Thank you for visiting my website. It is my sincere hope that by reading these pages you will learn a bit more about me, what has been achieved during my time as your City Councilmember, and how I am working hard to keep IB on track.

It has been an honor to serve as your Councilmember. My wife, Leah, and I love being a part of this amazing community.  I pledge to continue to do my best to keep the City of Imperial Beach moving in the right direction.

We have made great strides in Imperial Beach. We continue to attract new businesses that benefit residents and visitors alike. I will continue to insist upon a balanced and transparent budget, improvements to our streets, alleys, lighting and public safety services, and a carefully planned, moderate approach to development. 

I am interested in your opinion, your hopes, and your dreams for IB. If you contact me by email I will personally respond to your message.

Letter to Editor from Ed Spriggs, Imperial Beach Councilman           

I appreciate very much Dig-imperial-Beach creating an opportunity for IB City Council Members to communicate with IB residents and other readers. In this first article, I would like to introduce myself to community members who have not yet met me in person. I have been blessed with a very interesting life — a career that has taken me from San Diego to tough neighborhoods in the Bay Area, to New York and DC for school and work, then to developing countries in Africa, and after many years, back to my alma mater, UCSD, and fabulous Imperial Beach.

I hope that by describing my journey, IB residents will get a better sense of who I am as a person, and the life experiences and values that drive my vision for our beloved IB.  In future articles, I will offer my thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing IB, the role of the City Council, and the things Councilmembers do for the City other than attend Council meetings. I hope readers will enjoy these articles.

IB has been my home since August of 2001, so I have lived here long enough to know the community pretty well, but not so long as to be so wedded to the way things were that I cannot appreciate the possibilities of what we can be as a community in the future. I am honored to have been re-elected to a second four year term last November, by far and away the largest margin of votes among the successful candidates.
