Mayor Pro Tem Dave Pacheco



Dave Pacheco, a lifelong Seaside resident who put in 36 years as a city employee, was elected to his third term in 2020. Even before he was elected, Pacheco attended council meetings “not because I had too, but because I knew Seaside was my home, my family's home and investment in my community was necessary. My lifelong commitment to Seaside and our residents is a tool that has been an invaluable guide to our city’s future,” he said on his campaign website. Pacheco’s civic involvement includes serving on the Safety Committee and the Traffic Advisory Committee, among other positions.

First elected: November 2012

Alma mater: San Jose State University (bachelor’s degree, recreation and community)

Notable quote: “I believe we must find ways to create opportunities and ordinances to grow our viable housing availability and protect what resources we currently have. We must continue to grow our ADU programs and find sustainable and environmentally conscious ways to create new housing opportunities that are economically feasible.” (Source: Landwatch.org)
