I would like to announce my candidacy for the Imperial Beach City Council.
I was raised in Imperial Beach, attended Oneonta Elementary, Mar Vista Middle and Mar Vista High School, and own a home blocks away from the house where I was raised. My husband Kevin and I are happily raising our two beautiful children in this great little beach community of Imperial Beach.
After working in the real estate and mortgage field for several years I chose to set aside my career to focus on raising our two young children. I have devoted the last decade to serving, leading, mentoring and educating young lives.
Both Kevin and I have a passion for philanthropic work, investing in the raising up of young leaders through active church youth ministry, and are active advocates for healthy living from the beaches to the little league.
I represent diversity and have a fresh outlook that is sure to bring a new awareness to our young families within the city. My desire is to inspire youth to become civically involved for the betterment of our neighborhoods while respecting and honoring our seasoned residents. I am invested in our community by opening up my home to the local youth, where there’s always a warm meal, a hug and a good conversation waiting for them.
I believe in safeguarding our children’s future by bringing our families together through common values, interests, protection and educational opportunities.
I believe in smart growth with special regard for our entrepreneurs and small businesses. I am committed to preserving our unique position as a small coastal jewel and to preserving the tranquility of our city while continuing to invest in improvements for the four corners of our community.
Clean water is a high priority for this “surfer widow.” Growing up on the beach I understand how important it is that we keep fighting to ensure that our beaches are free from sewage and pollution.
I aspire to bolster communication between the citizens of Imperial Beach and our public safety leaders. By implementing new and relevant methods of communication we can increase public involvement and create a culture of unity.
I am a mother, wife, homeowner and long-time resident invested in this city. I am ready to do my part to improve this amazing foundation. I will work together with the families of Imperial Beach to make the City Council of Imperial Beach a model for smart, responsive growth.
Thank you for your support and please feel free to contact me.
