Why are you running?
As a long-time Coastside resident I am extremely passionate about local community service, and believe in the Civic Duty of service owed to the Coastal community where I grew-up, was raised, and still live today.
Top 3 priorities if elected:1. Environmental Care - I was inspired to run for GSD director after finding out that Heal the Bay ranked GSD area coastal beaches with an: “F”, with failing grades among the worst in California for Bactria levels. As a board member I will insure keeping our beaches clean is a top priority.
2. Community Cooperation - Upon further examination I saw signs of a dysfunctional GSD board causing the coastal eco-system true harm because of their hostility towards sister governing agencies and community citizens. As a GSD board member I will efficiently cooperate with all members of our coastal community.
3. Fiscal Constraint - Lastly, constraining unnecessary administrative systems while focusing any expenditures on capital improvements to our antiquated sewer system will be a top priority if elected to the GSD board.
