Your Voice | Your Vision | Your SLO
As Mayor, I’m supporting your vision for our city and bringing fresh ideas and perspectives to our local government. But I can't do it without YOU.
Our potential doesn't hinge on what we already know. It hinges on what we're willing to do, and that starts with showing up.
What People are Saying
"Heidi has been an outstanding leader on many community issues. She goes above and beyond to engage local residents in the conversation because she cares so much about this city and welcomes an inclusive conversation. While participating in one of her neighborhood walks, I was inspired how she listened to their concerns and then offered solutions on how to create the community they wanted to see."
"Heidi's compassion and determination really sets her apart, she is not only an inspiration, but a role model to a lot of people living here on the Central Coast. Her vision and dreams have become reality due to her persistence and tenacity. What I admire most about Heidi is her courage and bravery to stand up for what is right. She is a woman of impeccable character, her integrity and loyalty is exceptional. Heidi's approach to everyday life is first-class; she puts the needs of the people always first on her agenda, pure selflessness. Heidi has worked hard to ensure working families, and the middle class, have good paying jobs here locally to raise families, and to be able to live here on the beautiful Central Coast. As a friend and partner, on behalf of the Local Sheet Metal Workers Union 104, we support and honor Madam Mayor Heidi Harmon."

"Heidi isn't one to stray from a challenge and those that knew her were ready to do whatever they could to help her win. Heidi won the 2016 election by a small margin and immediately entered the City of San Luis Obispo with her community centric leadership. As a youth that has made efforts to contribute to my community, Heidi has offered nothing but support for my efforts and consistently inspires me to give more of myself. We're lucky to have her as a Mayor, I'm confident she will lead us with her heart and due diligence. I trust that she will continue to do great things in her fight for a better today and tomorrow."

4 Steps to Affordability
SLO has become unaffordable to young families and many of those who work in the city. In fact a recent study found SLO to be the 5th most unaffordable place in America. We’ve seen the results of this over the past decades, the homeownership rate in the city rate has been dropping, today we’re nearly as low as 30%. We’re loosing the character and stability of our city when almost 2 out of every 3 residents are living in rental units and our teachers, firefighters, construction workers, and retirees cannot afford to live here.
Over the years little has been done to correct this problem. Heidi Harmon has a 4-part plan to fix it.
