My Top 3 Priorities

  • Actively support the Sonoma West Medical center hospital and its life saving emergency room by a) providing the hospital with free water and sewage and b) by collaborating with the hospital to seek county, state and federal fundiing and programs.
  • Walk the talk of a green Sebastopol by purchasing, for our city fleet, zero emission electric vehicles for use in our city parks, as well as implementing bike trails.
  • Develop and implement legislative and zoning adjustments to encourage attainably priced modest sized green housing such as auxiliary units.
