32-yr resident of Marina
2. Raised/Spent: less than $1,000.
3. Yes. (a) Build out our vacant lots & rent vacant stores, develop Ft. Ord and (b) sell all of Patton Park to individuals & developers, which will meet Marina housing needs for next 3 years or longer.
4.Not well-our streets have weeds growing up in them, many have no sidewalks or curbs/gutters. We need money for a library, high school & movie theater, family restaurants & better youth & senior activities.
5. Very good. Our public safety & public works departments are excellent.
6. Like spoiled brats-they need guidance, & communication, learn to compromise & change direction, put needs & wants of residents ahead of their own.
7. As a resident & businessman I am well versed in matters concerning the economic well-being of this city. We are entering into an exciting-crucial-stage of development & Marina "cries out" for leadership.

3. My interest is in a carefully planned, sustainable community, with limited development while providing meaningful new employment opportunities & economic stability to fund the services desired by the residents.
4. Current general plan process will provide an opportunity to adjust local priorities & residential community services. I'm an advocate for policies & programs to emphasize new parks, trees, neighborhood improvements.
5. Marina has been recognized as providing effective public safety. Worthy of review are community-policing efforts, bringing officers into increased positive contact with citizens & retention of officers.
6. My goal is to have the new council function as a team, creating a vision, goals & priorities to efficiently direct the city's resources. As mayor, I can obtain the needed buy-in & constructive interaction from all of the council.
7. I have experience in elective office, working with groups, community service & in public agency building. I have developed contacts which will improve my effectiveness. I'm known for my integrity & diligence.
