Tom Ponton


I’m a lifelong resident of Mar Vista, married 38 years, with 3 adult children, all living in the Mar Vista area. I’m now also happy to announce that I have a new granddaughter. I’m proud to include on my resume, that way back in about 1998-2004 I helped found the Mar Vista Community Council, the Mar Vista Park Advisory Board, and the Mar Vista Roller Hockey Rink and League.

Today my passions include helping organize the Annual MVNA Block Party, the Annual Mar Vista Park Fall Festival, and the Annual Mar Vista Strut Your Mutt Charity Team.
For the past 3 years I have also been spearheading the non-profit Mar Vista Landkeepers’ ongoing improvements to the medians on Charnock Road and Barry Ave.

I encourage each of you to continue your involvement in Mar Vista and further explore the many rewarding opportunities we have here to give back.
