wants the city to be more of an activist on behalf of fishermen and fight proposals that hurt them such as closures and catch shares. He would develop a precise plan for the future of the power plant site.
