Thank you all for giving me the honor of representing you once again as a member of the Pleasanton City Council. Now that the campaign is over, I am excited to get back to work to get the things done that matter to us. I look forward to hearing from you, and please know my door is always open.
Pleasanton City Councilmember
Experience Matters--For nearly 20 years, I have worked tirelessly on behalf of Pleasanton residents to preserve our amazing quality of life. Being rated #4 in the nation as of one of the best places to live does not happen by accident, and I believe that through the years, I have heard you and tried my best to faithfully represent you.
Supporting a Unique and Vibrant Downtown--One of the hallmarks of this community is its downtown. I will continue my work to ensure a robust downtown atmosphere by:
encouraging a rich variety of local businesses and entrepreneurs
evaluating a location for a civic center and library
enhancing downtown parks, as well as others
Managing Growth--As my voting record demonstrates, I do not support unmitigated growth, and I believe that growing a community requires careful and thoughtful management. I am fully committed to managing the growth of this community in a way that preserves our quality of life. Governing growth also means collaborating with our schools to see that they are delivering the highest quality public education for our student population; it also means working to conserve our precious resources, like water. I believe a have proven track record on behalf of all these important issues, from asking for more ideas with fewer homes regarding the development of East Pleasanton, partnering with our schools to maximize their deliverables during tough economic times, and voting in favor of bringing more recycled water to our parks and business developments.
Safe Streets and Neighborhoods--Pleasanton is one of the safest cities in California, and I intend to keep it that way. Everyone benefits from safe streets--our seniors deserve it; our kids deserve it, and so do we. Believing that rapid response to the smaller problems, coupled with community outreach, helps to prevent bigger problems from occurring, I support our public safety officers getting what they need to get the job done right.
