Biography

Eric Lucan, current Mayor of the City of Novato, has a strong track record in elected office, community service, and business. He is a known local leader who is passionate about helping kids and seniors, protecting our environment, and giving our workers, students and small businesses a chance to succeed in a changing economy. He listens to constituents, develops creative solutions, and stays focused on achieving real, measurable results.

During his first term on the City Council, Novato has erased a multi-million dollar budget deficit, passed a measure to phase out Styrofoam, and protected and enhanced parkland and open spaces. Eric has also been a leader on regional issues, serving as a board member of the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) and the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM).

Eric is a strong believer in community service and has given much of his time to serving as a youth director to middle school and high school students. He has also volunteered with the Novato Police Department, served as a board member for the Marin School of the Arts and the Novato Financing Authority, chaired the Recreation, Cultural, and Community Services Commission for the City of Novato, and led highly successful fundraising drives for local parks and community projects.

Eric earned his Master’s in Business Administration (summa cum laude) from Georgia State University in Atlanta. He is currently the Chief Marketing Officer for Mike’s Bikes located in Novato. His background in business and technology has helped shape his successful approach in elected office. In 2012, the North Bay Business Journal named Eric to its “40 under 40” for his business and civic work.

As a Novato native, Eric has deep roots in the community. His parents, John and Loretta Lucan, raised Eric in Novato and are still living here today. Eric and his wife Kiley have been married for 10 years and are proud parents of their newborn son Noah.
