Transparency: Revitalize Civic Participation
A recent study found that only 28% of Americans recently worked with fellow citizens to solve a problem in their community. Our city, state, and country will need to overcome difficult challenges in the years ahead. I will work tirelessly to foster and promote citizen participation in local government. As a council member, I will work to expand the Neighborhood Improvement Program, and involve community members on city boards, committees and commissions. Monterey can and should do more to use 21st century tools to ensure that Monterey residents from all walks of life all have proper representation in our city.
