I welcome the opportunity to serve on the City Council to protect our quality of life and help solve future challenges that may arise to Keep RPV Strong! I would like to continue to serve in a leadership role on your behalf.
I have a 30 year proven record of working to maintain the semi-rural character of our city. I am particularly proud to be a co-author, with a Council subcommittee of former Mayors John McTaggart, and Robert Ryan, of the RPV View Protection Ordinance, 1989 (Proposition M) that has been foundational to maintaining our city's character.
Currently, I am serving my 8th year as a Planning Commissioner, including as past Chairman. I work diligently to enforce the goals of our city's general plan, development codes and neighborhood compatibility guidelines.
Based on my education and professional experience, I understand the critical importance of maintaining local control of zoning and land use decisions.
If elected, my top priorities are:
- Maintain our fiscal strength
- Preserve our quality of life
- Keep zoning decisions local
- Improve our infrastructure
- Support our business community
- Enhance our fire safety readiness
I am committed to continue working for our residents to maintain our quality of life and the character of our extraordinary city.
