About the One Pomona Campaign

TeamSandovalTim started thinking about serving as Pomona’s mayor after watching our city become more and more divided and dysfunctional in recent years. When Tim began talking to other community members about his concerns, he found that he wasn’t alone. Countless residents wanted to see Pomona become more united, functional, and healthy, and they encouraged Tim to step up to the task of helping us to become One Pomona.

With the support of the community, Team Sandoval launched their campaign in November of 2015. The One Pomona campaign emphasizes unity-in-diversity and holistic, long-term strategies for improving Pomona’s overall functionality and well-being. The reception to the campaign was immediate and overwhelmingly positive, and culminated in Tim’s election in 2016.

The Team Sandoval online community remains vibrant, with a strong core team. Sign up for our newsletter and/or ‘Like’ us on Facebook to start receiving team updates!

Our Core Values

Every Team Sandoval meeting begins with re-centering on the Core Values that we determined together. These values will govern our campaign, as well as Tim’s time in office.

  • Transparency 
    Externally and internally, we never want a subset of our campaign team to withhold information or avoid inviting input on a decision.
  • Integrity
    We want to be consistent with who we say we are in all areas, not compartmentalizing these values to just certain areas of behavior.
  • Honesty
    We strive to be truthful in what we communicate and follow through with our commitments.
  • Accountability 
    We need to hold each other accountable to our common values, and we welcome correction.
  • Community Input and Engagement 
    We are stronger when more people are engaged and contributing. We want everyone engaged in the future of Pomona, and pursuing this is what makes us a “grass-roots” campaign.
  • Hope/Optimism
    We are hopeful and optimistic for everyone– we acknowledge and try to understand problems because we truly believe we can find solutions that will make Pomona better.
  • People First
    Families and individuals are important to us– we value the well-being of the people of our community.
  • Regenerative Community
    As opposed to a “stuck community”we want to practice being a community with a sense of belonging, a sense of possibility, a sense of movement, a sense of self-worth.
  • Fairness and Respect
    We don’t treat anyone differently because of their status or wealth.
  • An Attitude of Service

    Leadership begins and ends with service.

  • Love and Empathy

    We are driven by genuine care and concern for our community.
