I'm Grateful For this experience

Dear Voters of Long Beach District 3,

Thank you for the opportunity to run for public office.  Thank you for all the votes of confidence, emails, & messages. I truly am grateful for the opportunity to have met each and every one of you.  I will be posting an email soon that you can reach out to me on.  I do not want to leave public life completely and will continue to work in the Long Beach community.  Some people even wrote me in on their ballots for LB Mayor which was amazing.  Hopefully you will see me in another election soon. I look forward to serving you in the future.  

Best Always, Rob Savin

Two Challenge Suzie Price in Third District

Read the Grunion Gazette!! 

Savin said he also is concerned about homelessness, where the population is increasing. More transparency is needed in spending of Proposition H money, and in government spending in general. He added that his neighbors are opposed to the Sorrento Trail along Alamitos Bay mandated by the state Coastal Commission.

The Long Beach municipal election is on April 10. If one candidate gets a majority of the votes, they will be declared the winner. If no one gets a majority, the top two vote getters will face a runoff election on June 5.

Neighborhood density and Aquatics Center are key issues for 3rd district candidates

Robert Savin
Robert Savin, 48, works as a physics teacher at Schurr High School in Montebello and lives in the 3rd District with his wife and seven children. He has lived in his neighborhood for eight years, and this is the first time he’s run for public office.
Savin also expressed concerns about the Land Use Element, adding that while he could see buildings rising up in some areas of 3rd District, this growth may cause displacement.
“Friends of ours [who live downtown] have said ‘I got kicked out of my building because they built a big fancy building and they’re trying to say it’s affordable,”’ Savin said. “But $3,000 a month rent doesn’t sound affordable to me.”
If elected, Savin said his priorities would lie in public safety, addressing homelessness and local parks with a special focus in rebuilding the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool, which closed in 2013. The new complex is the Belmont Beach and Aquatics Center.
“I just see so many things changing in the city and it seems like we’re losing a lot of our history,” Savin said. “Residents have told me they want the [Belmont Plaza Pool] back… and it looked like it was going to be rebuilt and then nothing happened.”
Savin said he would like to look into the desalination of water in Long Beach and was of addressing high sales tax. Savin asserted that the high sales tax in Long Beach of 10.25 percent has made it difficult for small businesses to survive and he intends to find a solution to this if elected.
“With a high sales tax, we need to figure out some way to shop here in Long Beach,” Savin said.
Savin echoed Kajer’s frustrations with community outreach and the lack of accessibility to current council members.
“We need to get members who really want to represent their constituents,” Savin said. “Why [would] you even have a meeting if everything was already predetermined?”

The emails have been overflowing with support. 

Thank you to everyone who has sent messages.

Tradition

 

Out in the community this week, this realization hit me.  The people of Long Beach have one common theme.  Tradition. They enjoy Traditional things and they like keeping tradition alive.  Our city is filled with history.  People are tied to this history.  They remember the first time they swam at the Belmont pool.  They remember the first time they played golf at Recreation golf course.  And they remember the first time they heard the drums on a Friday night coming from Wilson high school. These same people also see changes.  They see restrooms at Little Recreation park that need repair.  They don't understand the new roundabout on Park Avenue.  In a week's time I have heard over and over and over again "Mr. Savin, you have to help the Homeless".  They say "It was never this bad, you have to do something". The community is talking.  It is not fiction.  This is what genuine Long Beach people are telling me.  It's time for a change.  Vote On April 10th.  Best, Rob Savin

Robert Talks about LUE in the 3rd District

Rob Savin has been listening to his possible future constituents regarding the Land Use Element.  He is currently keeping records of the names and comments of all individuals who have an opinion on the issue. Many have voiced an opinion of a NO vote on LUE or the Land Use Element.  If he is a representation of the 55,000 people in his district, his vote would also be a NO on Land USE.  Please email Mr. Savin at Rob@savinlongbeach.com if you would like to join the people who want to have a voice on this issue.

Robert Savin hits the street to talk about homelessness

This past weekend, Robert Savin hit the streets of the 3rd district to discuss being homeless in Long Beach.  Robert visited several areas.  His approach was simple, get out there, talk to people who are homeless and talk to the community about its concerns.  His approach is that we have to do something, because the current situation of doing nothing is not working.  He has looked for direction from the late Jack Smith who was making headway in Oct. of 2016, when he spoke to the city council.  Smith passed in December of 2016. Mr. Savin would like to continue the work of Mr. Smith.
