Pacifica Tribune/Jane Northrop, 12/4/12. "Champion of environmental causes, Pete DeJarnatt, leaves City Council after 16 years."
He has a long history of supporting environmental concerns on City Council. He worked to preserve the headlands parcel on Pedro Point. He expanded Pacifica's hiking and biking trails and preserved the existing trails. He was in favor of turning Mori Point over to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and he is pleased with the results. It exceeded his expectations. "GGNRA has spent a ton of money and has done a great job turning that into a people-friendly and wildlife-friendly area," he said. He also worked to transfer Cattle Hill to the GGNRA.
.... He also worked on the growth control ordinance and the hillside preservation district.
"When you make a promise that you will do your best, you have to do it. This is a difficult job. It's difficult to deal with every person's individual problems. I thank the voters for their faith in me. It's been my honor to serve the community for the years that I have served," he said. Read article.
