Welcome to my website

It is my true honor to have this opportunity to run for Hermosa Beach City Council.  I see public service as a responsibility, a way of reciprocating for the opportunities I’ve been given.  This is why I became a firefighter, why I served on the Hermosa Beach Emergency Preparedness Commission and why I’m seeking to serve on our City Council.  I am blessed to have so many people supporting and encouraging me, and I hope to have a chance to share with you my vision for Hermosa Beach during this campaign.

Endorsed by County Firefighters

Working on the front line of public safety 

Michael is a firefighter for the City of Riverside.  His title is Engineer, and yes,

that means he drives the big red trucks, but his job description involves much more.  Michael’s work responsibilities include:

  • Responding to emergency medical, structure fires, technical rescues and hazardous materials calls
  • Fighting wildfires throughout the state of California as part of the Master Mutual Aid System
  • Last year, he was part of the effort to help protect Yosemite National Park fighting the Ferguson Fire

  • FEMA Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) California Task Force 6 member

  • The Task Force responds to natural disasters and terrorist attacks

If elected, Michael Detoy will be the most qualified member of the city council to manage our city budget.

Michael Detoy has a bachelor’s degree in finance and master’s degree in public administration


Michael is also a fiduciary trustee of the Southern California Firefighter’s Benefit Trust. The trust has 40 million dollars in assets under management and is about the same size as the budget of Hermosa Beach.
