Resident of Arcata since 1993

I served as a member of the Arcata City Council from 2004 to 2008 and was re-elected to a two year term in November of 2014 that will end in December of 2016.  I served on the City of Arcata Transportation Safety Committee, 1997 to 2004.     

I served on the Humboldt County Association of Governments Social Services Technical Advisory Committee from 2009 through 2014.

There are several community projects that I have advocated for including the City of Arcata downtown public restroom, Humboldt County Sunday bus service, the In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) worker’s contract with Humboldt County, and rehabilitation of my neighborhood park (Rotary Park).

I will work to improve the quality of life in Arcata by focusing on a premier destination dog park, a village style transitional housing project, continued upgrade of small neighborhood parks including the Greenview Park project, City of Arcata and Humboldt State University collaboration, late night county bus service on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights,  creation of satellite parking for downtown Arcata, addressing control and regulation of vacation rental units, and creation of a bicycle campground.

I support the completion of the Humboldt Bay Trail, County Transportation Sales Tax Measure U, and County Mobile Home Space Rent Stabilization Measure V.

In support of campaign finance reform, I will not be accepting donations.  I will not use lawn signs, endorsements, or advertisements.  Your vote is all I need.
