My Top 3 Priorities

  • I would like to slow growth down in the city of San Luis Obispo and make sure we help keep our identity and help maintane San Luis Obispo quaintness and charm.
  • Strong advocate for environmental support with emphasis on renewable energy and ways to save and conserve our water and precious resources.
  • Have San Luis Obispo slow down some of it's growth and move forward in a more respectful of it's residence home owners. SLOW DOWN SLO TOWN!

Experience

Biography

Over the past decade, San Luis Obispo has changed and is losing its quaintness and special charm.  We need to re-examine the direction San Luis Obispo is growing.  I appreciate and understand that the community needs more affordable housing and more head of household jobs.  However, sacrificing the lifestyle that attracts tourists and the reason our residents came here in the first place is the wrong approach.Instead we need to SLOW DOWN SLO TOWN and do a better job keeping San Luis Obispo the "Happiest Town In America".

We have all seen positive growth in San Luis Obispo that is beneficial to our community, but that's not always the case.  Sometimes this growth has brought projects in without appropriate infrastructure.  We need to build roads and bridges before these new projects are built to eliminate the traffic problems like we have today. We also need to be hyper sensitive to our challenging water and wastewater treatment challenges.

Change is inevitable and can be a positive thing, but we need to insure we're notdestroying the qulity of life in our townby over development and continue to create a townmany of us no longer relate to.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I'm a registered Democrat.  But I vote on issues and candidates who I feel will do the right thing and be the most benificial to our community and country.

Being a cancer survivor I understand that life is a challenge and ever day is a gift.  I feel it's very important to help our community and try to do the right thing to improve the life and health of our city and community.  Service is very important to me and that's what drove me to start a non-profit to help people challenged by cancer by using the positive energy of surfing.  Surfing for Hope Foundation, surfingforhope.org, has raised more than $250,000 in 6 years to help support free Cancer Resource Centers in our area. 

"Service is the price we pay for our room on earth".
