RICK ROBINSON FOR OCEANSIDE CITY COUNCIL DISTRICT 2
I am asking for your vote on November 8, 2022.
What I stand for
Being a productive councilmember will require building consensus with the mayor and fellow councilmembers. Keeping District 2 and all of Oceanside on a financially solid path will take establishing relationships and understanding the wants and needs of our residents. I have the experience and skill set to accomplish this and keep our city moving forward.
The path to success is recognizing the city council is a team of five. Accomplishments can only happen when you have three votes.
I hold several degrees and professional certifications, including a Bachelor’s in Technical Education and a Master’s in Organizational Management. I have attended the National Fire Academy for professional development and am a graduate of the Executive Fire Officer course of study. My passion in the fire department has always been Emergency Medical Services, and I have maintained my paramedic license for 40 years.
One of my greatest honors, was to have worn the uniform of a U.S. Navy sailor. I joined the U.S. Naval Reserves at 32 years of age. Coming from a family with a long military history, I always felt as if I had missed a calling. Leveraging my paramedic training and experience, I became a FMF Corpsman (HM1). A reservist for a total of eight years, I was called to active duty in support of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm in 1990.
As our children grew up in Oceanside, Cheryl and I were deeply involved with their schools. Cheryl began as a Noon Duty at Reynolds Elementary and would stay with the district for 19 years (13 full-time) until her retirement in 2018. We served on the ECHS Athletic Booster Club during the kid’s high school years. Other community services included the Oceanside’s Human Relations Commission (Past). I am member of American Legion Post 760 and serve as the current Finance Officer. We also support the Oceanside Boys & Girls Club, where I serve on the Programs and Personnel Committee. As Fire Chief I have had the honor to speak to several of the city’s service clubs, including Kiwanis, Lions, Rotary, the Oceanside Women’s Club, and the North County African Americans Women’s Association’s youth mentoring program.
“I have a lot of service left to give and I know that as a City Councilperson for the City of Oceanside and specifically for District 2, I can continue to make a difference for others.
I am asking for your vote on November 8, 2022.”
