More about our special guest….
Cori Schumacher is a Councilwoman from Carlsbad, a 3x women’s world longboard surfing champion, non-profit founder, international activist, and published author. Ms. Schumacher was asked to run for office by her community after a successful grassroots effort to stop a City Council endorsed mall development, adjacent to one of Carlsbad’s three lagoons, that would have bypassed environmental review.
Schumacher and her team were able to successfully transition the bi-partisan, grassroots effort into a positive campaign that ultimately unseated an incumbent. She continues to encourage local community leadership and meaningful community engagement through her newsletters, town hall meetings, and a drive to increase transparency and public trust in local government.
