Local business owner and Long Beach native, Wesley Turnbow announced his campaign for Long Beach City Council representing the 8th District.
Turnbow is a husband of 22 years, father of six children, is the 4th generation in his family to call the 8th District home and has been active in his neighborhood association and local PTA for over 10 years.
“Having six kids, I know how important community involvement is in the safety and education of our children. Leadership starts in the neighborhoods and can spread throughout the city. I will bring my experience and commitment to the community to Long Beach City Council,” says Turnbow.
Turnbow earned a business and law degree from the University of Southern California, is a former CPA, owns a local aerospace company and is President of the Metal Finishing Association of Southern California.
“There is a need to bring about responsible solutions to the financial challenges facing our city and reverse the rising trend in violent crime. Applying my education, community knowledge and practical experience, I will be a strong voice on city council for making fiscally responsible decisions that improve public safety and strengthen our local economy,” Turnbow explains.
