­­For 40 years, I’ve worked to improve the quality of life in Hermosa Beach.  I’ve led the way on controlling development, maintaining Hermosa’s unique character, protecting our environment and helping make streets safer for residents and bicycles.

 

As a Sierra Club leader, I’ve helped stop an oversized hotel in Hermosa, kept Storm Drain pollution off beaches, extended the Bike Path and saved our Greenbelt from construction projects and being paved over for bike paths.

 

Professionally, I have experience working on large budgets.  This qualifies me to meet the needs of residents during this challenging economy.  And, I’m committed to full transparency!

My experience serving on the Chamber of Commerce, City Commissions, Red Cross, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and other organizations, has prepared me to work on a wide range of complex issues.
