My Top 3 Priorities

  • I am the independent voice of reason on City Council, always voting for Alamedans’ best long-term interests. I work tirelessly to ensure Alameda serves all residents. When Alamedans need help, I listen and help solve their problems, big and small.
  • My decisions support our amazing island community: blue-green economy, conservation, parks, arts, fitness, business, smart development (prioritizing workforce & affordable housing and jobs), and reduce crime, homelessness and traffic.
  • I vote “no” when necessary to manage Alameda’s budget, not increase taxes (which increase displacement and gentrification), and ensure transparency and accountability. I am a dedicated, compassionate, hands-on leader who appreciates your input.
