My Top 3 Priorities

  • My top priority is electing Democrats to local, state, and national offices starting with the Presidency of the USA.
  • My second priority is expanding the franchise by helping to organize a North SCCounty Voter Registration Drive which I have carried out since 2000.
  • My third priority is to strengthen and to expand our local Democratic Headquarters here in North Santa Clara County---the Democratic Volunteer Center.



     I have been an active member of the Democratic Party my entire adult life for the values of the Demcratic Party describe my personal beliefs.  Since 2000  I have been a member of the Santa Clara County Democratic Party Central Committee and every year a delegate to the State Democratic Party Convention. In 2012, I was honored by receiving the CA Democratic Party Volunteer of the Year Award (Region 5).  From 2008 - 2015 I served as a member of the Executive Board of the SCC Democratic Party and Director of the 23 Clubs of Santa Clara County.  In addition, I have served as President of the Peninsula Democratic Coalition (PDC) 2011 - 2013 and a member of the Executive Board of the PDC since the year 2001.

     Shortly after my retirement from the Palo Alto Unified School District in 2005, I received the Sally Siegel Lifetime Achievement Award in Education from the Palo Alto Unified School District.  In my 34 years in education, I served both as a teacher and as an administrator.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

     I am a Progressive Democrat who works hard to promote our democracy by standing up for expanding the franchise and for promoting transparency in our democracy.  Getting "dark" money out of politics is one of my highest priorities for protecting our democracy.  In addition, I am concerned about the wellbeing of the next generation.  To that end I am very supportive of fighting climate change and the threat it poses for human and ecosystem survival.  Tied to my lifelong advocacy for children, I am a passionate supporter of ediucation including the promotion of a universal, high quality early childhood education for all of America's children.
