Brian Pepin’s first endorsement was the Deputy Sheriffs Association for a reason: he’s a leader when it comes to public safety. Pepin is proud to come from a law enforcement family. His grandfather served 30 years as an officer with the San Diego Police Department, and his father-in-law is a retired Sheriff’s Captain.
Brian’s family knows firsthand the danger facing local law enforcement and the dedication it takes to serve in uniform. Poway is ranked the safest city in San Diego County and one of the safest in the state of California. With Brian on the city council, Poway will keep public safety a top priority. Poway has repeatedly found itself under threat from wildfires in recent years. Brian believes fire protection is a top responsibility of the city. He will fully fund our fire department and invest in the resources our firefighters need to protect our neighborhoods against the threat of fire.
Brian Pepin supports police and fire. They keep our communities safe and will always be his top priority.
Brian Pepin is a small business owner and believes in the power of the free market to provide jobs, opportunity, and the resources our community needs to thrive. Brian is on the Board of Directors of the Poway Chamber of Commerce and has served as President of the Lincoln Club of San Diego County, a community organization aimed at encouraging local businesses to advocate for less government interference and less red tape. Brian will always fight for an economy that allows San Diego families and businesses to thrive.
California taxpayers face some of the highest taxes in the nation. Worse, these tax dollars are regularly wasted and misused by government bureaucracies. Brian has spent years advocating for efficiencies, cost-savings, and a free-market approach to government, most recently as Chairman of the Poway Budget Review Committee. On the city council, Brian will never vote for a tax increase and he’ll always fight to make sure Poway families keep more of their hard-earned money.
One of the most important things the city does is build and maintain infrastructure: roads, parks, playgrounds, libraries, community centers, and other public facilities. Brian will continue to make these items a priority and will never let them fall into disrepair like other areas of San Diego. Fully funding road repair work and other maintenance is a basic responsibility that Brian will never allow to lapse.
Brian will always support parents' rights to choose the best way to raise and educate their children. He believes the city should encourage a community where Poway schools are world-class, administrators are responsive to families, and parents get the final say on how to educate their children.
