My Top 3 Priorities

  • Preserving San Bruno Mountain, the gem of Brisbane and it's "backyard".
  • Making smart choices with High Speed Rail and Baylands development.
  • Maintain Brisbane's character and charm as a great but small city.

We live in a special town. Whether hiking up San Bruno Mountain, enjoying the Farmers Market or pulling together as a community to provide meals for seniors impacted by COVID, we have much to celebrate in this beautiful community. I love this town -- and would love to give back by serving on the Brisbane City Council.




I have a deep love for the beauty of Brisbane and our collective ‘backyard’ – San Bruno Mountain.  After learning of plans to allow the building of up to 30 new residences in the Lower Acres, a group of fellow residents formed Save the Acres, a non-political action group.  We are concerned with the safety of drilling into the fragile soil and displacing native wildlife. We fear for the safety of all residents in case of a wildfire. We also are concerned about additional traffic on all roads leading up to the development – especially the ‘hairpin turn’ at the corner of Glen Park and Humboldt.


I’d like us to keep a watchful eye on High Speed Rail plans and the impact on quality of life, as well as looking to initiatives that will revitalize our Downtown while supporting our local merchants.


My goal is bringing fresh perspective to the table and preserving the character of Brisbane and the natural backdrop of San Bruno mountain that we all cherish. I humbly seek your support in the upcoming election.
