“I was honored to serve as Mayor of Seaside for 6 years, and I could not be more proud of what we accomplished together.  The Mayor and Council worked very well together back then – we were a team, and I look forward to being a part of that team again. 

Together, we successfully brought economic opportunity to Seaside with a City Center, a renovated Auto Mall, restaurants, hotels, grocery stores and shopping centers – critical projects that provided much needed jobs.    

But we did much more than that.  We were able to bring affordable housing to Seaside, so the residents of this area could afford to live and work in our City. 

We were also committed to practicing good fiscal policies.  We balanced budgets in tough economic times, implemented fiscal health and wellness policies, and moved to a two year budgeting cycle that, with careful management, will bear fruit.

These policies have eroded under the current leadership! The budget does not address a $1.2 million shortfall that places the burden on employee concessions. Critical city services such as public safety have been left unaddressed.  And City policy has not been carried out as directed by the Council – both at the Water JPA and at FOR A.  This damages the credibility of our City.

When elected, I will provide the effective leadership to help get our City back on track.  I will always listen and I will keep Seaside First!  I would be honored to receive your vote.”
