"I’m wholeheartedly supporting the re-election of Heidi Harmon as Mayor of San Luis Obispo because Heidi has everything we need in a great leader: She’s shown she’s flexible and balanced in her views, listens compassionately to everyone, doesn’t waver from her core values, and yet seeks a solution that’s best for all our residents. Heidi has been a fierce advocate for local small businesses because she realizes that small businesses, jobs and affordable workforce housing are critical components of our quality of life.”

"Heidi has demonstrated an inclusive approach to local government by seeking understanding from all parts of the community while leading on important issues such as housing and social justice."

Jeff Buckingham

"Mayor Harmon has been an effective and devoted leader, during these most challenging of times. She’s championed an effective and thoughtful response to the coronavirus while managing and leading in issues ranging from the homeless crisis to climate change to affordable housing. As a resident and business person in the City if SLO, I’m sure glad Heidi’s at the helm."

Kara Woodruff
Vice President/Financial Planner

"As a small business owner and strong proponent of the business community, I've worked alongside Heidi on a diverse and strong economic development plan. As a fellow activist, I've walked alongside Heidi to advocate for social justice & human rights issues. As an under 40 community member, I've shown up in support of Heidi's progressive and bold climate action policies and housing initiatives. Heidi's vision coupled with her experience and willingness to operate regionally with other leadership, has created a San Luis Obispo that is evolving into a thriving cultural and economic hub."

Kelly Donohue

"Heidi's superpower is listening, acknowledging and serving her community. I trust she'll do anything and everything she can to make San Luis Obispo the best city it can be."

Jesse Bilsten
UX Designer

"Mayor Harmon has been a voice of compassion and kindness in the midst of difficult times. Her priorities are the people of San Luis Obispo, and she has worked tirelessly for the less fortunate and downtrodden. Thank you, Mayor Harmon!"

Clint Slaughter

"As we come out of COVID 19, and continue to address the social issues which impact our town, Heidi is clearly the leader we need. Heidi Harmon builds partnerships, seeks community solutions, and matches intelligence with heart. San Luis Obispo needs more of that."

Frank Warren
Longtime Resident/Health and Public Policy Manager

"Heidi is the right person for this job. Heidi's priorities are right on. She comes from a place of love and inclusion. Her heart is her defining characteristic."

Aydin Nazmi
Professor, Cal Poly State U.

"We need Heidi’s leadership and experience now more than ever. We need consistency to address the ongoing pandemic, we need someone who values bold steps for climate action, and we need someone who will continue to advocate for more housing so our workforce doesn’t have to commute 20-45 minutes each way every day."

Audrey Bigelow

“SLO City Council needs fresh, progressive ideas.”

– Rich Mortensen

“Heidi has championed climate action and campaign finance reform, two of the most pressing issues for our plane and our democracy.”

– Patricia Golden, Accountant

“Time to get new blood into the office, someone younger who has raised a family here, someone who takes advantage of our downtown culture, someone who recognizes the impact of student housing on our neighborhoods.”

– Karen Wren Mead

“Energetic, tireless fighter for children and the planet. She understands the issues and has the right priorities for SLO. Heidi will make a great Mayor!”

– Brian Haberly, Sierra Club

“Heidi has demonstrated through years of community service, her commitment to a safe and clean environment for all citizens of the Central Coast. She has demonstrated her skill at working across political lines for the good of the community.”

– Tim Webb, Educator

“Heidi built the Bernie Sanders movement from the ground up on the central coast, galvanizing a beautiful grassroots campaign and getting people like me more involved in the political process. She actively offers support to my intersectional feminist club at Cal Poly – strengthening a bond between the campus and the community, encouraging student activism and social justice, representing (often underrepresented) young people, serving as a strong female role model, and actively and intentionally uplifting marginalized voices. She makes herself accessible – I know her personally just through attending community events! She meets us, hears our stories, listens to our visions, and genuinely concerns herself with the wellbeing of this community. Regardless if you supported Bernie or not, Heidi wants the best for SLO and the best for all of us.

She wants to empower tenants and opposes that horrible Rental Housing Inspection Program that we all know and hate. She understands climate change as our most pressing issue as a planet, and wants to push more clean energy in SLO. She understands this city’s need for inclusive, affordable housing. She consistently asks the community members what they want to see out of SLO, and promises to be a true representative of the community’s wants and needs. I would be honored to call her my mayor!”

– Jennifer MacMartin, Student

“She has empathy and care for the people. She has an open ear and an open mind. She could be a brave and wise leader.”

– Henry Mattei, Student
