Mayor Bruce Carlos Delgado


(831) 277-7690


First elected in 2008, mayoral veteran Bruce Carlos Delgado describes his position somewhat poetically on LinkedIn: “All matters big and small from ensuring fiscal responsibility of annual budgets and future visionary projects to removing graffiti and picking up litter. Rarely alone, thriving on partnerships!”

Originally from Glendora, Calif., Delgado has lived in Marina since 1996 and has worked as a botanist for the Bureau of Land Management since 1988, doing habitat restoration and protection at Fort Ord National Monument. Delgado graduated in 1990 from Humboldt State University with a bachelor’s degree in wildlife management.

Back in 2000, when he was on the City Council, Delgado supported the effort to establish Marina’s urban growth boundary (which was reaffirmed by the voters in the 2020 election). But Delgado also sees the value of economic development. “Downtown redevelopment is a prime opportunity,” he explained in 2012 at SmartVoter.org. “We should be encouraging youthful energetic businesses such as coffeehouses, bike, computer, and bookstores, unique grocery stores, cafés, etc. with professional offices and nighttime entertainment for young and old. We can be a much better downtown family and university town.”

Uncontested, Delgado was reelected in November 2022 for another term.
