Current Community Challenges

What we are up against

The number of people occupying Coronado hotel rooms has gone down significantly since March of 2020 and this will have a significant impact on Coronado’s budget. I am running for the City Council to do my part in providing experience, wisdom, and a sense of history/institutional memory for our city.

We are going to face difficult decisions and challenges in the months ahead. I am ready to help the City Council to face these challenges intelligently and directly.

My Pledge

“I will look for ways to limit population density in Coronado.”

“I will do my best to reach out to our South Bay neighbors to show them that Coronado cares about being a good neighbor.”

“I will work hard to let our public employees, especially our Police Officers and Fire Fighters, know that their work is truly valued by the residents of Coronado and I will not take their commitment to our city and their work for granted.”

“I will support policies that prioritize the peace and quiet of our neighborhoods. I will seek out ways to maintain the tranquility and serenity that so many of our residents cherish.”

“I will support keeping Coronado a pleasant place to walk, bike, jog (you will never actually see me jogging but I’ll support it), and recreate in.”

“I will look for balance between supporting the needs of our residents while also supporting the needs of our local businesses.”

“I am committed to maintaining a high level of City services for our residents.”

“I will protect our parks and beaches, as well as the medians on Orange Ave.” 

“I will continue to support Coronado’s tradition of maintaining its streets and sidewalks at a high level.”

Plumeria Project

When I drive up and down the Silver Strand, I have seen some scattered spots of weeds and barren areas. I would like to see the City Council consider adding some plumeria plantings in these unused or barren parts of the medians of the Silver Strand. This would help to beautify these scrappy spots with a low maintenance plant that is drought tolerant. 

Plumeria grow in a slow, methodical way and would not cause problems to the city or to motorists. As they grow, they could be easily pruned and if desired, their cuttings could be taken and replanted in other areas along the Silver Strand, or throughout the City. The flowers of plumeria plants can also be wonderfully fragrant and over the span of 10-20 years, we could have a uniquely powerful, tropical upgrade to the centerline of the Silver Strand.
