Tyller Williamson for Monterey City Council
Growing up in a military family shaped Tyller’s identity in numerous ways. Since childhood he has experienced and learned what it means to live a life of service, particularly to our military members and their families. Frequent moves taught him resilience as he and his family constantly had to find new ways to adapt and thrive within new environments. Witnessing his mother’s distinguished career in military service, Tyller has seen what it means to show steadfast commitment to our country and developed his sense of civic duty, ultimately leading to his career as a public servant.
Tyller is entering his eighth year of service at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). He currently serves as the Executive Assistant to the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Director of the Information Technology and Communication Services (ITACS). His task in this role is to assist the organization in the recruitment and retention of information technology professionals, not only at an educational institution, but also within the federal government.
Tyller’s prior role was a Financial Analyst, where he exercised oversight of research accounts for faculty in the Oceanography and Applied Mathematics departments.. While there he completed the required courses towards obtaining his Financial Management Certification. This professional training positions him to act as a community watchdog on the city’s budget and ensure scarce public funds are spent appropriately.
Tyller has also served as a Program Manager with the Center for Executive Education at NPS, where he implemented numerous changes to improve efficiency as the agency faced declining resources. Under Tyller’s leadership, the Center became much more productive while simultaneously meeting the needs of faculty and staff.
In 2016, Tyller enrolled into the Defense Business Management (equivalent to a Masters in Business Administration) program, with a concentration in Manpower, in the Graduate School of Business and Public Policy at NPS.
Tyller graduated from Cal State Monterey Bay with a degree in Human Communication, Pre-Law. His senior project, titled, “Healthcare Town Hall for Young Adults,” entailed a panel discussion to include: Monterey County Supervisor, Jane Parker; Director of Department of Employment and Social Services, Elliott Robinson; Director of CSUMB Campus Health Center, Ms. Caroline Haskell, among others.
Community & Civic Work
Tyller currently serves on the Architecture Review Committee (ARC) for the City of Monterey and to the Housing Advisory Committee (HAC) for Monterey County.
Tyller also managed the 2012 Barack Obama campaign headquarters in San Francisco and was tasked with developing the first neighborhood team for the campaign in Monterey County. He managed a staff of 30 and coordinated the efforts of over 500 volunteers in President Obama’s successful re-election effort. Tyller was proud to be a part of increasing the total election turnout by 80,250 votes in San Francisco from the previous election.
Last year, Tyller led a team of community organizers to create Monterey Peninsula Pride- the first Pride event in this community for over a decade. This unifying and inclusive event enjoyed support from diverse community organization such as churches, synagogues, LGBTQIA+ organizations, legal groups, healthcare and mental health organizations and numerous public officials. It was a powerful event, with the 700+ in attendance united by our commitment to respect for all, and regional solidarity!
Personal Life and Why I’m Running
Tyller and his partner Ivan recently purchased their first home together in Monterey. They love taking their dog, Sasha, for walks and bike rides at the Wharf and Cannery Row all year around. They enjoy the beauty of the region—from the trails of Big Sur, to walking barefoot on Monterey Beach.
Getting involved and becoming active in his local community has become the most fulfilling experience of Tyller’s life. Working collaboratively with organizations and community members, Tyller has had the joy of meeting and working with numerous individuals who show responsibility, strength and commitment—virtues he has found are particularly unique to our region. You inspire Tyller to lead our community and local government with integrity and honor. You, Tyller’s fellow citizens , are the reason he has chosen to run!
