Why I’m running

After joining the Community and Human Services Commission, I took inventory of my surroundings and realized that, with the opening of two vacancies on the city council, Claremont is ripe for the passing of the torch to a new generation of leadership. Leadership is not just about checklists of policies. It’s about the process by which we analyze challenges and then offer solutions. Leadership is about how we communicate. Leadership is about how we listen and learn.

Leadership is not just about checklists of policies. It’s about the process by which we analyze challenges and then offer solutions. Leadership is about how we communicate. Leadership is about how we listen and learn.

We as citizens must look at the greatest challenges confronting our world and act locally to address them. I want to bring energy and focus to critical issues that need leadership: homelessness, senior citizens, and sustainability. These are the issues that I have had the greatest opportunity to impact as Commissioner, and with your support, I can provide an enthusiastic voice to champion these causes.

Where I stand on the issues:
