Steve, a City Councilman who is termed out this year in District 4, is a candidate for Redondo Beach city treasurer in elections to be held May 14.
Of all the contenders for city treasurer, Steve’s campaign is proposing the most substantial changes for the office. Having reviewed the functions and pay of treasurers in similar-size cities, he has concluded that Redondo’s budget is “super-sized” and exceeds revenues from city investments. He argues the treasurer’s salary should be cut to an amount commensurate with the work hours needed to get the job done. Even still, he said, he’d devote more time to audits and collections.
