Position Papers
Water availability will be one of our County's most important issues for some time to come. We need a First District Supervisor who will provide leadership in bringing all the competing interests to the table and developing solutions that everyone can buy into. I will bring integrity, creativity, and diplomacy to this difficult issue.
County Inefficiency
Everyone knows that our County government is broke, but the bigger problem is that our County government is broken.
Public Participation
The First District needs a Supervisor who will open up County government to greater public involvement. The public has a difficult time simply following the actions of County government, let alone influencing them. And the First District has endured vacancies on key boards and commissions for months and years.
