Keynote Speaker, Mayor Hall

Don’t miss this year’s special State of the Community event where Mayor Matt Hall gives his last keynote address before retiring at the end of the year. Mayor Hall has been serving Carlsbad through his city roles for 29 years since 1994: Mayor (three terms), Mayor Pro Tem (two terms), and City Council member (three terms). In addition to his services to the city and residents, he is a Village business owner since 1970, raised his family here, and contributed to the community through several nonprofit organizations. Join us as we celebrate Mayor Hall’s final role as keynote speaker plus an in-depth overview of the City of Carlsbad and an annual State of the City video presentation.
