Twenty-four years ago I attended JSA summer school at Stanford. I was 14. In August, I returned to JSA’s Burd Institute at UCLA to talk about practicing law and running for office.

Jed is a committed civil servant, a knowledgeable pragmatist, and a supporter of the arts. I know he will provide the balance of vision, knowledge and common sense that Claremont needs to continue to thrive and grow into the future.


While serving with Jed on the Community and Human Services Commission, I was increasingly impressed by his
style of informed and transparent leadership. I then became the first to suggest that he run for City Council. Jed will serve as a positive and creative voice in Claremont’s future.
