Official candidate statement in ballot pamphlet and city website

Dear fellow Santa Monican,

I'm a 30-year resident of Santa Monica, a city I love.

As a former Mayor and City Councilmember, I've worked hard for more parks, recreational facilities and open spaces in our dense city.

I support a sustainable Santa Monica, with more solar energy, urban forest and planning for climate change.

I stand for a strong local economy, with community-serving small businesses and good jobs.

I am a renter and support renters’ rights and affordable housing.

And I support the arts, youth and quality education.

We face significant traffic, parking and livability challenges resulting from ill-conceived past development.

We can protect our neighborhoods, meet the needs of changing times, and keep our beach town feel and community scale – by promoting positive alternatives to the automobile, minimizing the need to drive and only approving right-sized, community-serving development.

I am strongly committed to resident participation and empowerment in city policy-making.

Santa Monica must be a city of opportunity and quality of life for all – families, youth and seniors, renters and homeowners, workers and small businesses.

My proven ability to work with diverse groups and individuals to build consensus can achieve these goals.

I ask for your vote.
