Mayor Heidi Harmon came to the central coast 30 years ago as a college student, and like many, she found the charm and community irresistible. She stayed to make a life and raise her family in San Luis Obispo. After graduating from Cuesta and Cal Poly she worked as an early childhood educator in SLO for many years. The more she got to know the young people and families in our area, the more of her time and energy she gave to the community to make it even better for future generations.  She is an experienced community organizer, climate change activist, and public speaker. She has a track record of success impacting positive change through coalition building, policy advocacy, and public education. In November 2016 she was elected as Mayor of San Luis Obispo. Heidi is committed to creating innovative housing solutions, revitalizing the unique culture of our downtown, and enhancing community resilience through energy efficiency and sustainability. Currently, public health, Covid-19 recovery, and racial justice are top of mind. She keeps the voice and concern of local citizens at the forefront of everything she does, and believes each person and perspective deserves the right to be heard.
