My name is Ken Loo. I’m a husband, father, firefighter, small business owner, and educator. I graduated from UC Davis (B.A.), CSU Long Beach (M.S.), and earned an Adult Education Teaching Credential from San Jose State. I currently serve on a Civilian Oversight Board of a Bay Area Police Agency where I have focused on transparency.
During my 20 years of experience in public safety as a Fire Captain, I have made life changing decisions on a daily basis. I have extensive experience working with public budgets and multi-agency coordination.
I am running for Belmont City Council because public safety is my number one priority. I want to improve traffic and pedestrian safety; address our housing issues and city permitting process; all the while keeping Belmont a family friendly city.
I will work to keep a robust and modern public safety model making sure we coordinate with all agencies involved.
As a City Council member, I will focus on evaluating the process to obtain city permits/licenses to streamline the process and manage growth by working with Sacramento legislators.
As an educator, I have taught courses for front line public health department personnel and understand their operational concerns. I instruct teachers in emergency procedures in K-12 schools, as well as those in public agencies, private sector, and non-profits.
I want to ensure the viability of our long-term development plans by updating them with the changing of the times while keeping the historic beauty in place.
With your vote, I will continue my efforts to enhance the quality of life for the residents of Belmont.
