My Top 3 Priorities

  • Insure smooth leadership transition. Having served 40 years with Scotts Valley PD, I will be an asset in assisting our new City Manager & in the hiring of a new Police Chief to replace retiring Chief Weiss & other City transitions.
  • I will support Public Safety to ensure local programs are continued in our schools & community & that Scotts Valley remains the safest community in the County. I have experience/background to be an asset in this area.
  • Continue my work & service with local water commissions to protect scare water resources & continue work in projects to replenish groundwater basin.
