Moreno for council

I support Heather Moreno for Atascadero City Council. As a local businesswoman and longtime resident of Atascadero, I feel we’re at a pivotal point in determining our future.

We need strong leadership to guide Atascadero toward becoming a destination for our residents to shop and thrive, and for tourists to find our beautiful city. We need a strong downtown and must improve our infrastructure. I believe Heather will work toward these goals for Atascadero.

I value Heather’s experience, including a BA in accounting and working as a CPA for a “Big Four” accounting firm. She currently chairs the city’s Finance Committee and formerly served on the Planning Commission, including as chair. Since her appointment to the council, Heather has consistently displayed an understanding of our city’s needs. She shows a true aptitude for talking to people one-on-one and expresses a deep interest in understanding the needs of our citizens. I trust Heather to promote local business, protect our city’s financial future and explore avenues to bring tourism to Atascadero.

Heather gives many selfless hours to volunteering in our local community. I admire her generosity, intelligence and dedication to our city.

I strongly support Heather Moreno for Atascadero City Council.
