Biography

Abe Lincoln (yes, that's his real name) graduated from the Cal Poly Business school in 1992 with a concentration in Financial Management and a minor in Psychology, ready to take on the world. His journey into the world of business began with Financial Services, and over the years he worked his way through roles in Operations, Marketing, Finance, and Project Management for Fortune 500 companies (Household, Transamerica, and GE). At times, he left the corporate world to run smaller businesses, taking a CFO role for an aviation company and a COO role for a healthcare company. Abe has developed extensive experience working with the public sector for over 10 years in roles at Microsoft and United Healthcare.

In July of 2017, he took on the role of Interim Executive Director at the SLO Noor Foundation, a local non-profit that provides free medical, dental, and vision care to uninsured adults in SLO county, and by January 2018 the role was made permanent. Abe is a strong believer in the "Learn by Doing" motto instilled at Cal Poly. He understands the importance of diversifying and continually growing his skill set and then “taking on challenges that not only excite, but scare me.” Abe credits his successes to a strong foundation in the fundamentals of business, combined with years of people-management, and he does not believe in the word "impossible." 

Abe loves traveling, music, spending time with his four children, and is also a bit of a sports fanatic.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

We want SLO to be the small town of the future, not the past. I envision a new kind of small town charm, with beautifully designed homes and businesses, ecologically built and available to all residents. I see a place where neighbors take care of neighbors, period. 

I believe that someday the nation will look to SLO as the leader in smart growth and social justice.
