I will have a keen focus and attention to detail on City services, financial stability and on policies that promote sound common sense approaches to community needs. I will provide leadership, experience and character,  and offer solutions to our issues by working with all council members and staff. Our awesome community and residents deserve the best from their elected council members and as an incumbant I am committed to continue to provide that.


I will focus on:

  • Using experienced business approaches with my best thinking and Common Sense decisions.
  • One of my priorities will be to continue to focus on Quality of Life in all neighborhoods; preserving parks and greenbelt areas, 
  • Honoring our community's  rich past, and valuable industries, such as the fishing and military community.
  • High service standards and striving to accomplish our very BEST for Monterey.
  • I will continue to have a balanced approach with no single interest group placed at the top.
  • My time on the council has certainly taughgt me to strive to use LONG TERM approaches and to provide clear policies that will continue to preserve our "cultural history", natural beauty and to help preserve  and sustain our resources and envirnoment.

                                        "Let's Make Monterey Even Better"!
