A self-proclaimed advocate for and a partner with Grover Beach residents, nonprofits and the business community, Lee would also like to see completion of the Digital West partnership with the city to bring a broadband network to the area and advancement of economic development projects, including the Grover Beach Lodge and Convention Center, he said.
