Dennis Ridz

I’m Dennis Ridz and I am running for City Council.

I will protect your neighborhoods from over-development. I will fight for your fair share of funding for libraries, parks, roads, fire and police. I will balance the budget and protect taxpayer money.

My skills in management for Johnson and Johnson - including accounting, finance, and system operations - will be put to work for you and the communities I love.


I have the experience to represent you as your City Councilman:

  • Appointed a Commissioner by County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price to the Redistricting Census Committee
  • Appointed by SANDAG Board of Directors to serve as the North Coastal Community representative to the SANDAG 2050 Regional Transportation Plan
  • Elected twice to the Torrey Pines Community Planning Board
  • As Chairman of the Planning Board, developed response to Draft Environmental Impact Reports issued by Caltrans – I-5 North Coast Corridor, SANDAG 2050 RTP, and Del Mar Fairground’s Master Plan

Demonstrated leadership:

  • Issued Board response to the Del Mar Union School District, opposing closure of the Del Mar Hills Academy
  • Worked with Carmel Valley Community Board, supporting Proposition C, providing for Pacific Highlands Ranch future expansion
  • Worked on and supported Senator Kehoe's Bill 468, which enacted legislation limiting the scope of Caltrans impactful I-5 NCC project
