"Highlights of City of Del Mar" by Mayor Dave Druker
 
 
Dave Druker has been on the Del Mar City Council from 1996 through 2008 and 2016 to present. He has been Mayor four times. Dave has lived in Del Mar since 1986. His wife Kristen is a retired History teacher at The Bishop's School and Culver City High School. They have two adult children and one grandson. Both Dave and Kristen graduated from USC. Dave has a BA in Match and an MS in Counseling. Dave works at DataSkill, a software development company that uses artificial intelligence to facilitate international trade finance.
 
He said Del Mar's boundary is from Jimmy Durante Blvd. to Crest Canyon and that Del Mar has 4000 residents. He has been Mayor 4 times, no staff and he spends about 40 hours each month. Del Mar split off from San Diego county about 60 years ago - primarily to avoid giving development rights to San Diego county. The city's budget is $10M per year and $8M of that is from property taxes. The city gets about 13% of that property tax. City has no ability to control anything at the Fair since state owns the property.
 
The major issues that the city has been facing are; 1) short-term rentals and 2) sea-level rise leading to bluff erosions. The tracks are not actually impacting the bluff since the train vibrations dissipate horizontally.
 
Street Scape is the new project to allow sidewalk cafes. This should be ready by end of July 2019. He has lived in Del Mar for 32 years, married for 48 years and works at Dataskill.
 
 
In the end DMSB Club interim President Venky Venkatesh presented the speaker with the Joshua certificate that represents our club DMSB donating school supplies to schools in Malawi in the name of the speaker.
