Mario Fonda-Bonardi, Architect

Our City needs a SLOW GROWTH Council Member that advocates for all residents, FIRST and foremost.

I’m the person who will:
  • STOP the 11-story Plaza Project.
  • Fight to restore our small town’s endangered BEACHSIDE charm.
  • Block developers and their Sacramento enablers from looting our City.
  • Advocate for effective and fair policing.
  • Resist developments exceeding our water, traffic, and energy capacities.
  • Prevent your money being spent on excessive city payroll and pensions.
  • Insist SM Residents provide only our FAIR SHARE of County homeless support.
  • Create real, permanent, AFFORDABLE HOUSING e.g. from empty retail and office spaces,

Build a Truly SUSTAINABLE and Resilient City.

I have been living in and practicing architecture in Santa Monica for over 40 years. My children attended SM Public Schools.

I’m experienced with a track record of getting things done:

  • SM Planning Commission (5 years)
  • SMart (7 years)
  • Board Member, Santa Monica Conservancy (10 years)
  • Coach, AYSO (17 years)
  • Member of AIA, Sierra Club, SMRR
  • Instrumental in landmarking: Shotgun House, Chez Jay, 11th Street Historical District

Help create a Santa Monica better and more inclusive than previously thought possible!
