Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Cut Costs: You have to be a millionaire to go to Court, particularly if you need court documents which are hard to get and cost a fortune. I want to establish electronic records so documents cost pennies and are available remotely, by computer.
  • Fairness:The Marin Court should institute public accounting of all disqualifications of Judges based on the sworn affidavits saying that a Judge cannot provide a fair trial.The public is entitled to know which Judges are thought to be "unfair."
  • Transparency:The Court should stop the destruction of public records, i.e., all civil trial documents, after only 1 year.This defeats transparency of public records. All those before the Court should be treated equally, with no favor to any one side.

Mine is a family of immigrants. My grandmother fled the Russian Revolution to settle on a farm in upstate New York. She scrimped pennies and nickels for a very long time, finally saving $5 to hire an attorney to successfully fight unfair billing for farmers.

My father fled Ireland to escape political prosecution and died when I was very young. My widowed mother went into Mafia meetings wired for sound, to help the FBI and the Kefauver Committee fight corruption.

My family's commitment to fairness and the law resulted in me becoming a civil law attorney, practicing first in Louisiana and then in Marin after I married. My deceased husband and I raised our two sons here.

Community participation is an important part of my family life. My sons remember doing their homework in the hall outside of rooms where I was attending meetings.

To protect fair legal processes or public assets, I have served in a variety of elected, appointed, or volunteer positions, in a wide variety of civic and governmental organizations. Since 2002, I have served on various Citizen's Oversight Committees to renovate Marin Schools -- $500 million of public bonds for Tamalpais Union High School District, College of Marin, and elementary schools.

My most visible civic involvement was the 25-year fight to return one of our most valuable assets, the publicly-owned Marin General Hospital, first leased in 1985, to local control under the Marin Healthcare District. While an elected MHD Director (1986-1994), I drafted a significant amendment to California's Health and Safety code in 1992, regarding District Hospitals. The California legislature passed it unanimously as urgency legislation. In 2015, representing a Marin resident pro bono, I obtained a settlement affirming that MGH can never again be transferred without a public vote.

Fair, tough, and principled is in my DNA.

PS. I do like to have fun, and attend the New Orleans Jazz Festival as often as I can.
