OUR SHARED GOAL
A THRIVING AND RESILIENT COMMUNITY
As a lifelong public servant and Felton resident, I’m running for 5th District Supervisor because, like you, I’ve lived through the challenges of the last few years: the pandemic, CZU fire, winter storms. The 5th District is where I’m raising my children, and I want them to grow up in a thriving, resilient community. It’s also where I’ve witnessed county government fall short in helping to rebuild lost homes, and the failing of basic infrastructure like roads, power, broadband, and water. I want to change that - to be a strong voice for the 5th District to accelerate recovery, strengthen resilience, and represent all voices. We deserve better.
I’ve spent my career in public service, and have firsthand experience using public funding to improve lives. For the last decade, I’ve served as CEO of Encompass Community Services, the largest health and human services nonprofit in Santa Cruz County, providing essential behavioral health, childhood development, and housing services. I understand county government’s strengths and weaknesses in meeting community needs. As your Supervisor, I’ll use my broad leadership experience to ensure we’re prepared for natural disasters, and have the safety and infrastructure our district deserves.
