Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Halt additional large-scale office development unless a solution to reduce traffic congestion can first be implemented.
  • Work to reduce afternoon vehicle gridlock on the Transportation Master Plan Outreach and Oversight Committee that I co-chair.
  • Protect our neighborhood from flooding impacts by continuing my work on the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority.

Biografía

My grandparents purchased their Menlo Park home in the 1950s. In 1996, my husband and I purchased our home in Menlo Park. I’ve been honored to serve on City Council since 2010 and as mayor in 2012 and 2017.

I have had my own law practice in San Mateo County for over twenty years. I also have volunteered with community organizations throughout San Mateo County for over twenty years. I currently serve on the boards of BAWSCA, the Service League, and the advisory board of CORA: Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse.  I was elected President for two consecutive years by fellow Commissioners while serving on the San Mateo County Commission on the Status of Women, where I served for eight years.

In Menlo Park, I have served on the Community Mediation Services Committee, Housing Commission and Planning Commission. I was elected to Menlo Park City Council in 2010.

I am running for re-election to the Menlo Park City Council to continue focusing on transportation solutions, affordable housing, environmental sustainability and economic vibrancy for our small businesses.

I appreciate all the support and encouragement I have received from community members. With so many important decisions coming before council, residents believe qualifications and a good track record really do matter.

There are many changes coming to Menlo Park. For the first time, Menlo Park will have district elections. I have been elected twice in citywide elections and will continue to keep all residents in mind.

As a strong advocate for affordable housing and transportation improvements, I will continue to work closely with residents and other stakeholders as we address growth in Menlo Park and the surrounding areas.

I serve as the Co-Chair of the Transportation Master Plan Outreach and Oversight Committee and am committed to implementing an effective transportation plan that benefits the entire city. I'm also a strong advocate for safe routes to school and will work to prioritize and implement more bicycle infrastructure improvements.

I serve on the Belle Haven Library Advisory Committee and have been working with community members to make sure that we have a state of the art library system that serves all residents.

I serve on the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority and will continue working to protect our neighborhoods from flooding impacts.

I have served on the Dumbarton Rail Corridor Policy Advisory Committee, and will continue to advocate for reducing afternoon vehicle gridlock by demanding that a world-class commuter rail system to the East Bay is a requirement for any large-scale development near the rail corridor.

Working collaboratively with my fellow councilmembers, I’m proud to have delivered a balanced budget every year that I’ve served on city council, while maintaining a AAA Bond rating for Menlo Park.

In 2017, as Mayor of Menlo Park, I reaffirmed that Menlo Park will honor the Paris Climate Accord along with over 400 other cities across our great nation. I will continue working with our city commissions and local environmental groups to advance our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Also while mayor, I was honored to work with concerned residents to pass an ordinance making Menlo Park a Safe City.
