The Election is November 4th, 2014 for the Monterey City Council.
Here are a few of the issues and challenges ahead:
As I watch the current issues emerging in Monterey, I see much hard work ahead. I know from speaking with many of you, as well as friends, neighbors and family, there are concerns about some of the directions the current Council is taking. People are concerned and want things done, faster, but they do not want proposed changes to negatively impact our quality of life and community.
City leaders do not always make the best and most informed decisions, nor do they do so with the entire community in mind. Leadership is needed now more than ever. We need to pay attention to all neighborhoods, residents and businesses. Our community expects and deserve high levels of service from their employees and elected officials. My promise is to be a tireless community representative and a council member that is approachable, engaged and effective!
Bold leadership requires an unwavering belief in a core set of service values.
I believe in:
We have challenges ahead in Monterey and our financial stability and path to economic recovery is instrumental to why I am running. We must be exceptional and we must be the leaders among cities in California when it comes to how we get things done.
I am always happy to speak with community and business members and I look forward to your call. If you have any questions regarding my campaign or a specific issue, feel free to Contact me or call (831) 601-5013.
