Thanks for visiting my website.
I’m Steve Young. I’m running for Mayor of Benicia, and I hope you will vote for me this November.
I am sure you agree that we need to get serious about the issues and challenges facing our City, and that we need a Mayor ready and able to take on these challenges. This website addresses many of the issues we need to face, and will be updated regularly as things develop.
2020 is already shaping up to be a contentious election. The Presidential election will be loud and mostly negative, but I hope that we can make our local elections issue-based, without descending into negative campaigning.
I trust and hope my opponents will also commit to fair and clean campaigning, and focus on their plans and vision for Benicia..

Latest: "I support Steve Young for Mayor of Benicia because he has been a true leader on behalf of our community, including Downtown businesses. Steve is both principled and pragmatic. He is willing to take progressive and, at times, unpopular positions when necessary, yet he stays committed to his convictions. I also appreciate that he keeps a close eye on City finances and is fiscally responsible. Benicia needs a strong leader to guide us to the future. Join me in voting for Steve Young for Mayor 2020."

"I am endorsing Steve Young for Mayor of Benicia. I have worked with Steve in the Benicia Strong group for the past few months and have been impressed with his concern for the citizens of Benicia and of Solano County, his empathy toward the plight of many citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic and his forward-thinking ideas for meeting the needs of his constituency.
Steve has worked to assist efforts to feed Benicians at risk of food insecurity. His point of view has been helpful as I have developed the Food is Free Solano programs.
I am confident that Steve has the necessary qualifications and experience to successfully guide Benicia through the next few years as we get through the pandemic and enter recovery. Times ahead might be challenging, but I think Steve is up to the challenge."
Director of Food is Free Solano and Solano Gleaning Initiative
