My name is Phil Brock. I am a candidate for Santa Monica City Council. I am beyond distressed at the simple lack of listening, absorbing and responding to the current citizens of Santa Monica by the majority on the dais.
I Will Listen To You I can't promise I will be everything that each citizen wants but I will promise that I will listen. The citizens of Santa Monica who have invested so much of their lives in their neighborhoods must be respected. Our citizens have wisdom, they know why they moved to this place and what they want the future of Santa Monica to be. I do not believe that high rises, massive developments, streets that become canyons of buildings, or roads that can't be navigated by our families are what my grandparents moved to Santa Monica for in the 1920's. My family certainly did not settle in Santa Monica to be plagued by rampant crime or to be scared of our streets. We must restore public safety to our city. That is the highest priority our local government has in 2020.
I Am Committed to Reducing Crime and Restoring Public Safety Between the cacophony of major crime, burglaries, assaults, and robberies the dream of Santa Monica has been lost. We must have city council members with backbone, who are firmly committed to restoring the soul and safety of our city. I'm fed up! I hope you are as well. It's time to make a change.
I Will Support Slow Growth and Reduced Traffic All of us live in this magical city because of the simplicity of fresh air, palm trees, the fog, the sun, the ocean, the nearby mountains and our city's big, inclusive heart. I fear that heart is being lost. Big business wants to take the heart out of our city, to replace it with tall, dense buildings and twenty four hour a day traffic jams. That is not why I stayed in the city I was born in, that's not why my mother is still's the openness of Santa Monica that we like, it's that magical combination of great schools, superb green spaces, the ocean, the cool breezes and the notion that a city could be more humane, more livable and more unique that kept us here.
I Want to Hear From You Santa Monica is a treasure...let's keep it that way. I want to hear from my neighbors. I am happy to meet on your socially distanced street corners, via zoom, anywhere that is safe for all of us to discuss the issues that are important to Santa Monica and I hope I will have your support.
Please Donate Unlike the incumbents, whose campaigns are supported by developers and PAC’s, my campaign is only supported by each of you, my neighbors in Santa Monica. We are in a fight for the soul and safety of our town. Please donate today!

       An Independent Voice. A Lifetime of Experience.

Daylight Saving Time Should Be Permanent. The Pandemic Shows Us Why

COVID-19 maintains a stranglehold on American life, ensuring that fall 2020 will be anything but normal. Pandemic restrictions have left our nation grappling with a severe economic recession alongside a growing mental health crisis. While there’s no panacea for these problems, one simple step by Congress could help alleviate the pain: Passing federal legislation to make daylight saving time (DST) permanent.
