City of Coronado Highlighted as Part of
Strong Cities | Strong State Campaign
Sacramento - Today the city of Coronado was profiled as part of the ongoing “Strong Cities | Strong State” campaign highlighting local government success stories across California. “Strong Cities | Strong State” is a project of the League of California Cities and the California City Management Foundation (CCMF).
“Coronado is proud and excited to participate in the thoughtful ‘Strong Cities | Strong State’ campaign,” Coronado Mayor Casey Tanaka said. “We are a small city with many blessings including a rich history, a nationally recognized beach, a big beautiful bay, terrific city services, and some of the finest public schools to be found in the state. We have carefully worked to develop a city that balances the quality of life for our residents, businesses and visitors. From our quaint tree-lined streets and Victorian homes to our vibrant commercial district, Coronado has a lifestyle geared to please anyone.”

The “Strong Cities | Strong State” website is the centerpiece of a campaign broadly promoting city success stories alongside profiles of the elected officials and city managers working together to build and maintain a high quality of life for California city residents.
Highlights of the city of Coronado’s profile include:
“The ‘Strong Cities | Strong State’ campaign shows the public the values of professional municipal management,” said Coronado City Manager Blair King. “Good cities become great cities with stable financial management, quality employees and well-maintained facilities. It is government’s role and Coronado’s goal to provide the best of all three to its residents and businesses.”
The overarching goal of the “Strong Cities” campaign is to promote the innovation and experience of local officials in delivering vital services at a time when this expertise is vitally needed by state leaders struggling with fundamental issues of governance. “Strong Cities | Strong State” seeks to position cities as vital, necessary and equal partners in building a better California.
The Strong Cities | Strong State campaign will continue profiling individual cities each day, with a goal of highlighting all California cities over the coming year-and-a-half. Profiles include photos, video and other media articulating how each individual city has been working to both provide essential services, as well as elevate the quality life of its residents. Success stories will range from public safety initiatives to educational partnerships, infrastructure improvements to community engagement strategies and more.
