No voice should ever be ignored, or idea overlooked and all solutions must be considered. The problems facing our City require new ideas and innovation. As your Council member, I will listen to your ideas and will be thoroughly educated in order to contribute and represent you. I will also continue to assist members and act as an advocate for your interests. As my Father used to say knowledge is power! It does take effective dialogue in the pursuit to find answers to reach consensus. We can solve problems by diving into the problems and not delay action. Setting clear council policy and providing staff direction to provide the best service for THE BEST COMMUNITY anywhere is essential.
Here is a short list of what I see are at the forefront and will be vital to work on in our community:
Local community involvement is the truest form of direct democracy there is. Local grassroots community involvement and participation in city decisions is a hallmark of the way it's done in Monterey. Healthy and transparent government must always be demonstrated to ensure public trust and partnerships in our community. Community involvement and participation will continue to help hold local government accountable.
