Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Pat Eklund

Candidate for
Council Member; City of Novato

This information is provided by the candidate

Dear Neighbor,

I deeply appreciate the opportunity to have served you and our community as a Novato Councilmember, former Mayor, and former Planning Commissioner. I hope I can earn your support for my reelection campaign for City Council.

Public service is an honor and a privilege for anyone, but for me it means much more.

It means getting under the hood of city government and working to set smart priorities so we can make the very best decisions for taxpayers. It means standing up for our values and demanding better for Novato than politics-as-usual.

Most of all, it means being a good neighbor. That's why I am in the community + at your doorstep, school, or neighborhood event + not just during election time, but every day.

I started in public service by fighting City Hall over a stop sign in my neighborhood. I've been fighting ever since to keep Novato the great small town we all love.

Please join my campaign to protect and enhance our quality of life in Novato. You can always reach me at my home by phone at (415) 883-9916, by email at, or through my website at I appreciate your contributions to our community, and your vote. Thank you.

Your neighbor,
