Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Arriving in Livermore 42 years ago to work at the Lab, I fell in love with Livermore as a place to live, work, and raise a family. I care deeply about preserving and enhancing Livermore’s quality of life, which is rooted in our community character and shared values.

I have served on the Planning Commission and the City Council, currently as Vice Mayor. My leadership record demonstrates a thoughtful, collaborative, common-sense approach to getting things done — earning many community-wide endorsements.

One recent success is the universally celebrated Stockmen’s Park agreement, which greatly enhances our downtown with a large central park and cultural facilities, while honoring our western heritage and veterans. This successful community-wide collaboration also enables relocating up to 140 of much needed affordable housing units away from the downtown and offsets approximately $10M of the downtown site purchase price. Working together as a community really pays huge dividends!

By being a firm advocate of fiscal responsibility, I have helped to ensure ample funding for our Police and Fire Departments. I support open space and protecting the urban growth boundary. My professional experience spans scientific research, small business ownership and senior positions in major corporations.

Your vote would be an honor.
