Meet Noli


Noli Zosa is a small business owner, community advocate and candidate for San Diego City Council’s district 7, where he has lived for nearly three decades. 

Noli, the son of immigrants, obtained both his undergraduate and law school degrees from the University of San Diego. While at USD, he served for 3 years as the Student Director of a Legal Resource Center that USD School of Law operated in the Bayside Community Center to assist low income San Diegans with their housing issues. After graduation, he joined his family's business where he managed a boutique bed and breakfast, wedding facility, and guava tree ranch. In 2008, he became a founding partner of the well known local restaurant chain, Dirty Birds. Noli has helped expand his company to four locations with one additional planned expansion in the next year. Dirty Birds employs over a 140 people and has won numerous awards both locally and nationally.

As a business owner, Noli has seen firsthand how overbearing taxes and regulations can affect the ability to create new jobs and grow a business. He believes our local government should work to facilitate a strong economy, so all our residents can have the opportunity to succeed. In order to ensure a strong future, San Diego must make smart investments in our infrastructure and public safety, while protecting tax dollars.

Over the years, Noli has served on numerous city and community boards, commissions, and organizations. His experience in both the private and public sector, along with his dedication to the community will make him a strong voice for District 7.
