My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fiscal Responsibility- Prioritize a balanced city budget with prudent oversight of revenues and expenses; partner with the business community; celebrate and expand citizen volunteers; and seek increased revenues while respecting community values.
  • Infrastructure- Complete city wide plan for street and sidewalk repair while advocating for pedestrian and cyclist safety. Work to improve vibrancy of the downtown attracting new business to our commercial areas.
  • Environmental- I would like to see PG take a leadership role in environmental concerns and work with our committed volunteer organizations. We need to protect our ecologically sensitive and diverse areas of our coastal trail for future generations.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am running for city council because I care deeply about our Pacific Grove community.   I support a balanced budget with sufficient revenues; repair of our streets and park improvements; enhancing the vibrancy of our downtown; and protection of our ecologically sensitive environment. I believe in a partnership between residents and local government and am willing to listen to all concerned citizens. My background in System Engineering allows me to look at all aspects of an issue and weigh the pros and cons as well as the unintended consequences.
