Councilmember Ed Spriggs at Imperial Beach City Council

Ed continues to provide strong leadership to make sure IB’s classic, Southern California small beach town charm is preserved while improvements are made that enhance quality of life for all residents.

As a Councilmember, Ed has led or voted for many community improvements including:

  • • the paving of our streets and alleys;
  • • the return of our 4th of July fireworks and our famous Sun & Sea (Sandcastle) Festival;
  • • maintaining a balanced and transparent City budget;
  • • protecting our Sports Park for the benefit of IB youth teams and all residents;
  • • restarting the Tidelands Advisory Committee to better protect our environment;
  • • establishing a Parks and Youth Commission;
  • • unraveling the legal and financial problems that delayed the 9th and Palm Breakwater project;
  • • co-establishing the Seacoasters group of business owners and private citizens to make improvements that benefit residents and visitors alike;
  • • challenging the City’s finance directors and consultants to provide accurate and detailed information in a form that the City Council and general public can understand;
  • • ensuring that the City retains a well–staffed Sheriff’s unit even though it costs more to do so, while also ensuring that IB has well-staffed and well-trained fire protection and lifeguard services;
  • • continuing to oppose and prevent the introduction of short-term rentals into our residential communities;
  • • preventing the introduction of multiple medical marijuana dispensaries in IB’s neighborhoods and commercial areas.
