What would you like to see the Town Council accomplish?
I have been honored to serve on the council this past year, and be involved issues effecting Crescenta Valley residents. I am eager to continue with these ventures in service of the community. I am proud of the way the TC has worked to identify areas of concern in La Crescenta, and how they have found ways to create change. Either by securing funding for the big projects, or picking up a shovel and taking on the smaller projects. I would like to see the council continue on this path.

As a new member of the Town Council, what would be your goals for the next year or what would you hope to contribute to the Town Council?
In my first year on the council, I have started some work that I hope to finish in my next term. I am helping to chair an event that is a joint venture with the La Crescenta Library. This will happen next spring. I also serve as co-chair on council’s urban planning committee which will work with UCLA graduate students to identify opportunities/designs for our community to use our open spaces. I have been fortunate to have a seat at the table in quarterly meetings with the GUSD board.
