What Matters



Making it easier for citizens and business owners to express their concerns by creating more opportunities for connecting face to face.



Going above and beyond in the city’s reporting obligations and being forthcoming in our weaknesses as a city so that we can more effectively problem solve.



Collaborating with state, county, non-profit organizations, and foundations to better utilize the expertise of our citizens and create opportunities for small businesses.



Recognizing and bringing together our diverse community in a way that enriches one another’s lives.


environmental stewardship

Creating a sustainable commission that engages our community to take an active role in caring for our natural resources and being a leader in sustainability.


A Shared Vision

Dionne's supporters believe in the power of an enriched community.  
They believe in holding on to the values that nourish a small town.  Where children know they are supported by their community and trust their input matter.  Where a community full of experts, business owners, and families have a voice.  And where new residents get acquainted with the city through seaside walks with the Mayor.

In a city driven by community, there is transparency in the city’s reporting and candidness over the city’s weaknesses.  Connected communities take a collective consideration for one another’s well-being and celebrate diversity.  We appreciate the significance of our historical and natural resources and take an active role in preserving them.  

An enriched community is Driven by YOU!  Let’s bridge the communities in our small town, including all of those those that live, work, and play here, and elevate Pacific Grove to be the best place it can be!

I have raised my children in for 20 years."
