OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE
RAMONA TOWN HALL
"THE GEM OF THE BACKCOUNTRY"
In the Heart of San Diego County - Dedicated 1894
The Honorary Mayor Contest is the official
fundraiser of the Ramona Town Hall, and was
first conceived and sponsored by the Ramona
Sentinel in 1984. The funds raised from the
contest help with ongoing expenses, such as
insurance, water, electricity, etc.. Candidates
"earn" one vote for each dollar they raise for
the Town Hall. Unlike a "normal" election,
there is no limit to how many "votes" you can
cast nor how many candidates you can vote for.
The candidate with the most "votes" wins a two
year term to carry the title of "Honorary
Mayor," a position that carries no official
power, but the responsibility to represent the
town as an ambassador of goodwill. The mayor
will be awarded an official sash.
4. Chair the Town Hall Fundraising Committee
The Honorary Mayor is encouraged (but not required,) to attend local and regional events in the capacity of “Community Ambassador.” The Ramona Chamber of Commerce will assist the mayor and make suggestions as to events to attend. The Mayor may also make decisions to attend county or state events at will.
Each dollar collected and turned in by June 30th at 7:00 pm to the Ramona Town Hall equals one vote. The candidate with the most votes (dollars) wins the “election.”
Each candidate is encouraged to keep a record of
dollars collected and turned in. It is suggested
to photocopy checks for your records and (if you
please,) send thank you cards or letters for
large donations. The Honorary Mayor Committee
can provide a “Thank You” form letter for this
All proceeds benefit the Ramona Town Hall, Inc.,
