Why I’m Running

Moving Forward Morro Bay

I love Morro Bay and I support the direction in which we are going.

I appreciate what we have accomplished in the past 3 1/2 years and what we are planning to do over the next 10 years.

  • We built a new bicycle pedestrian bridge over Morro Creek that connects North Morro Bay to the Embarcadero.
  • We completely remodeled the interior of our beautiful library.
  • We have laid the foundation for a new Maritime Museum on the Embarcadero.
  • We’ve hired a new city manager and begun a comprehensive program of economic development.
  • We are working toward building a new boatyard and haulout facility.
  • We are building a new water reclamation facility that is going to convert wastewater into drinking water and replenish the Morro Bay aquifer. We will stop dumping 1,000,000 gallons of wastewater a day into the Pacific Ocean.
  • We have developed a strategic planning process that helps us develop our city in a thoughtful and methodical way.
  • We are updating our general plan and our zoning ordinance. That will lay out a blueprint for future development with significant input from the people of Morro Bay.

My passion is to help my city prosper and grow

My vision of Morro Bay is that we are a small town that takes care of its citizens and welcomes visitors.

We need to build a sense of community in Morro Bay, people finding common ground to build on for the common good. Collaboration is the key to success.

I value for Morro Bay its –

  • Small town atmosphere
  • Scenic surroundings
  • Open space and parks
  • Outdoor activities
  • Small business owners
  • Citizen volunteers
  • Participative government

I want our city to provide a good living standard for the people who want to live here.  That includes

  • Affordable housing
  • A variety of businesses and entertainment
  • Small town atmosphere
  • Scenic surroundings and open space
  • Outdoor exercise opportunities
  • An affordable getaway for visitors
