Protect Paso


Community member Brandon Stier, owner of protect paso gives information about his achievements in contributing to the paso community


“Empowering citizens to make lasting positive impacts in their communities,” creates the motive for the organization of PRotect Paso in accomplishing their goal of serving their community and their members. Brandon Stier has changed community involvement with this creation of keeping Paso safe and informed, with local news being reported 24/7 on the page. The togetherness that belongs in this organization creates the unification of all paso citizens being the change that solves every issue in a politically and racially divided world. 

I make mistakes, but I never fail. Failure is only when you repeat those mistakes over and over again. Sometimes I prefer making mistakes cause it always leads to opportunities to learn, teach, and become better as an individual or better.

Brandon Stier



Brandon Stier is a 35 year old paso high graduate from the class of 2005, who has been native to this town.  He owns multiple businesses including Stier Events and has two children. 

Protect Paso initially started in 2020 during the riots and protests that occurred around the whole country. With his regard of keeping his town safe, he created this local organization in order to support local business, police officers and later use it as a way to benefit his community. When PRotect Paso was initially established it gained over 6,000 community members in less than 24 hours. Currently this organization consists of over 11,000 members constantly receiving over 335,000 engagement notifications monthly. 

“Almost all of our members are very, very active and engaged which is what makes this group so successful to our community and the “power” that it brings to help make those positive impacts,” Stier said.

In the beginning first year of PRotect Paso they were able to raise over 250,000 dollars for local officers, families and the homeless in the crisis of the California Fires. They then created a “Tsunami or Flood” campaign to help local businesses struggling to boost their sales in _. A small tax increase then provided 10 million dollars a year to Police, Firefighters, and roads with PRotect Paso playing a major role in passing the Measure J-20. 

“I’m a firm believer that it’s our civil duty to serve and give back to our community. If we don’t have a strong community, we don’t have a strong future. Our community is made up of many different cultures, backgrounds, skill-sets, talents, business owners, leaders, problem solvers, and pioneers,” Steir said. 

 In Dec. 2021 Steir concluded his second annual Christmas At The Steir’s Event, which was a toy and food drive that raised over 1,000 dollars, 700 pounds of food and a trailer full of toys for children battling cancer. They partnered with Along Comes Hope and Loaves and Fishes to create this event. 

“Everything I do is solely for the love of Paso Robles and its citizens, and to set examples for our youth to hopefully learn from, follow and become more innovative than myself in building a future for our city. It’s going to take all of us,” Steir said.
