As a long-time Commissioner and Planning Commission Chair with a career in Business and Finance, and Masters Degrees in Strategic Management and Organizational Development, I have the education and professional experience needed to represent you on City Council. Building on recent progress we can bring long-term fiscal stability to San Leandro while attracting technology and advanced manufacturing businesses creating well-paying jobs.

As we implement the years of planning that began San Leandro’s transformation, we must work together to seize opportunities and tackle our challenges while shaping our future. Most importantly, we must fully fund public safety to reduce emergency response times and safeguard our neighborhoods.  I will continue to work with residents, community and business leaders, neighborhood associations, and elected officials to improve our schools, enhance retail and housing options throughout our neighborhoods, revitalize Bayfair, repair our streets, fix potholes and reduce traffic.  I choose to raise my family in San Leandro because it’s a community built on a culture and legacy of caring for others —values I want my daughters to learn first-hand.   Working together we can enhance the vital safety-net programs that assist local families who struggle to meet basic needs.

I respectfully ask for your vote.  Learn more at

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

On housing...San Leandro must focus on increasing affordable (by design) housing particularly near mass transit. We must ensure that we build within areas that are prime for redevelopment and encourage/attract developers with incentives that directly benefit the community.   Furthermore, any development at BART, in our Downtown, or along our transit corridors should focus on mixed-use developments with a work-force housing component.

We should attract developers who care about San Leandro’s character and can also focus on building high-income housing for business entrepreneurs.  Those who want to grow/expand their efforts at places like the San Leandro Technology Campus that provide advanced manufacturing and technology-oriented high paying jobs.


My core vision for San Leandro, and its residents, is a thriving city full of opportunity. I want long-term fiscal stability so we can fully fund public safety, safeguard our neighborhoods and reduce emergency response times, improve our schools, enhance retail and housing options throughout our neighborhoods, revitalize Bayfair, repair our streets, fix potholes and reduce traffic and enhance safety-net programs.

For the past five years, I have been active member of the Planning Commission with various projects for housing and jobs (the Village Marketplace, San Leandro Tech Campus, Marina Redevelopment, Marea Alta and the Bayfair Specific Plan).  In addition, I have been an active participant in the General Plan Update to include sustainability elements such as ‘street diets,’ increasing modes of transportation such as walkability, non-motorized vehicles, Transit Oriented Development and leveraging the 2013 Next Generation Workplace study to humanize the Industrial Area in San Leandro (less trucks, storage of stuff).
