Newport Beach, CA – Long time Newport Beach resident Roy Englebrecht announced today that he will seek the District 4 council seat currently held by Kevin Muldoon in the November 2018 election.
“It is pretty simple why I have decided to once again run for Newport Beach City Council in the 2018 election. If we don’t address the current unfunded liabilities and health benefits that is reaching nearly $400 million dollars; and if we don’t seriously tackle current city pension and health benefits reforms, the City of Newport Beach will be in serious financial trouble in the not so distance future. When the current city manager of Newport Beach Dave Kiff says in a newspaper interview that “the only thing that keeps me awake at night is the city’s unfunded liabilities,” you know we have a problem. Without a doubt this is really “the elephant in the room” and don’t let the current council or city staff tell you anything different! Someone must finally say, enough is enough! Someone must try to put a majority of four council members together to address pension reform in a meaningful way; and with the support of residents of Newport Beach I hope to be that person,” said Englebrecht.
He continued, “sure, the increased development in our community and the circumventing of our General Plan is a serious concern -increased city traffic is a concern; airport issues are a concern; election reform is a concern, and I will work tirelessly to address all these issues, but the first agenda item after the November 2018 election must be pension reform!”
Englebrecht ran for the District 4 seat in the 2014 election and in an unconventional campaign with no fund raising, no advertising, no mailers, and no campaign signs received 2,882 votes.
“As I said in 2014, I don’t complain, I compete. So I will aggressively compete in 2018 and unlike my 2014 campaign I am now asking the Newport Beach community to back my campaign with their contributions, prayers, and support, so that we can return our city council to the people of our community. If city residents believe in how I will address critical issues as a city council member they can go to www.joinroy.com and learn how they can help,” said Englebrecht.
