Scott Deschenes
Scott Deschenes is a 20 year member of our law enforcement community. Scott, his wife, and their four children moved to the Point Loma Area in 2010. His children attend Point Loma public schools. Scott is the Vice President External for the PLHS Pointer Association. He is also the President of a charity benefiting his fellow officers and non-uniformed employees. Scott is very eager to help this community which he loves. He feels he brings a fresh outlook to the PCPB by not having a career or contacts in the development community giving him an unclouded view of future land development proposals.

In posts with EHDD in San Francisco, Karlsberger Companies in New York, and RJC | Steinberg Hart in San Diego, I have served as project designer, project manager, project architect, and as a leader in sustainability standards and practices for a wide range and scale of projects. My public works projects include the national award-winning Human Resources Service Center at MCAS Miramar, County of San Diego Registrar of Voters building, and design of the Naval Base Coronado Coastal Campus for the Navy SEALS. - Robert Goldyn

Jim Hare
I’ve devoted a 35 year professional career to city planning, I’ve been a Point Loma resident for 28 years, and I’ve committed much of my retirement to volunteering. It has been fun to use my skillset to help the PCPB craft new community plan policies, creating solutions, not just input. I’d love to keep doing it. - Jim Hare

Robert Tripp Jackson
Second generation PL Guy, I had the opportunity to grow up around community service. My mother, Ann Tripp Jackson, was Chair of the PCPB when she passed away and previous Chair of PLA. Saving Dana Middle School , from private development, was her last fight. At the age of 19, I followed serving on the PCPB. PLA Board in 1995 and Chair from 2013-2016. In addition , the Peninsula YMCA Board, PL Rotary, SDPD Advisory Board and San Diego Hospice.
My goal is to listen to the community and find common ground with the issues we face. Utilize the long term relationships with our fellow Community Groups and City Representatives. I'll be sure our community will be heard and progress made. .

My interests include smart growth, sustainable practices, pedestrian/bicycle access, housing and open space. I was educated at Iowa State University and maintain an active architect registration in the State of California. I am currently serving on the Project Review subcommittee. - Mark Krencik

Sarah Moga Alemany
My name is Sarah Alemany, and I live in Sunset Cliffs with my husband and two sons (two and nine months). As a mother of young children in this area, my priority is to keep Point Loma safe and accessible for all residents. If I'm elected to the board, I'd like to help with traffic issues to make sure the roads are safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. I would also like to join the Liberty Station sub-committee to be sure it continues to serve the PL community and is full of local, family-friendly businesses. Finally, as a resident of Sunset Cliffs, I want to work with the Sunset Cliffs Natural Park Council to help protect the cliffs and keep them clean. - Sarah Alemany

Mick Moore
Hello, I’m Mick Moore and my family has lived in San Diego for almost 150 years. I’m a third generation Point Loman. We have been strong advocates of preserving San Diego’s unique way of life and keeping nature such as Balboa Park away from builders and speculators as far back as the late 1800’s. I’m an award-winning web designer, acclaimed internet marketing consultant, author, film maker, and key-note speaker. I am the CEO of KillerGraffix, a prominent design and marketing firm based in San Diego, California, and I designed and built West Side Tap House, a craft beer restaurant, now the Fish Shop located on Rosecrans and Canon, as well as Pacifica Sailing Charters, a yacht charter business here in Point Loma. I’m a staff Commodore at Point Loma Yacht Club and member in good standing at Silver Gate Yacht Club. My reasons for joining the Planning Board is to hold not only the board accountable, but the city for our future growth and neighborhood issues and complaints.

Geoff Page
I’ve lived on the Peninsula since 1980. I love this area and I believe we need to be diligent in protecting it. While it is good to work with the city, we also know that the city does not always have our best interests in mind, it needs to be watched. That has been my mission from the start. I believe there is a trend on the board to be protective of the city and I believe the board needs an alternate, critical voice. I also believe the main value of the board is that it provides the community a chance to speak and be heard. To that end, some changes are needed to encourage participation. - Geoff Page

John Plaza
My platform is simple, community safety and involvement. This ranges from the inability to walk our dogs safely without playing “frogger” to avoid being hit by reckless drivers, to the homeless population whether its dumpster diving or property damage, to the littering of our community streets with lime and lemon bikes. I served 20 years in the US Navy making our world a better place, by fighting injustices abroad and at home, by making it a safer place to raise our children. My ability to work at the community level to do the same thing to protect and serve each of us is dependent on you.
Your vote really can really make a difference. I hope you will join me in your vote to make a difference. - John Plaza

Julia Quinn
Point Loma resident since 1980. Bachelor of Science from University of California, Berkeley
Over 30 years experience as an environmental planning professional
