Paso Robles City Councilman Steve Gregory has announced he will seek to retain his seat on the council.
He announced his candidacy at a recent reception at the Paso Robles Golf Club. He said he plans to run on a platform of getting things done for the city.
“I’ve worked hard to restore city services, fix the roads and reopen Centennial Pool,” he said.
In 2014, Gregory was appointed to the council after Steve Martin successfully ran for mayor, opening the council seat. Before assuming the seat, he was a planning commissioner for five years.
He said he has dedicated himself to streamlining the governmental process and making permitting and building easier. He supports economic development in the city, transparency in government and living within the city’s financial means.
During his career, Gregory was a small-business owner who developed and operated Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort in Avila Beach. He and his wife have lived in Paso Robles for 37 years.
In addition to Gregory’s seat, the seat of Councilman Fred Strong is also up for election. Gregory is the first person to declare candidacy for either seat.
Candidates can get their election papers starting this week.
