My Top 3 Priorities

  • Everything revolves around finance. It is with my background of almost 35 years in the financial world that I hope to continue to monitor and insure the financial strength of the city.
  • Walnut Creek has a strong sense of community. My priority is to foster and increase that community sense so that as changes occur, the heart and soul of the city will remain the same.
  • A priority for me is to insure that the the services the city provides remain in place to assure an extraordinary quality of life for our residents.
