Filosofía política

Since 1996, and currently serving his Fifth term, Dave represents the Fifth District, comprised of Big Sur, Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, Monterey and Carmel Valley, which is known internationally for its tourism, dramatic coastline with unsurpassed views and its historic preservation.
 

This extensive background in local government has helped make Dave a successful leader in creating collaborative relationships among the county’s varied communities. Serving on many committees, Dave is the County’s representative locally, statewide and nationally for legislative advocacy, tourism, economic development and historic preservation. Dave provides Monterey County with an effective, articulate advocate who is regularly in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. to impress upon the legislators the importance of Monterey’s unique resources and its economic successes.
 

As a senior member on the Board of Supervisors, Dave realizes that it is only through cooperation and communication that difficult problems can be solved. Despite differing opinions and diverse backgrounds, common interests can be formed that will help protect and improve the quality of life in Monterey County and the State of California.
