AMBER AT A GLANCE
As the most vocal advocate for Safe Access in Oceanside, I spent months speaking at city council meetings working to educate our council members and the residents of our great city about the medical and financial benefits of allowing cannabis commerce in Oceanside, effectively moving the city to create its first Medical Marijuana Ad Hoc Committee and ultimately creating what cannabis regulations we have today. These regulations have also provided a new cash crop for our local struggling multi-generational farmers that will help them in this time of competitive imports and rising costs of labor and water rates.
Along with my husband David Newman, I sit on the board of the Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation working with amazing individuals whom put in countless hours of work to bring Oceanside such events as The Oceanside International Film Festival, Oceanside Fall Festival, Oceanside Music Fest and Art Walls O’side. OCAF is dedicated to bringing arts and culture to our city’s youth sponsoring many events and scholarships for Oceanside students.
