BRINGING VOICES

TOGETHER

I am running for Los Gatos Town Council because I believe this is an extraordinary community whose past must be treasured and whose future can be protected with thoughtful decision-making. 
 
I have been actively involved in the Los Gatos community for close to 30 years – as the owner of Domus, as an attorney, as a Planning Commissioner, and as a volunteer with numerous schools and nonprofit organizations. The time is right for me to use my experience and skills to help the Los Gatos government make decisions on the serious issues that will challenge us in the next four years.
 
We must bring our voices together to develop the best strategies and solutions for our town. It is only by sharing our perspectives and finding common ground that we can find positive results that protect and improve our quality of life.
