Hill presented the award during “Java with Jerry,” a community gathering on October 27 at Mazzetti’s Bakery in Pacifica. “San Mateo County is rich in natural beauty, and some of its greatest treasures are here in Pacifica, with its more than six miles of beaches and shoreline habitats,” Hill said. “Much of it is staggeringly beautiful, and were it not for some key organizations in the community and their members, those very beaches could well be a staggering mess. Today, I’d like to recognize an organization that has been a great environmental leader, working with the city and residents – that’s the Pacific Beach Coalition.”
