Jonathan Sorenson, a 27-year-old business manager at San Marcos Rehabilitation and Healthcare, held an open forum at Wake The Dead Coffeehouse to discuss citizens’ concerns and campaign for the role of mayor.
Mayoral candidate Sorenson has built his platform around common sense and the idea of rebuilding trust in the community, he said.
“There has been a disconnect between the elected officials and the citizens,” Sorenson said. “The citizens want someone who will actually lead.”
Sorenson believes the current mayor is not listening to citizens and may be developing into a “career politician.”
“We have to rebuild trust,” Sorenson said. “If you don’t have the trust of the community, you can’t do it.”
