City of San Diego Councilmember Todd Gloria
San Diego City Councilmember Todd Gloria was elected to represent District Three on November 4, 2008. As a third generation resident of District Three, his roots in the community are deep and his commitment to the community is strong.
Todd’s lifelong dedication to public service stems from the lesson of his parents that if you care about something, you should leave it better than you found it. Prior to his election, Todd served as District Director to U.S. Congresswoman Susan A. Davis and worked for the County of San Diego’s Health and Human Services Agency. Todd’s volunteer efforts to improve the community include his work as a San Diego Housing Commissioner from 2005 until his election, and as a member of the Mid-City Prostitution Impact Panel. As a Councilmember, Todd remains committed to community service and regularly volunteers with his staff on neighborhood projects.
Todd is the Chair of the Budget and Finance Committee. He is also a member of the Committee on Public Safety and Neighborhood Services, the Committee on Land Use and Housing, and the Committee on Rules, Open Government, and Intergovernmental Relations. Councilmember Gloria represents San Diego on the board of the Metropolitan Transit System, the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau, the San Diego Consortium Policy Board, and on numerous SANDAG committees.
His work has been recognized by numerous organizations, including Save Our Heritage Organization, the National Conflict Resolution Center (formerly the San Diego Mediation Center), the Greater San Diego Business Association, and the HIV Consumer Council. He was named a 2010 Hero of Assisted Housing by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials, a 1999 Harry S. Truman Scholar, one of San Diego’s “Top 40 Under Forty” by San Diego Metropolitan Magazine in 2005, and one of “50 People to Watch” by San Diego Magazine in 2008.
Todd is a graduate of the University of San Diego and an enrolled member of the Tlight-Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska. He lives in Hillcrest.
