My Top 3 Priorities

  • Pull back on development. I've seen the City advocate for and permit the overdevelopment of Fremont. As a result, the character and quality of life in our town is greatly compromised.
  • Fix the traffic issues. Cascading problems from overdevelopment include traffic problems and gridlock at a near-daily headache, crowded streets, and the feeling for many that the City does not care about their concerns.
  • Protect our hills and canyons. Encroaching development and industrialization threatens to destroy the irreplaceable natural resources that make Fremont one of the mst beautiful towns in the Bay Area.

Biography

I'm a 15 year resident of Niles, and I want your vote for the 4th District Fremont City Council seat up for election in November 2018. This will be the first district-based City Council elections in Fremont's history.

I am a founding member of PROTECT NILES, a grass roots community organization created in 2015 and dedicated to assuring responsible development in the district. PROTECT NILES successfully sued the City of Fremont to require an Environmental Impact Report on the Henkel Property/Niles Gateway development. Now that the EIR process is in place, we continue to push for the best outcome for our community.

As a founding member of Niles for Environmentally Safe Trains (NEST), I've worked to raise community awareness of the dangers posed by oil trains passing through our district, and to help marshall a wide response to the ACEforward plan which threatens to drastically increase freight train traffic through our town.

I've joined my neighbors who've been impacted by the encroachment of "monster homes" in an effort to stem the tide of McMansions and create citywide Designated Neighborhoods to ensure that remodels or teardowns conform with the character of the existing neighborhood.

I believe this election represents an opportunity before us to move into a new era in our city. I believe this is the time for people of conscience to take a stand and make it count.

I love my neighbors and my neighborhood - they matter to me too much to ignore. I love the 4th District, the most beautiful part of our city. I love Fremont, and I'd be honored to represent the people of the 4th District at City Hall.
