Kevin McKeown

Santa  Monica  former  Mayor




Thank you, Santa Monica.  In November of 2018, you elected me to my sixth term on our City Council.  As always, my campaign took no corporate contributions nor developer donations.  Over 85% of my contributors were individual residents of our city (an unprecedented proportion), and I won in every single precinct citywide.

I was proud to serve yet again as your Councilmember! 
I represented you as Chair of the Westside Cities Council of Governments, on the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission, and as your Director on the Board of the Clean Power Alliance, providing 100% renewably sourced electricity to Santa Monica.  In 2020, for the second time, I enjoyed the privilege of being your Mayor, including presentation of Santa Monica’s 2020 State of the City.

For over twenty years, I had updated an ongoing website explaining my stand on issues and sharing
my enthusiasm for our hometown.  After all this time, websites have become less sought after as
a source of information, and the software package I’d used for creating and updating pages and adding relevant videos became outdated.  I know the site looks primitive.  Because the history of our progress together on Santa Monica issues remains worth memorializing, I’ve left my website and all the videos and other online references complete, here — but I shall no longer be updating it.

To summarize, here’s a partial list of what I accomplished while I was your Councilmember and Mayor.
