MY STORY

Welcome to my website! I'm Rhonda Bolton, a proud member of the Huntington Beach City Council and candidate for election to a second term. My goal is to make our city an even better place for all residents. I'm passionate about community engagement and believe that collaboration and common sense are key to having an effective local government that is truly responsive to our residents’ needs.

 

As a dedicated public servant, I bring a wealth of experience and expertise to my role on the City Council. I began my career as a Congressional policy adviser in Washington, D.C. and then became a government relations attorney at a large law firm.  In those roles, I worked on federal legislation in areas including health care and financial services, and I am most proud of my work on transformative laws such the Affordable Care Act, and the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

 

I believe in listening to the concerns of our diverse population – the Real HB – and not simply catering to the views of a few. In my time on the City Council, we've implemented innovative approaches to address issues of importance to our residents, like assisting the homeless, expanding mental health services, safe streets, smart growth, and fiscal responsibility. I consider, and support, policy proposals based on their substance, not their author’s political party affiliation.

 

Beyond my role as a councilmember, I actively participate in community events and work closely with local organizations to support initiatives that promote economic growth, self-reliance, a welcoming environment, and civic pride.

 

On this website, you'll find updates on my work, upcoming events, and opportunities for you to get involved. I invite you to explore and learn more about my vision for a vibrant and sustainable Huntington Beach.

 

Thank you for visiting, and let's work together to build the bright future our city deserves!

Rhonda Bolton, Huntington Beach City Council
