Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall Endorses
Ray Pearson for Carlsbad City Council District 3

Pearson identifies Growth, Homelessness, Traffic & Public Safety as key issues in Carlsbad's future
My primary reasons to serve on the City Council are the city’s increased crime rate (from 2020 to 2021), homelessness and traffic. Why hasn’t my opponent made reducing crime a priority? I am making reducing crime a priority and won't be satisfied until residents and businesses are feeling safe. It’s also important to retain police officers, and collaborate with the district attorney to monitor non-violent offenders released under Prop. 47. The latest crime stats regarding violent crimes (up 12%), burglaries (9.5%), motor vehicle thefts (9.2%) and thefts (9.1%) are of concern and the police need all available tools, along with “reinvigorating” Neighborhood Watch programs and perhaps more license plate readers.
