Santa Monica

is a local grassroots network led by the California Restaurant Association advocating for positive change at the local level. We are unifying local business owners, neighborhood groups, and other community leaders to create a new political force in Santa Monica.

Our Goals

Hospitality Santa Monica will promote smart policies out of City Hall that will:

Improve public safety
Clean up our streets
Lower the cost of doing business
Support a thriving hospitality environment


Small businesses and residents have yet to see solution-based policies come out of City Hall that address several issues plaguing the city.


A growing number of homeless encampments are in our neighborhoods and employees are often harassed on the job by troubled homeless individuals.


Crime is on the rise. Public safety in our restaurants, hotels, and neighborhoods is at risk.


Small and independent hospitality businesses face ever-increasing costs to operate and keep employees.
