New 2020 Trustees

Tony Harris - Tony is a highly regarded thought leader, CEO coach, senior executive mentor and author. He is a subject matter expert on global business-to-business (B2B) Omnichannel marketing, eCommerce and eBusiness Modernization, Corporate/Crisis Communications, Issues Management, Public/Government Affairs, Experiential Marketing, Trademark/ Intellectual Property Matters and Strategic Planning. His career includes providing executive counsel to some of the most recognized brands embraced by consumers and shareholders alike. He has a long standing history in both business, and in the communities where he has lived, of providing his time, resources and sharing his key relationships/connections in an effort to serve his community in a meaningful way. Being appointed as a Trustee would enable him to continue with his long-standing commitment to being of service to others.

James Rudolph - James is a local attorney who was born and raised in La Jolla. He went to La Jolla Elementary, Stella Maris, All Hallows, Muirlands Middle School and La Jolla High School. His parents moved to La Jolla in 1958 and opened Harry’s Coffee Shop in 1960. He feels he has deep-rooted ties to the community, a lot of personal connections and therefore a lot of personal obligations, from his perspective, to give back to the community. He has national-level experience having worked in D.C. in two administrations, partisan and nonpartisan positions. He would like to use that experience and knowledge to give back to the community. His interests include short-term vacation rentals, business development, traffic flow, public safety and homeless outreach. 

Rick Dagon - Rick is a Wireless Network Technology Engineer. He has resided in La Jolla for over three years and is interested in joining the La Jolla Town Council as a trustee to work on keeping the beaches safe and clean, neighborhood watch, and homeless outreach. Rick hopes to use his expertise in technology to help the La Jolla Town Council improve their communication and interaction with the community.
