“My wife, Patty, and I have known Mony for many years now since he was a policeman here in Livermore. We have found that he has a genuine concern for our Livermore community and youth.

Through his personable nature, Mony is able to connect with everyone, which has served him well as a Livermore policeman, local realtor, Rotarian, local non-profit leader, and soon as our Mayor. His goal is to make an impact on our community, by addressing the issues that impact our city and his high level of energy will certainly help cause others to get more involved.”

Ron Scott – Chief of Police, Retired, Livermore Police Department
“I fully support Mony Nop on his candidacy for Mayor of Livermore. I’ve known Mony for twenty-five years. He served the community as a Livermore Police Officer and was known for his enthusiasm, honor, and distinction. He always demonstrated care and empathy for all members of our community. He has poured his heart and soul into finishing his education, becoming a legitimate entrepreneur/local businessman and philanthropist. Look closely at Mony’s career path and you will find someone who always has the best interest of others at heart.

Jay Davis
“I urge you to support Mony Nop for Livermore Mayor in the November Election! Mony has an amazingly wide set of life experiences: moving from being a refugee from genocide in Southeast Asia, working as a farmworker in the Central Valley, putting himself through school to become a police officer, and finally achieving his degrees and Realtor’s License. Mony and I first met fifteen years ago when I joined the Rotary Club of Livermore and he was an active duty police officer, raising two sons as a single parent. My offices at the Hertz Foundation were in the same building where he successfully built his real-estate practice and led to the formation of the Tri Valley Non-Profit Alliance. Mony’s skills and warmth were visible regularly.

Mony is a pillar of the local community and of the civic processes that support those in need and those who are under-served. He is uniquely prepared for civic leadership. He is also uniquely prepared to succeed John Marchand in the tradition of good and transparent governance. He will provide positive and creative leadership in the present time of economic and health distress. I strongly support him and urge all Livermore citizens to do so as well. Mony will make us proud of both him and our City.”

“Mony Nop is like the energizer bunny. He’s worked hard to make a difference in his hometown and his energy and enthusiasm for all-things Livermore is contagious.”

Sblend Sblendorio
“Mony’s story is uniquely American and a triumph of human spirit. Any community would be blessed to have him as a leader.

Mony and his family came to our country because of persecution in Cambodia. They struggled to learn American customs but quickly adapted. Mony succeeded in college and, proudly, earned his badge as a Livermore police officer. He believes that, as an officer, he must make life better for Livermore residents. He is now a talented real estate broker, whose guiding principle is to give back to the Livermore community.

As Mayor, Mony’s American experience will make Livermore a better place for residents. It is my pleasure to endorse Mony to be the next Mayor of Livermore.”

Mike Peretti – Police Lieutenant, Retired, Livermore Police Department
As a Police Lieutenant (Retired) for the Livermore Police Department, I had the pleasure of working with Mony for his entire seventeen-year career as a police officer. Without hesitation, I can say that Mony is the epitome of a community servant, who has demonstrated the characteristics of a true LEADER, humility, passion, and vision. He is creative, and one who can bring new and viable solutions to lingering social issues within the community, and build upon the foundation of success from those who came before him. Mony equals success for any community. “Honor Lies Within the Service of Others.”

Steve Goodman
“I have known Mony for 20 years. Mony’s passion for people, especially youth, is something that impressed me from the moment I met him. He truly cares about the Livermore community and its residents. He has worked hard to overcome obstacles to become the person he is today, a kind, compassionate, honest, hard-working man. His creative vision allows him to generate big ideas. He has a drive and determination that will serve him well as mayor. He is always willing to listen to others and has been successful in building relationships and consensus among teams. Mony’s positive attitude and respectful demeanor will contribute to his success as an elected official. It is my pleasure to endorse him for the office of mayor of Livermore.”

Pat Mayfield
Mony Nop is a natural leader and innovator. He is a thinker, a planner, a doer, a problem solver and always says, “Thank You.” He gets things done. He sees issues and opportunities and does something about it. He is tenacious and relentless in his pursuits, which are many and always about something good or better for others.

He is one of the most energetic people I know and is strong in his resolve. His personal story illustrates his incredible strength. His success in his professional career validates that he accomplishes his goals…and always exceeding his goals.

I met Mony in 2003 when he was a student in the St. Mary’s College Satellite program offered in Livermore. The marketing class’s final project was to create a “tangible product” and a written marketing plan. Thinking out of the box, Mony asked if he could have an exception. He wanted to “tell his story.” I agreed. His project for that class became the beginning of his book, “Officer M. N. O. P. and Me.” His amazing 92-page story and activity book for ages five to eight– was launched in the summer of 2018.

On February 2, 2019, I had the privilege of seeing Mony receive the prestigious Meritorious Service Award as part of the 2019 St. Mary’s Distinguished Alumni Awards. This award is for his service to his community and to St. Mary’s College. I am honored to be one of his St. Mary’s professors and would gladly endorse him as the next Mayor of Livermore.”

Mary Anne Rozsa
“I have known Mony Nop for approximately 15+ years as I first met him when he was a Livermore Police Officer. His service to the community has always been outstanding, and he is so dedicated to helping others with a variety of charitable organizations that serve the needy and in particular the youth in our schools.

He is aware of the needs of our City and our Citizens, and I can totally recommend Mony for Mayor because of his dedication to improving Livermore, and he will be responsive to the issues that Livermore will face in the next few years.

Cheryl Blea
“I am a long-time resident of Livermore. I am genuinely excited at the prospect of Mony Nop running for the position of Mayor of Livermore. I have had the pleasure of knowing Mony for over two decades and had the privilege of working with him on several outreach projects for the betterment of our city. Mony has proven to be a true servant of the community and one who is passionate about people of all ages and backgrounds. He is by all accounts a wonderful person. He is bright, hardworking, respectful, dedicated, and humble. He also has a fine demeanor, a listening ear, a great business mind, and a positive attitude.

In sum, I have been, and remain completely impressed with Mony and I believe he would be the ideal candidate to represent our great city through changes, challenges, and victories. I strongly urge your serious consideration of Mony and I recommend him without reservation.”

J.R. Romero, Tri-Valley Auto Body
“I have known Mony for many years. I have seen him perform his duties as a Livermore Police Officer with dignity and respect protecting Livermore’s citizens and working with youth. As a member of the Rotary Club of Livermore, he volunteered on almost every project receiving an award for it.

In his career in real estate, Mony goes above and beyond for his clients and I know as Mayor he will do the same to proudly serve the citizens of Livermore with honesty and integrity. I’m voting for Mony Nop!”

Russ Goodwin, Fire Captain, Livermore/Pleasanton Fire Department
“I have known Mony for over 25 years. We first met when he started the Livermore Police Department. Mony has always shown great compassion for everyone in the community, especially the children. Mony was a D.A.R.E. Officer (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) while employed with the L.P.D. and has gone on to create the nonprofit organization, Rising Young Leaders, which is establishing an academy to foster youth leadership. He also co-founded the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance, bringing all nonprofits from the East Bay together so they can collaborate and share resources.

Mony has shown himself to be a leader within the community; he continues to be involved with efforts to reduce homelessness, feed the needy, and other issues relevant to the community. Mony founded the annual Mony Nop Turkey Drop, which helps raise money and feed those in need within our Livermore Valley.

Mony, if given the opportunity, would do amazing things for our community; he would be a great Mayor of the City of Livermore. He deserves your vote on November 3rd.”

Belia and Paul Martinez
“I’ve known Mony for about 15 years now since he was a police officer with the Livermore Police Department.  His work and life have always been about the service of others. He loves helping people, especially those who are less privileged in our community. This is evident by all of the charity work that Mony has participated in, from being a liaison for the police department and the community to teaching the DARE program to various schools in the school district, to hosting food and turkey drive and to volunteering his time in the community. I support Mony to be the next Mayor of Livermore because he is a leader who is kind, considerate, generous, friendly, compassionate, and is very passionate in all that he does to help our community. Thank you, Mony for all that you do for our Livermore community and beyond.”

Rich Zogaric
“I have known Mony Nop for nearly 20-years. From the fields of Cambodia to a child in America, Mony quickly learned to overcome adversity and embrace any challenge that faced him. As a young man growing up, Mony recognized his calling to serve his community the best way he knew how: As a police officer. Mony continued to give back to the community of Livermore by embracing the position of DARE officer and PAL officer. Now, as a local businessman and published author of children’s books, Mony strives to continue in his calling to serve his community by committing himself to serve the citizens of Livermore in City Hall!

Carrie Ulrich
“When I first met Mony Nop, he was a larger than life Livermore Police Officer. At that time, part of his assignment involved visiting and participating in activities with students at a middle school program. I’ve known Mony for decades. I’ve known him as a police officer, a friend, a family man, and a realtor. Mony has many talents and he is so good with people of all ages. I’m confident that he can do anything that he sets his mind to. He inspires me!”

Brian Nakashima
“I have known Mony Nop for almost 20 years since I first coached his son in basketball. During that time, I’ve seen him in many roles.

As a single father, he was a dedicated family man who prioritized his kids first. He was a dedicated police officer who came to love the city of Livermore. He built a successful real estate business which he used to fund his many philanthropic endeavors.

Not stopping there, he collaborated to start another organization to help others run their own non-profits. As a struggling child himself, he knows that the future is our children, so he designed programs to help develop leadership in our youth. He also authored a children’s book showing children how police officers help kids and their community. He became a dancer, a motivational speaker, and a leader in the community.

These were just a few of his many accomplishments. Because of all this, I believe Mony is an innovative leader who above all gets things done. Now, he believes he can best serve our city of Livermore as its Mayor. I do not know anyone who is more suited for this job.”

Rick Mayfield
“I’ve known Mony for almost a decade. Besides his infectious smile and charismatic demeanor, you can trust him upon meeting him. In the nearly ten years that I’ve come to call him my friend, Mony has built on that trust, through honoring commitments and by staying true to his word.

Mony’s demonstrated passion for helping others, including founding an organization that focuses on providing our local youth with leadership opportunities, providing turkeys and additional resources to a local food bank through the “Mony Nop Turkey Drop,” to his involvement in the DARE program to keep kids off drugs during his tenure as a Livermore Police Officer, to acting as an informal mentor to me and countless others, helping to improve my business and leadership skills. Mony has been an inspiration to me as well as the greater Livermore community. I’ve always thought that one day Mony would make a fine Mayor for the city of Livermore, and I will be proud to cast my vote for him. “

Trent Thompson
“When I first met Mony, he was direct, genuine, and polite. I have had the privilege to witness his passion for developing young leaders and consider myself lucky to be an individual he has invested his time and energy into. As I am building my own community and network Mony has offered a clear open door. He ends every interaction with “what can I do to help? and capitalizes on every opportunity to be an informal mentor.”  My experience has led me to believe Mony genuinely cares for people, for his community, and is an excellent Leader.”

Matt Rusca, President, Grandflow, Inc.
“I have known Mony for over 20 years. I first meet him when he was protecting our streets as a police officer. I have been involved with Mony on several different fundraising causes that have all been part of helping our community. Mony has always been about the community. Donating not only his time but his money to help the less fortunate in our city. As a longtime Livermore resident and business owner, I strongly endorse Mony for Mayor. He is the right choice to bring our city back together after several years of divide. With his experience as a public servant and local business owner it gives him the insight to lead our fine city.”

Mary Mele
“Mony will be an amazing mayor for the City of Livermore. Evident from the moment we met when he was an officer with LPD and worked with the DARE program in our schools, is his over-the-top care for others. Years later, after hearing his personal story, I could see how everything he does is to improve the world around him and help others see how they can rise to their best self and be part of building a community together. I am most excited to see Mony connect the people of Livermore together and ignite the untapped talents and potential that resides here and watch how the City of Livermore will flourish under his leadership.”

Taylor Parker
“I first met Mony three years ago when he offered to be a lead sponsor for a school initiative of mine. Since meeting, we have become friends. In our friendship I have heard and seen his passion for helping people from every walk of life in our community and beyond. He brings people together, puts a plan into motion, and gets the job done. Mony is my choice for Mayor because of his strong work ethic, exceptional moral character, and desire to make Livermore the absolute best it can be. Join me in voting for Mayor Mony Nop in 2020!”

Monte Martella
“I’ve had the pleasure to meet Mony Nop at the high school I teach at. He was giving a presentation to students about life after high school. His life story is moving.

He took time from his busy schedule to meet with me one on one and to talk about my small business and how to reach out. He is a wealth of knowledge and lives to give back. He has the art of giving back down to a science and is always looking for ways to improve.

Reach out. Get to know him. I’ve never seen a heart so big. He has the leadership to run, improve, and unite old town with new town.”
