My Top 3 Priorities

  • Combating climate change; expanding native tree plantings; increasing educational outreach programs; providing career training to the next generation of park stewards; and environmental scientists; and ensuring an equitable distribution of resources
  • Keeping the Bay Area safe by actively preventing another tragic fire; actively introducing more native plants, which through evolutionary biology are less prone to catching fire; removing flammable hazards in our Parks lands; and
  • Advocating for the public by increasing transparency for all East Bay Regional Park District Board decisions, and advancing park equity by ensuring that all of our community members have the right to access our Regional Parks regardless of zip code
