Los Gatos is special.
I am a long-term resident: graduating from LGHS in 1975 and operating a local business.
Our community is vibrant and family oriented - a great place to live, work, and play.
I am running for Council to maintain the integrity of our Town.
In these challenging times, experienced leadership is needed.
As a Planning Commissioner since 2014, I have consistently opposed overdevelopment with decision-making based on our General Plan and Hillside Design Standards and Guidelines. Los Gatos has substantially preserved its small-town character despite outside efforts to capitalize on it. Proposed planning/expansion could easily overshadow the reasons that we want to live and stay here.
I have been a local business owner for over thirty years with a background in risk assessment and asset protection for families and businesses. Unprecedented challenges from a changing retail environment and the impact of COVID-19 threaten our economic vitality. Challenges from increased risk to wildfires threaten our homes and public safety. I have the professional background to meet these challenges.
As a Community Service Officer, and later as Team Leader for our Victim Services Unit, I have provided support to individuals who have experienced incidents requiring police assistance.
I am dedicated to keeping Los Gatos a safe and vibrant place to call home for residents and businesses.
I respectfully ask for your vote and together we can keep Los Gatos strong.
