My Top 3 Priorities

  • Revitalizing downtown -- reopening the Novato Theater, renovating the old train depot, and launching free wifi
  • Public safety -- elevating police salaries to 100% competitive level
  • Improving transit -- ensuring convenient access to SMART train stations, encouraging alternatives like ride-sharing

For 33 years, I've been solving communications problems for global business, higher education, startups, and nonprofits. I started as a writer for a small internal communications department. A few years later, I was writing speeches for the CEO. In the decades that followed, I grew my skills as a consultant who could design, develop, and deploy communications programs for any kind of organization. My experience in technology, entertainment, education, and financial services made me popular with Bay Area companies seeking answers to thorny problems. My training in organizational development gave me the ability to find consensus and build solutions that every stakeholder endorsed.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

It's easy to call me a lefty liberal, because I am. But more important today is my commitment to the Gandhi admonition:  "Be the change that you wish to see in the world." My style is light and generous; kindness is crucial, and smiling is a good reaction to the unexpected. But I don't shy away from confronting problems. I believe in action. I believe in what has come to be called "design thinking": iterating solutions until we get things as ideal as possible.

— October 20, 2017 Campaign.

This was from the League of Women Voters of Marin's candidate forum. Novato needs a can-do attitude on city council, not another term of delay from my 23-year-incumbent opponent.
