Official Candidate’s Statement:
My name is Victoria Lozzi and I am running for City Treasurer. I am passionate about banking and finance, and feel that I have the experience to add value to our city.
With 28 years of corporate banking experience, the last sixteen of which working with government, higher education and nonprofit clients, I have worked with various organizations to finance projects, establish efficient and cost effective banking operations, and manage and safekeep investment assets.
In addition, as the Vice President of Finance of the California [UC Berkeley] Alumni Association Board of Directors, I helped create a solution to finance $10 million in improvements to aging facilities. Most recently I served as Treasurer of the Palos Verdes Chapter of National Charity League, Inc., where I was responsible for managing the operating budget and conducting all banking transactions, while meeting the Chapter’s goal of building operating reserves.
As an experienced finance professional, I will work to be a valuable, consultative resource for our City Council, Finance Director and staff, providing guidance to help our city reach its goals in the most financially responsible way. My career and volunteer experience has prepared me for this job, and I respectfully ask for your vote.
Candidate’s Personal Statement:
Why Victoria Lozzi?
I bring a new, fresh perspective to the City Treasurer position and to the City of Palos Verdes Estates. This is not just about managing investments, but also about ensuring there is fiscal discipline in place that helps our City reach its goals.
I am committed to proper process and transparency, and I am not afraid to speak up if that is not happening. Elected leaders and City staff have an obligation to put the needs of the residents first, and to guard against potential conflicts of interest, real or perceived. Always.
Thank you for your vote!
