My Top 3 Priorities

  • Alamedans are rightfully frustrated with the level of congestion on our roads and in the tube. If re-elected, my top priority will be to get the long-stalled "Broadway-Jackson" project back on track, so as to improve traffic flow out of the tube.
  • As part of the effort to get the long-stalled "Broadway-Jackson" back on track, introduce a soft-moratorium of major residential development projects, meaning we don't move forward until credible movement on "Broadway-Jackson" occurs first.
  • We are in the midst of a rent crisis, and with the March 2016 ordinance that Measure L1 would affirm, we have stopped excessive rent increases. Let's implement programs that help renters become first-time home-owners as well.



I am 50 years old and, for much of those years, I have had the pleasure of residing in Alameda.  I grew up in the City of Alameda, in the part of town we call the "West End," in a neighborhood right next to the now closed military base.  

As a West Ender, I attended Paden Elementary, Chipman Middle School, and Encinal High.  I even served as Senior Class and School President of Encinal High School.  As EHS' school president in Spring 1984, I made sure our school leadership worked with a fellow student in bringing the first jet to Encinal High School -- so I've been contributing to our community for many years, even prior to my invovlement in local government.

Prior to serving on Council, I served on what was then called the Alameda Re-use and Redevelopment Authority (which oversaw the naval base closure process).  I also served on Alameda's Economic Development Commission, and the City of Alameda's Fiscal Sustainability Committee, as well as Caltran's District 4 Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee.  So, I have had the breadth of experience that prepared me well to serve as a councilmember.

Among many issues facing local residents, in the past four years I've focused on transit and traffic-related matters, sponsoring an effort to plan Alameda's transit services from new development in a coordinated and comprehensive manner.  I've also focused on economic development, particularly looking at ways to leverage local assets in an effort to improve the city's ability to attract visitors, including business travelers, persons from outside visiting family and friends in Alameda, and tourists. Over the past four years, I am very proud to have held regular in-person office hours at local coffee shops and the Alameda Farmers' Market.

Other items that have aided me in serving on City Council: I have a Master's degree in City and Regional Planning from UC Berkeley, where I also earned my Bachelor's degree in US History.  I am a Senior Associate\Urban Planner with an economic development consulting company in Walnut Creek called Applied Development Economics.
