Former DM mayor honored by county

Former Del Mar Mayor Tom Pearson was recently honored for his active role in shaping the city’s future development and his work to maintain a high quality of life.

On Feb. 24, Vice Chairwoman Pam Slater-Price recognized Pearson during the regular meeting of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

Pearson served for five years as mayor and a total of 12 years on the city council. From 1972 to 1976 he served on the San Diego Coastal Commission.

He accepted the proclamation with a simple, “Thank you.”

Pearson also was recognized for taking an active role in development and community enhancement projects in Del Mar, including working along with Desi Arnaz and Jimmy Durante on the Seagrove Park fundraising campaign.

He presided over the first sign control ordinance and the billboard phaseout for Del Mar and was part of the purchase of the current site of City Hall.

“Tom has been a true public servant in every sense of the word,” Slater-Price said. “He deserves any and all gratitude for helping shape Del Mar into the beautiful city it is today.”
