He previously served on Seaside’s Environmental Committee and Monterey County’s Planning Commission and Housing Authority. And midway through his council term, Wizard ran an unsuccessful campaign for mayor.

Twitter bio: “Council Member in the @City_of_Seaside & Housing Elements Coordinator @Yimby_Law.  Likes, tweets, and RTs ≠ position of my city or my employer. BLM & GND.”

Notable quote: “Budgets are our value statements. Where we prioritize our spending is a reflection of what we think is important. So to have a status quo budget where we don't make any adjustments means that we think everything is fine just the way it is. And that's not how I feel.” (Source:
