Thank you!

Thank you to all who supported my campaign through contributions, yard signs, volunteering, or just spreading the word to friends and neighbors.
I am deeply moved by all the genuine good will and support that I received.

Sadly, according to the Registrar’s office fewer than 17,000 voters exercised their right to vote in the Chula Vista Mayoral race. With our population at about 250,000 it’s a very disappointing turn out.

I extend congratulations to Jerry Rindone and Mary Salas.

I look forward to the next two and half years on the Council before my present term ends. I am enthusiastic about the good projects that are coming to fruition as we emerge from years of severe belt tightening. My goal is to help insure that our Bayfront development and University and Innovation Center projects are realized. I will be working hard during my final term to make sure that happens.

In the meantime, come to HarborFest this summer on August 16 and enjoy all that our waterfront festival has to offer. Learn more at


Councilwoman Pamela Bensoussan

Pamela Bensoussan for Chula Vista Mayor in 2014

An Independent Voice

Since elected to Council in 2008, I worked to rein in spending and revitalize our economy. In 2009, determined to advance our goals of a thriving waterfront, I convinced Council to speak with one voice and one vision. Now, the South Bay Power Plant is demolished, the Bayfront Master Plan is approved, and work is underway to connect H Street directly to the Marina. The acquisition of 375 acres for a University and Innovation Center is targeted for completion by the end of the year. I have always voted for economic health and prosperity. When I vote, Chula Vista comes first. During challenging times we must be the most innovative and efficient, and rigorously guard our resources. I am ready to lead our City forward as your choice for Mayor in 2014.
