Kellejian honored as champion of coast

Solana Beach Councilman Joe Kellejian was named a Champion of the Coast by the California Coastal Coalition in a March 4 ceremony.

The award came in recognition of efforts to improve, restore and maintain the region’s shoreline. Kellejian has long been working towards beach-sand maintenance and is an advocate of banning smoking on beaches and parks. County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Pam Slater-Price and San Diego Councilwoman Donna Frye were also honored, along with three others.

Kellejian said the award is indicative of efforts that stretch well beyond just him.

“It’s not only an award for me — it’s for the city of Solana Beach and the citizens here,” he said. “There have been things that we’ve initiated here in Solana Beach that are far reaching not only regionally statewide but nationwide so we’ll continue to be a leader in these issues.”
