In these challenging times, we need leaders with experience, vision, and
solutions to represent our residents on City Council. I devoted my career to better our neighborhoods, while fighting for government transparency and fiscal responsibility. That’s why I refuse to accept special interest contributions of any kind -- not developers, not businesses, not unions, and not PACs.
I have served our community over the last 5 years as Planning Commissioner and currently serve on the El Camino Real Citizens’ Advisory Committee and the Chief of Police Advisory Committee. I fought for more affordable housing, measures to reduce traffic congestion, led the effort to get 43 extra affordable housing units in the Gateway Crossings project, and helped to reclaim Franklin Street.
To prepare students for a 21st Century economy, I decided to teach algebra and climate change science. I co-founded and coach the Wilcox High Robotics Team. As a University of Calif certified Master Gardener, I teach people how to garden sustainably at the Eddie Souza Community Garden.
As councilmember, I will work hard to create places in the City where residents can spend their dining and entertainment dollars rather than going to neighboring cities.
With BS and MS degrees from MIT, I will push to use technology to make City Hall more efficient and responsive. I opposed Measure J, will hold the 49ers accountable, and will continue to uphold those standards in City Council.
