I am running for re-election to the Menlo Park City Council to continue focusing on transportation solutions, affordable housing, environmental sustainability and economic vibrancy for our small businesses.

I appreciate all the support and encouragement I have received from community members. With so many important decisions coming before council, residents believe qualifications and a good track record really do matter.

There are many changes coming to Menlo Park. For the first time, Menlo Park will have district elections. I have been elected twice in citywide elections and will continue to keep all residents in mind.

As a strong advocate for affordable housing and transportation improvements, I will continue to work closely with residents and other stakeholders as we address growth in Menlo Park and the surrounding areas.

I serve as the Co-Chair of the Transportation Master Plan Outreach and Oversight Committee and am committed to implementing an effective transportation plan that benefits the entire city. I'm also a strong advocate for safe routes to school and will work to prioritize and implement more bicycle infrastructure improvements.

I serve on the Belle Haven Library Advisory Committee and have been working with community members to make sure that we have a state of the art library system that serves all residents.

I serve on the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority and will continue working to protect our neighborhoods from flooding impacts.

I have served on the Dumbarton Rail Corridor Policy Advisory Committee, and will continue to advocate for reducing afternoon vehicle gridlock by demanding that a world-class commuter rail system to the East Bay is a requirement for any large-scale development near the rail corridor.

Working collaboratively with my fellow councilmembers, I’m proud to have delivered a balanced budget every year that I’ve served on city council, while maintaining a AAA Bond rating for Menlo Park.

In 2017, as Mayor of Menlo Park, I reaffirmed that Menlo Park will honor the Paris Climate Accord along with over 400 other cities across our great nation. I will continue working with our city commissions and local environmental groups to advance our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Also while mayor, I was honored to work with concerned residents to pass an ordinance making Menlo Park a Safe City.
