Caring for Today … Preparing for Tomorrow
I am proud to be the only candidate for Atherton City Council endorsed by the
.Equally important, I have been endorsed by many former mayors, current residents, and the localnewspapers. These endorsements demonstrate confidence in my ability to
bring a newperspective to the council
. They also reflect a deep concern about the way the council currentlyworks. Too much time and money has been spent on in-fighting, lawsuits and micromanagement.I want to help our Town move forward.The road ahead will not be easy. The new Council will face several challenges which will have alasting impact on our Town’s finances:1.
Hire a new City Attorney.2.
Address the $1,000,000 lawsuit filed by a former Finance Director.3.
Work with the San Mateo County Investment Pool to recover asmuch as possible of the $500,000 we lost in the Lehman Brothers collapse.4.
Fix the Business License Fee and refund those overcharged.5.
Pay the unfunded pension liabilities from the General Fund.The only way we will overcome those and other challenges is if we all
, and all
. The Council must become the forum where anyone who wants to be heard can beheard. We don’t have to agree on every issue, but we have to agree to listen, to be open-minded,and to be civil.Here is a great way you can help.
