Mike Belluomini is running for the Merced City Council. Mike has years of distinguished and successful experience in collaborating with city, state and federal agencies. I can attest to his accomplishments as I worked with him for over 15 years. His expertise was first recognized by Merced Union High School Districts past superintendent, Bill Tilley. He recruited and charged Mike with the implementation of the detailed actions required to build and maintain our high schools.
These were leadership tasks that included fostering coalitions, planning, lobbying, negotiating land purchases, proposing zone changes, bond selling, preparing bids and even acquiring street lights. The results were wonderful schoolwide communities. But by no means are these technical skills his only leadership qualities. I found him to be the most honest person I have ever met! He listens, he cares and he connects with you.
Mikes experience and personal attributes make my vote a simple task.
