Biography

Listen to the VOTERS!  No housing allowed on the Baylands.

SAVE Lives - not money!  Make our streets safer, and do more effective traffic enforcement to STOP speeders, and those in too big a hurry to stop for signs, and pedestrians.

Build really affordable housing, not just market rate housing labled as affordable or subsidized.  

Clean up TOXIC pollutants:  soil, water, and air wherever they exist in town.  And keep the public informed on progress.

Don't accept excuses for failure to update zoning maps, and the General Plan.  Brisbane has more than adequate financial reserves now.

Demand more public review and open processes before tax proposals are presented which look good, but may not be best for Brisbane.

Work to eliminate Mount Brisbane!  It should never have been allowed to begin with.

 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Doing what is right should take precidence over doing what it popular, except when the will of the people is known in advance, as it was with Term Limit Extensions.  I will honor the voter's choices from the start, not oppose them as others have, and only reluctantly agree aftern being beaten by a referendum.

Working together as a team is important to any success, yet going along just to get along is not leadership.  Compromise is meant for things that are not critical, like what color to paint City Hall, or what type of trees to install at the park.  When it comes to character issues, and core values, compromise needs to be careful to NOT sell out our town.  If together (we the voters) we were to decide to sell off a piece of the Baylands for example, that is one thing, but I am not selling out Brisbane by agreeing to housing there while that property is part of Brisbane.
