Relevant Experience

My work experience, together with my volunteer experience, make me uniquely qualified to serve on the Pinole City Council.

  • As a land use planner for a local jurisdiction for over 25 years, I deal with issues very relevant to those facing the City of Pinole, including:
  • Infrastructure (streets, bike lanes, trails, bridges, sidewalks, storm drains…) development, maintenance and finance
  • Commercial and housing development, including transit oriented development and smart growth;
  • Climate Change issues;
  • Emergency Operation Center, including natural disaster preparation, resiliency planning  and disaster recovery issues;
  • Budgeting;
  • Regional planning, and
  • Land use law.

All of my work experience is very relevant for serving on the City Council.

My volunteer experience includes:

  • Pinole Planning Commission for almost 18 years;
  • Citizens Bond Oversight Board for six (not all consecutive) years;
  • Pinole Seals (20 years);
  • Pinole Hercules Little League (Challenger Division Player Agent 10 years);
  • Special Olympics – 20 years (10 years as a coach);
  • Local Pinole Schools, including communications coordinator, site council, and reconstruction committees.

All of my volunteer experience is very relevant to serving on the City Council.
