The second year of the Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce’s quarterly lunch series entitled “The Mayor’s Lunch” will feature Mayors from three local cities who share borders. Mayor Ed Waage, the quarterly host of this series will be a panelist along with Arroyo Grande Mayor Pro Tem Keith Storton and Grover Beach Mayor Jeff Lee. Moderating the panel will be KSBY morning news anchor Dustin Klemann.

The panel will answer a series of questions compiled by the Pismo Chamber board of directors and ambassadors that reflect the interests and concerns of these three neighboring communities.

The luncheon will be held at Inn at the Pier in the downstairs banquet room on Thursday, February 13 from 12-1:130. Inn at the Pier hosted the first of the series when it began in January 2019 and has been a fantastic sponsor and supporter of the successful meeting format. The meeting will include lunch and tickets can be purchased at the chamber web site www.pismochamber.com under “events.” Ticket prices for members are $30, and $35 for non-members.

The Pismo Beach Chamber of Commerce is the oldest chamber in the Five Cities, celebrating 98 years in 2020. It is the goal of the chamber to support and promote the local business economy as well as the relationship between local businesses and city government. The Pismo Beach Chamber has a unique focus as a small but successful city with a long coastline. Consistently rated as one of the 25 best beaches in California, and number five in California in terms of transient occupancy tax, the success of our membership is inexplicably tied to the nearly 2.5 million visitors to Pismo Beach annually. The chamber exists in service to our business members and their economic success throughout the year — in high season and low — and to advocate on their behalf through our strong ties to city counsel and staff.

Moderator Dustin Klemann is co-anchor of KSBY News Daybreak weekday mornings from 5-7 a.m. He joined the team in June of 2018. Dustin comes to KSBY and the west coast from Billings, Montana, where he served as anchor and reporter of KSBY’s sister station KTVQ. He is a graduate of the University of Montana and holds a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
