As Supervisor, I’ll bring a lifetime of work experience—as a civil servant, educator, husband, and father of a son in our public school system—to the job. Being a true representative in city government will be my only job. I will work for my constituents and their families, NOT SPECIAL INTERESTS.
I will Prioritize ACCOUNTABILITY:
Create formal District-wide councils with monthly meetings.
Keep my office open, transparent, and RESPONSIVE.
Help Maintain our Neighborhoods (Housing and Businesses):
Stop City Hall’s sell-out of our neighborhood. In the past 6 years, 1/3 of our neighbors have left town and neighborhood businesses have shut down. Shuttered storefronts, homes sold/rented/sold again. This destabilization should end.
Legislate a vacancy tax, a tax on out-of-town ownership, true disclosures on real estate transactions.
Do everything I can to preserve local businesses and keep neighborhoods intact.
Work to Fix our broken Transportation system:
Put back our stolen train stops and buses.
Protect public roads and sidewalks from overuse by ride-shares, luxury buses, electric bikes and scooters, wasteful city projects.
Protect our Neighborhoods:
Oppose wasteful, massive, ugly development projects that feed developer greed and wreck Neighborhood aesthetics.
Oppose corporate marijuana dispensaries.
Protect our Coastal Zone.

The neighborhood (and twitterverse) is talking about this election. I'll post links to position papers I write here. I aim is to inform, entertain, and let people know where I stand on important local issues. I'll try to keep it real and concise. Enjoy.
Thanks to my early donors and endorsers. I'm humbled by your faith in me and your kind words.
