January 29, 2013
STATEMENT By ELECT KEVIN RICE COMMITTEE
San Luis Obispo – Kevin Rice, proponent of open and democratic government, has announced he is seeking to fill the upcoming SLO City Council vacancy concurrent with Andrew Carter’s resignation. A twenty-year resident and former Cal Poly student, Rice has actively attended city council and county meetings advocating for citizen access to the local government process.
“Together, we can realize fiscal prudence, unfetter business and head-of-household job creation, repair infrastructure, and realize near-term, cost-effective, and Constitutional homeless solutions. Our City is blessed with beauty and richness,” Rice said. “We can protect that character and achieve more.”
Rice is a stalwart for process, and having been a years-long observer and participant in San Luis Obispo, he would step into the role with a solid knowledge of the issues and a desire to increase public participation. Rice, 44, is registered “no party preference” and has voted in every election since becoming eligible to vote. Known for independent thought and consideration for multiple points of view, Rice embraces the non-partisan quality of the council member post.
