Steve Napolitano for MB City Council 2020

Running to Keep the 'Beach' in Manhattan Beach!


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 Councilmember and Deputy to County Supervisor Don Knabe.

Four years ago, I ran to get our city working again, get things done and provide independent, common sense leadership.

While on Council, I initiated $1 million to keep our kids safe at school, protected our neighborhoods from short-term rentals, improved pedestrian safety, eliminated costly city staff, and approved new bike routes and public art across the city.

I also initiated our first 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 welcoming, safe and secure for everyone

  • 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!
