When first elected to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, I promised to represent taxpayers, hold government accountable, reduce traffic and improve public safety. I have kept my promises.
I took action to balance an out of control budget, implemented responsible spending practices, reduced pension and retiree liabilities, doubled emergency reserves and upgraded the County’s bond rating –– without raising taxes.
Transportation - I’ve made the widening and safety of Highway 4, the Highway 4 Bypass and the Caldecott tunnel expansion all top priorities. I continue to lead safety efforts on Vasco Road, including a concrete barrier –– reducing fatalities to zero.
Public Safety - I continue to fight to improve law enforcement and fire protection in order to protect citizens and property. Public safety remains a high priority and is key to our quality of life.
Urban Limit Line - As a co-author of the county’s Urban Limit Line, I am protecting open spaces and controlling sprawl.
Delta – As a leader of the Delta County Coalition I continue to fight to protect our Delta from all threats and outside interests.
I’m proud to have bi-partisan support and endorsements from Antioch, Brentwood and Oakley leaders, public safety, and elected and community members throughout Contra Costa County, the region and the state.
Contra Costa County has always been my home. I live in Discovery Bay with my husband David, who is a firefighter, and our daughter Mariah.
I lead with honesty and integrity and always put the public’s interest first. I'd be honored to continue to serve you.
