My Top 3 Priorities

  • Expanded course offerings with detailed plans to support STEM and Arts programs
  • Web-cast and record all committee meetings, especially hand-picked committee meetings
  • Meritocracy in hiring and competitive bidding for construction projects, favoring new construction over renovations

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

  • Transparency
  • Fiscal Responsibility by "doing the math"
  • Taking full responsibility of good governance (no excuses, e.g. we got bad advice)
  • Accountability (e.g. if we get bad designs or financing we don't use that company again)
  • Voting for experts in public office provides best oversight
  • Opening up the design process to public participation will allow more experts to weigh in decisions
  • There are too many ways to effectively bypass sunshine laws (e.g. The Brown Act)
