Lance Walker



Lance was born in King City, California on August 25,1968 and has lived in Greenfield his
entire life. He attended Greenfield Union School District schools and Graduated 8th grade in
1982. He then attended King City High School, graduating in 1986.

Lance began working at Green Valley Industrial Supply in 1987 and has remained with them
until the present day, employed as an outside salesman, covering territory from San Ardo to
Salinas.

Lance coached Little League Baseball for seven years, served as a volunteer for the Greenfield
Fire District for two years and also served on the Harvest Festival Board for the first three years
of the event.

Lance had not thought about getting into local politics until certain issues sparked his attention.
His father was a former Greenfield City Councilman in the late 1980s and his step-Grandfather
also served as a Greenfield City Councilman/Mayor Pro Tem in the 1970s.

Running for the Greenfield City Council in 2012, campaigning on public safety, economic
growth and bridging the divide within the community, was a success. He won a seat and was
sworn in as a City Councilman in December of 2012. During this election, five people ran for
two open seats.

From Lance's perspective, Greenfield was once a hidden jewel in South Monterey County and a
town that once thrived. He feels the need to bring in new business, box stores and attract people
to move to Greenfield. The current projects of Yanks Museum and potentially a South Monterey
County Courthouse, are huge opportunities for Greenfield.

Putting personal feelings aside, Walker wants what is best for Greenfield and the people who
voted him into office. Many challenging decisions lay ahead, but rest assured, Walker will do
what is best for Greenfield! Walker is very approachable and will take the time to address any
concerns or answer questions you may have. Let's move Greenfield forward together!
