Ed is not a politician. He is running for Solana Beach City Council because the current council is stagnant, adheres to special interests, and puts politics above people. Siegel is self-funding his campaign. Some of Ed’s goals for Solana Beach are to build a stronger sense of community, create a business friendly climate, and ensure people are treated like members of a community.
