Joan Solu is tops for Morro Bay 

Morro Bay Oyster Company

I have operated and owned Morro Bay Oyster Company for eight years. Within the last two years, I have been fortunate to connect with the Morro Bay Tourism Business Improvement District Board (TBID) and its chair, Joan Solu. She has led TBID for three years, and through her volunteer efforts, she has helped me tremendously along the way. I have known her to be sincere, honest, open, and deeply committed to the community of Morro Bay. This can be directly seen by the countless hours she has dedicated to helping businesses like mine.

Joan Solu had a significant role in creating the collaboration that made Sunset’s Savor the Central Coast a reality, and a huge success for Morro Bay. Representing the tourism board and the city, Joan spent hours meeting with representatives from Sunset Magazine to develop ideas and cultivate promotions that would showcase Morro Bay, its citizens, and many of its businesses, such as my company. These direct efforts resulted in major exposure for Morro Bay in connection with the event itself, as well as subsequent coverage, including a four-page feature article on Morro Bay Oyster Company, as well as related stories that highlighted Miss Lola’s South Side Grill and Tognazzini’s Dockside II.

Currently, Joan Solu and the tourism board are working to ensure the successful launch of the Central Coast Oyster Festival in Morro Bay on June 16, which will benefit the nonprofit organization, OPTIONS Family of Services. We are extremely lucky to have her help and support for this event.

Because of her actions and for these reasons, and more, I support and endorse Joan Solu for City Council.
