We can continue to protect our treasured quality of life and the unique character of our five communities through fiscal prudence, environmental stewardship, and fair and equitable application of the General Plan. As a former Encinitas Fire Chief and current Councilmember, I have served you for 35 years, working to build a safe, beautiful, and sustainable community. I have voted for a balanced budget with performance measurements, pension reform, Encinitas Community Park for our families, better beaches, increased public safety, responsible growth, clean and reliable water, and reduced traffic impacts in our neighborhoods.
Over the last decade, I have served on many community regional boards including: San Dieguito and Olivenhain Water Districts, San Diego County Water Authority, San Diego North Economic Development Council, and San Diego Association of Governments. The San Diego Taxpayers Association's
Golden Watchdog Award" recognized my efforts in saving millions in taxpayer dollars. The Encinitas Chamber of Commerce honored me as a "Community Hero" and the New Encinitas Network named me a "Top 25 Leader in the Past 25 Years."
Please join Encinitas citizens, community and regional leaders in supporting my candidacy, including former Encinitas Mayors James Bond, Rick Shea, Anne Omsted, along with the Deputy Sheriff's Association and the Encinitas Firefighters Association.
