Biografía

I've been an Alameda resident for 25 years, and have operated my business in Alameda for 24 years. Throughout that time I've been active in many community organizations including the Alameda Kiwanis Club, the Chamber of Commerce, the Park Street Business Association, and the Alameda Elks Lodge. My wife and I have supported of many non-profits in town, and recently I lead the effort to re-start the Alameda Recreation and Parks Summer Baseball Program (the T-Shirt League).

Filosofía política

The role of the Treasurer is to provide accurate, unbiased information to the citizens, City Staff, and other elected officials so we as a community can make the best-informed decisions possible. I don't get involved in the political side of issues for two reasons: first, it's important that people who are relying on accurate financial information know that what I present is not slanted toward a political agenda. And second, my position does not have voting power when it comes to City policy. The vast majority of the time I am not asked to present policy ideas, but rather to explain the financial ramifications of both sides of a proposed idea. When asked for policy ideas, as in the case of the Pension Task Force for example, I present not only what I think possible solutions might be but also what solutions other cities have chosen when faced with similar issues. I have no political aspirations, my goal is to provide the best information possible to enable the City to be successful in the long-run.
