Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve and to continue doing important and satisfying work in Saratoga's interest. Serving this active, engaged community that I love, is a joy.
RUNNING FOR LOVE : Yes, I am running again for LOVE...the love for Saratoga, for our community and to continue protecting, promoting Saratoga’s interests. Serving these past few years as your councilmember, I have taken it as a very important responsibility based on the trust bestowed by you upon me.
WORKING HARD FOR SARATOGA
I have worked hard for Saratoga’s challenges such as crime water and more. I may not have the answers, for complex challenges as our water rates or residential break-ins, but I have never hesitated to jump in and explore options collaboratively with our citizens and stake holders.
COMMUNICATING, CONNECTING & COLLABORATING
I truly believe that Saratogans are communicating, connecting and collaborating so much more today, as we have joined hands in solving our community's challenge. Case in point; so many emails by Saratogans directed to CPUC have helped reject rate increases. While many new neighborhood block parties stemming from new Neighborhood Safety Watch programs are helping connect neighbors. We are a socially active and aware community with established connections between our neighbors.
PRIORITIES ON THE CITY COUNCIL
My top priorities are to enhance Saratoga's quality of life and nurture a thriving family oriented community; identify the top community challenges such as crime water and work hard to address and resolve them. We are blessed to live in a very unique community. Saratoga has certainly thrived over the years based upon prudent choices. We will continue to do so.
SARATOGA's INTERESTS FIRST #SaratogaFirst
As your representative on the City Council, I will continue to be the voice for all, and an advocate for our city to help improve our quality of life. I will fiercely protect and serve the interest of our families, our children, and our seniors. I will continue being an involved, committed, dedicated and vigilant advocate of every resident of Saratoga. I love Saratoga and I have found an inner fulfillment in bringing my energy towards Saratoga causes; towards the good of this fantastic community we live in.
Thank you for the privilege of representing you.
I humbly seek your endorsement and will be honored to have it. Your endorsement will be proudly displayed on our campaign endorsement page here.
