You will find I have consistently voted in support of increasing services in Clearlake and the South County. My goal is to bring additional County services, more jobs, and to help make Clearlake the "Retail Hub of The County". I’ve supported positive economic development throughout the County, including community revitalization and abatement efforts. We must keep our precious way of life in mind while balancing growth with the needs of our community. 

Teamwork is so vital, working together and receiving your constructive comments help me to more effectively serve you on the Lake County Board of Supervisors.
