Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Longtime resident and seasoned political activist Sandra Marshall-Eminger brings experience, honesty, and years of successful bridge building to the race for Mayor of San Luis Obispo, but media attention is hard to get when you don’t stir up controversy.
Marshall has 45 years of political involvement and business experience and has given countless hours of volunteer time back into the community. Her lifestyle is not focused on personal attention, but on the causes she champions.
A few of her accomplishments include:
  • Founder and publisher Information Press, a free progressive paper from 1991 to 2017. At Information Press, equal space was given to all candidates.
  • From 1993 to 2000, Marshall hosted Information Press Hour, a weekly radio show on KGLW 1340AM where she discussed local, trending topics and provided astrology for the week ahead.  
  • Marshall has served as the Director of Earth Day Alliance, a local non-profit organization whose purpose is to coordinate an annual Earth Day Fair, since 1999. The goal of Earth Day Alliance is to educate, motivate and activate the public to protect the environment for future generations. Almost single-handedly, Marshall has coordinated each free annual event. 
  • From 2003 to 2011 Marshall served on the San Luis Obispo County Democratic Central Committee. Her experiences expanded into supporting David Kucinich for President in 2004. In September 2007, she brought Kucinich to San Luis Obispo. Then, as now, Sandra supported Progressive ideals and was especially enthusiastic about Kucinich’s Healthcare for All plan
  • Sandra has the backing of Save Our Downtown, a group of long-time residents working to preserve the city’s historic buildings and charm.
Marshall is prepared and ready to serve as your Mayor. She is committed to protecting and preserving our 7,000 acres of open spaces and Downtown SLO, finding solutions that will serve the unsheltered with dignity and holding city officials accountable for their actions. She will always advocate for citizens to express their First Amendment rights in safe and productive ways.

Vote for Sandra Marshall-Eminger this November 3rd.


A Better Tomorrow Starts Today

As Mayor my goal is to restore trust in our city leadership, ensure opinions will be heard and serve  residents and businesses equally. My intention is to unite the community, restore economic opportunity, improve public safety, and make people the priority over politics.

The good of the whole begins with the individual.

My Brief but Spectaclar Life

I moved to San Luis Obispo in 1974. Between 1975 and 1988 I held administrative staff positions at the County of San Luis Obispo, Coastal Computers, and Cal Poly. When I remarried in 1988 our family moved to Santa Barbara where my husband
work as an aeronautical engineer.

Frustrated with the lack of fair and balanced media coverage, in 1991 I began publishing Information Press, a free monthly, progressive paper. Complimenting the paper, from 1993 to 1998, I hosted the Information Press Hour radio show. Due to rising operating cost I closed Information Press in 2017.

My political activism began in 1976 with Prop 15 - the safe nuclear power initiative. I was unwilling to support an energy source that left radioactive waste for future generations to deal with. In 1977 I was a co-founder of the Abalone Alliance, the coordinators of marches and rallies to Stop the Diablo Nuclear Power Plant. At the same time I began working on political campaigns.
In 1976 I arranged a visit by Governor Brown. At the came time I was part of the Abalone Alliance, we arranged for rallies on the Port San Luis Beach to Protest Diablo.  I was arrested in 1978 and served my time.I oine the Mothers or Peace an continue to support their work.
Politics:I was a volunteer for the Kucinch 2003-04 Presidential campaign. In June 2007 I coordinated the first Progressive Democrats of America Conference at the Embassy Suites.  I was a member of the Dennis Kucinich for President staff in 2007-08.  From 2003 to 2010 I served on the SLO County Democratic Central Committee..

Passionate about the environment from 1993 to 1998 I hosted Spring Fest, It took place in the mission Plaza and was a celebration of nature. In 1999 this morphed into Earth Day. For the past twenty years I have served as the Director of the Earth Day Alliance and coordinated an annual Earth Day Fair for SLO County.residents and visitors.
I will be coordinating the next Earth Day Fair once we are able to have public events again.
