Love for Atascadero

We plan to vote for Tom O’Malley for mayor of Atascadero.

Since we retired from our teaching positions in 2001, we have spent most of our volunteer hours establishing and helping at the ECHO homeless shelter. We have found that Tom O’Malley in his capacity as council member and mayor has been extremely helpful and encouraging to us. Tom served on the ECHO board for a few years and has helped guide our organization through years of decision-making. He personally finds time to serve meals once a month, and he even volunteers to be an overnight chaperone once a year. We see Tom taking part in many community events where our paths cross, and we sense that he truly loves Atascadero and lives to help build and sustain a better quality of life for us all.
