• Casey Lucius Announces Bid for Central Coast Congressional Seat

     Pacific Grove Councilwoman Resigns Naval War College Professorship to Run

    caseymugshot6.15.15Casey Lucius, Pacific Grove City Councilwoman and former professor of national security decision-making at the Naval War College at the Naval Postgraduate School, announced June 15 that she is running in the 2016 primary for the 20th District House of Representatives seat now held by a 23-year incumbent.

    Lucius, a Republican who will turn 39 this month, is a Navy veteran and former intelligence officer specializing in political decision-making, resigned her tenured position at the Naval War College on June 1 to comply with federal regulations that restrict federal employees’ political activity.

    “It’s time to step up with new ideas and a new generation of solutions,” Lucius said. “The traditional clash of ideologies has resulted in stalemate and non-representative government. The nation and the Central Coast should be represented by a person who can energetically lead and moderate, not follow partisan dictates.”

    Lucius made her announcement by posting a short introductory video on her web site – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJtBl0b5RYY Lucius received her BA in political sciences from Ashland University in Ohio, MA in National Security Affairs from the Naval Postgraduate School, and PhD in political science at the University of Hawaii-Manoa. Growing up in a working-class environment, Lucius worked her way through school by bussing tables at 15 and waitressing at 16.   But, she said, her opportunity for higher education came from her stepfather, Ernie, who helped support her. Then she attended the Navy’s Officer Candidate School which enabled her to further her education and work throughout the US and Asia.  Her husband, Bob, is a retired US Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel. The couple has a five-year-old son, Bobby. Further information can be obtained by visiting www.caseylucius.com
