Steve Napolitano for Manhattan Beach City Council


Hi, my name is Steve Napolitano and I’ve lived in Manhattan Beach all my life. I’ve served our community for more than 25 years as a former three-term Councilmember from 1992-2005 and as Senior Deputy to Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe from 2005-2016.

I’m running again because now more than ever we need our City Council to put our residents first, be fiscally responsible and protect our small town atmosphere and low profile development.

While on Council, I initiated our tree ordinance and campaign finance reform, reduced bulk & density in neighborhoods, created new parks, built our public safety facility and Metlox Plaza, and earned our AAA bond rating.

At the County, I helped build our new library, improved public safety, protected our environment, expanded arts education and created jobs and improved communities.

But I’m not just running on a record, I’m not about business as usual, here’s what I’ll do:

  • Protect our small town atmosphere and low profile development

  • Keep Manhattan Beach safe by hiring more police

  • Provide independent, common sense leadership

  • Keep city hall transparent and accountable

  • Support our schools, community groups and nonprofits

Twenty-five years ago I promised to listen to the residents and fight to keep Manhattan Beach the special place that it is. That’s what I’ve done, that’s what I’ll do. Please join our campaign today!
