City of Carmel-by-the-Sea
JASON BURNETT
Age: 37
Occupation: Mayor and Businessperson
It has been an honor to serve as your Mayor and to work
with our City Council and staff. We have made substantial
progress and have often found broad consensus:
• We put a $1 ,327,451 budget surplus into reserves for
the future, maintained our AA+ credit and refinanced
debt, saving $4 million,
• The voters overwhelmingly approved a sales tax
measure, which helps ensure Carmel's quality of life,
and
• We are investing in improvements to Carmel-by-the-
Sea's streets, parks, facilities and the beach.
Regionally, I help oversee the water supply projects
and successfully negotiated substantial savings for
ratepayers. I also helped complete fundraising for the
Veterans Cemetery.
Our goals for 2014 include active parking management,
investments in beach, forest, trail, and park improvements,
development of a Sunset Center campus plan, and
maintaining excellent public safety service and response
times.
As your Mayor, I will continue to promote the energy and
creativity of our citizens who make our economy and our
community so vibrant, protect our village's character and
natural beauty, tackle the tough issues in an open, honest
manner, and respect all points of view.
With your support and vote, I look forward to serving our
home, Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Carmel-By-The-Sea I 4
STATEMENT OF CANDIDATE FOR
MEMBER OF CITY COUNCIL
City of Carmel-by-the-Sea
LUCAS MICHAEL AUSTIN
I am the newest resident of this city that is running for
office, but no less passionate for it. After our time in the
military my wife and I decided, Carmel-by-the-Sea was
the place we could call home. I am running for council
without ulterior agenda or motivations. Often city officials
feel inaccessible, and residents go unheard. I have no
outside influences casting my vote for me, and am willing
to listen to any reasonable request or argument at any
time. Whether you be a resident, business owner, or
employee working in the city, we must work together to
grow with the times.
I promise to bring a fresh and honest perspective to the
council. I will work hard to find solutions to the tough
problems like pensions and the drug culture among
teenagers. I hope to help resolve long standing problems
such as parking and handicap access which should have
been put to bed long ago. Patience is a virtue, but action
is eventually required.
As a businessman, I have a vested interest in making
sure Carmel-by-the-Sea grows as a community while
retaining its charm. If you feel the same I ask you cast
your vote for me.

MIEMBRO DEL CONCEJO MUNICIPAL
Ciudad de Carmel-by-the-Sea
LUCAS MICHAEL AUSTIN
Soy el residente mas nuevo de esta ciudad que se esta
postulando para el cargo, pero que igualmente tiene
pasi6n par Ia misma. Despues de pasar tiempo en el
servicio militar mi esposa y yo decidimos que Carmel-
by-the-Sea era el Iugar para establecernos. Estoy
presentando candidatura para el concejo sin motivos
ocultos. Con frecuencia los funcionarios no estan
accesibles, y no se les escucha a los residentes. Yo
no tengo influencias de fuera que emitan voto par
mf, y estoy dispuesto a escuchar cualquier petici6n o
argumento razonable que tengan en todo momenta. Ya
sea usted residente, propietario de negocio, o empleado
que trabaje en Ia ciudad, debemos trabajar juntos para
avanzar con los tiempos.
Prometo aportar una nueva perspectiva franca al concejo.
Trabajare arduamente para encontrar soluciones a los
problemas diffciles como las pensiones y Ia cultura de
droga entre los adolescentes. Espero resolver problemas
de antano como son el estacionamiento y el acceso a
personas discapacitadas, los cuales deberfan haber sido
resueltos desde hace mucho tiempo. La paciencia es
una virtud, pero al final se tiene que tamar acci6n.
Como hombre de negocios, yo tengo gran interes en
asegurarme de que Carmel-by-the-Sea crezca como
comunidad, pero que retenga su encanto. Si ustedes
creen lo mismo, les pido que emitan su voto par mi.

Age: 56
Occupation: Businesswoman/Councilmember
I have been coming to Carmel since I was a teenager,
working summers with my grandmother at the Hofsas
House. I grew to appreciate the inherent beauty and
charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea, and in 2000, my husband
and I moved here to operate the family hotel and raise our
son in Carmel public schools.
My advanced degrees in biology help me understand
and care for the natural beauty we have in our village.
Additionally, my experience in the private sector, in stat e
government, and now as a small business owner help me
understand how government operates and how it can be
improved to better our community.
Since my time on the City Council, we have enhanced
fiscal stability, refinanced CALPERS side-fund saving $4
million, added $1.3 million to reserves, and implemented
the HID (Hospitality Improvement District) for attracting
small conferences and expanding marketing efforts.
As your representative, my goal is to maintain a healthy
relationship among the City, its residents, and its
businesses. I hope to continue the cooperati ve spirit
of the council , enhance government transparency/
efficiency, and focus on beach and forest issues.
I would be honored to continue serving you on the City
Council. I respectively ask for your vote.
