o Mary Coakley Munk
, La Jolla Shores
INCUMBENT I worked closely with the community, City of San Diego, Scripps Institute of Oceanography and Birch Aquarium on design, construction and funding of the Kellogg Park Comfort Station, ”The Map” of the La Jolla Shores Underwater Park & Ecological Reserves, Kellogg Park Junior Lifeguard/Respect the Ocean-themed playground (including the sculpture of J.J. the Whale and Shade Structure) and Cliffridge Park Restroom renovation. I’m currently working on Fish ID Panels and replacement of the Kellogg Park North Comfort Station. I founded Friends of La Jolla Shores 501(c)(3). I am fortunate to call the Shores “home” and would like the opportunity to represent you, your views and concerns.
o Dolores Donovan
, Calle del Oro
[INCUMBENT] I am a long-time resident of the La Jolla Shores and a part-time professor of law at the University of San Francisco (USF). I telecommute to USF from La Jolla. I am the Secretary of the La Jolla Shores Association and am seeking re-election to my second term. I also serve on the La Jolla Shores Permit Review Committee. I have two children, the youngest is in the 12th grade at La Jolla High School. I have been involved in professional and community groups throughout my life. I seek to preserve the coastal character of the Shores without sacrificing the economic viability of its business community.

[INCUMBENT] I came to La Jolla Shores in September when I opened Voulez Vous Bistro and Bakery under the mentorship of my father, Michel Malécot, owner of The French Gourmet. I was born and raised in San Diego, and graduated from La Jolla Country Day School in 2008. I went on to the University of San Diego with a focus on Business Administration and Philosophy. I am a member of Our Mother of Confidence Catholic Parish, where I am honored to serve as a Knight of Columbus with my father. I am excited to be part of the La Jolla community and look forward to continuing to serve on the LJSA board.
