Ben Daugherty filed his statement of intent to seek the 9th District Council seat in the upcoming April 2014 municipal election with the City Clerk’s office on October 24th, 2013.
Mr. Daugherty is a respected community leader having worked with various grass-roots groups throughout the years and is a recent recipient of the “Good Neighbor Award” in acknowledgement of his work as a dedicated public servant.
Ben has never run for office before but was compelled to do so after listening to various segments of the community who felt disenfranchised and believed he could provide the level of leadership, experience and integrity the district deserved.
Mr. Daugherty will apply his strong organizational and budgetary skills to make his district safer, cleaner, and more prosperous. He believes it is about people, not politics, and pledges to represent the residents and local businesses of the Ninth District as opposed to special interest groups.
He is now ready to further serve his community as a member of the Long Beach City Council.
