Protect Our Neighborhoods is very impressed with Tyler Boden for San Clemente’s two-year city council seat. After watching candidate forums and attending “meet and greets,” we found Tyler to be very informed on the issues facing San Clemente, well spoken, well-mannered, energetic, and possessing wisdom well beyond his 32 years of age.

Tyler grew up in San Clemente, and graduated from San Clemente High School. He has been student body president of San Diego State University; been a member of Mitt Romney’s Presidential campaign; is a member of San Clemente’s Rotary Club; is a member of San Clemente’s Human Affairs Committee; and is a member of San Clemente’s Homeless Committee.

In addition to his many voluntary services, Tyler owns and operates a small business in San Clemente: Boden Solar Energy Solutions. 

Tyler Boden knows San Clemente is special, and is running for San Clemente’s two-year city council seat, because he wants to protect the town he grew up in. Tyler is an advocate of San Clemente’s safe neighborhoods, where ours kids safely ride their bikes and our neighbors walk their dogs in the streets, free from vacation rentals and sober-living homes.

Protect Our Neighborhoods is extremely concerned about the candidates running for San Clemente City Council who boast that they are in favor of property owners’ rights. This is the same terminology we heard when our neighborhoods were being overrun by vacation rentals and sober-living homes.

San Clemente already has a councilmember who votes in favor of vacation rentals, while ignoring the pleas of San Clemente residents who must live with these businesses operating in their neighborhoods. Tyler promises to support San Clemente’s zoning ordinances that protect our single-family residential neighborhoods.

Tyler has been endorsed by former Mayor Dan Bane. He is walking our neighborhoods and introducing himself to our residents. I hope you are able to meet and speak with him. Tyler’s unique leadership style definitely makes him a candidate well worth your consideration for San Clemente’s two-year city council seat. 

Our city council needs positive collaborative members. Tyler Boden indisputably fills the bill.
