Daryl Supernaw was born and raised in Long Beach and is a lifelong resident of the 4th District. He is a graduate of Buffum Elementary, Stanford Junior High, Wilson High and L.B.C.C. He also earned both his B.A. and M.A. from CSULB. He has been married to his wife, Cheryl, for 35 years, and they have two adult children, Shaun and Lauren.
Having worked as a business and marketing consultant for the past 30 years, Supernaw has an extensive corporate business background. He has worked in a broad range of industries from port-related logistics to hospitality. His experience also includes both working for and running companies in “crisis management” situations. He has applied his private sector skills in working with virtually every department at City Hall. Developing relationships and gaining the respect of city staff has been the key to his success with so many community projects.
Daryl Supernaw has been a strong community advocate for many years. He founded the Atherton Corridor Neighborhood Association and maintained the association’s website in addition to publishing a monthly e-newsletter. His work with the Stearns Park Neighborhood Association included advocating on behalf of the residents throughout the duration of the Schroeder Hall Police Substation project. Supernaw is best known to Los Altos area residents for his 20-year fight to cover the dangerous and unsightly Atherton Street ditch. The end result was a $3 million infrastructure and beautification project built with non-local funds.
Citywide, Supernaw has received recognition for the online articles he has written about a variety of local issues. His series on the 7th Street bridge closure set the stage for Long Beach to receive $1.5 million in traffic mitigation funds from Caltrans/OCTA.
Supernaw’s environmental credentials include serving as a charter member and current chair of the Sustainable City Commission. He is also well-versed in the City’s budget process having served on the 4th District Budget Advisory Committee. Additionally, as the son of a former Long Beach firefighter, he has a keen understanding of the City’s public safety systems, personnel requirements and the economic challenges of our pension obligations.
"The residents of the 4th District want a representative who diligently addresses their concerns and knows how to get things done. They also want someone with a proven track record of accomplishments who can deliver on public safety, airport noise ordinance compliance, clean streets, economic stability and jobs. The 4th District voters deserve a councilmember who exemplifies honesty, integrity and the utmost sense of pride in the community. In addition to everything above, I pledge to always make the residents of the 4th district, not special interests, my number one priority.” - Daryl Supernaw
