Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am running for Redondo Beach City Council because our city is faced with many critical challenges that demand independent, analytical and fair-minded leadership.

As a resident of our community for over 18 years, I know the important decisions we make today will impact our daily quality of life for decades to come. I am concerned about our future and want to utilize my background and experience in making responsible, informed decisions to better our district.

We live in a wonderful place but need elected officials who are willing to approach each issue without prejudice and work together on behalf of the entire city…whose only agenda is putting community first. Therefore, I look forward to speaking with you during the upcoming campaign to discuss the issues that are important to you. Let’s keep Redondo Beach moving forward!

 As Our Council Member Rolf Will Work to: 

-Ensure “balanced” development by reducing density limits and requiring proper oversight so that projects are well-executed and reflect the true character of our community

-Modernize our public safety facilities and communications system and create a citywide security camera registry to better protect our homes and families

-Minimize traffic congestion by adding turning lanes, creating roundabouts and reducing city density limits

-Work to increase “true” park space and park utilizations while promoting “green” roofs as alternative open space 

-Promote economic growth with incentives for tech industry recruiting and capital improvements for local businesses 

-Provide proper budgetary oversight with focus on the needs of our seniors, veterans and families
