Bio and Goals


Brief biographical information, reasons for running for Atascadero City Council and goals.

I grew up in Atascadero, graduating from Atascadero High School, Cuesta College and Cal Poly with a teaching credential.  While at Cal Poly, I interned with the County of San Luis Obispo and was later hired as a LAFCo analyst where I worked for six years.  As a LAFCo analyst, I worked on Atascadero’s Incorporation Study and was in on the “ground floor” of Atascadero’s transition from unincorporated town to incorporated city.

I met my husband Al while attending Cuesta College, and we later married. I travelled the world, accompanying him during his career as an Army Intelligence Officer.  Four kids later when we returned to Atascadero, I began looking for a way to “give back” to my community.  I served on Atascadero’s Planning Commission for 10 years, chairing the commission several times.  I decided to run for a City Council seat in 2008, and I have now served 2 terms, including a year as the Mayor.

There are several reasons I’ll be running again for city council. First, economic development is an ongoing priority for Atascadero. We need to continue to attract business to our community so that we have places to shop, eat and stay. Second, we need to attract clean jobs for local residents; we need to become an “incubator” for creative and upcoming businesses, where they can grow.  Third, we need to retain the rural feel of Atascadero and our quality of life, planning for future needs while maintaining our character. 

In terms of concerns, water has become a huge issue for the North County, and I’m Atascadero’s water representative serving on several agencies and committees to establish North County water policy.  Atascadero’s groundwater basin is a geologically separate formation from the Paso Robles basin and I’ve worked hard to maintain local control and prevent Atascadero’s water from being forced under the jurisdiction of outside regional agencies and regulations.

Finally, the state continues to take money from local cities, such as our local gas tax money and using it to build trails and transit centers in other cities rather than repairing local roads.  There needs to be continual push back against the state and it’s wasteful and confiscatory regulations.

I want to continue to serve my city, working to promote economic development and to help shape the future into a prosperous and business-friendly community, providing jobs and quality of life for Atascadero’s residents.
