Vote November 8th
It has been an honor to serve as your Del Mar City Council Member for the past four years including as your Mayor in 2021.
It has always been my aim to listen to residents’ concerns and pursue our shared goals.
Our council has pushed aside rancor of the past and worked together effectively to accomplish a great deal, especially over the past two years. Even so, there is much work still to be done. This is the catalyst for me seeking a second term.
Below are my top priorities for 2023 and beyond. I hope you will vote for me in November so that I can continue standing up for you and for our fine city of Del Mar.
