Richard Bloom appointed as new Coastal Commissioner

Santa Monica City Councilman Richard Bloom was appointed as California's newest Coastal Commissioner today by the Senate Rules Committee and President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. Bloom will be the South Coast area representative on the Commission, filling one of the six "electeds" seats on the Commission, as one of the twelve voting members.

When interviewing with Surfrider Foundation and other environmental groups for this position, Bloom affirmed his priority for protecting the environment above all other factors and especially public parks, which he regards as our legacy to the future. This won him the recommendation of the environmental groups, along with Gerrie Shipske from Long Beach and Pam O'Connor from Santa Monica.

Bloom is an attorney by profession and also chairs the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission. For more information on Bloom's appointment, click here.
