Our water resources are vital to our sustainability and quality of life. Having lived in this community for more than 20 years while, together with my wife, raising two children we have seen the challenges from the drought and have spoken with many of you on your concerns and hopes for our future generations. I will do my part to keep our water resources clean and sustainable.


My long career as a water civil engineer and as a water resources advisor for our community provides the valuable insights and experience that will get us there. This is my commitment to you.


Our goals are to: 1) save high-quality drinking water for people by reusing recycled water for public landscaping and industry instead of pumping it into the bay; 2) Improve recycling of paper, plastics, glass and metals for residents, businesses, schools, parks, and other public facilities; and 3) teach children to preserve the environment today and for future generations.


We need to save money for our ratepayers (each of you voting during this election). We will do so by embracing innovation while protecting the environment for future generations.
