It has been an honor serving on the Half Moon Bay City Council the past 4 years and to be acting as your Mayor for 2020. Thank you for electing me.
I love this place! My children were born here and attend Hatch Elementary and Cunha Middle School. My wife and I volunteer in the schools, coach our children’s soccer teams, garden, surf, mountain bike and walk and ride the trails.
It is my sincere hope that I have made you proud of your vote. When I ran in 2016 I listed a few top priorities:
Communication – I initiated the weekly mayor’s letter during the Covid-19 pandemic, keeping everyone in the community informed, and allowing all to comment on upcoming issues before they are voted on by council. I have been extremely responsive to all emails and messages I receive. Every person who communicates with me gets a direct response. CLICK HERE for example of Mayor's Letter
Fiscal Responsibility – During my time on council I helped to create an emergency relief fund. This fund was created when finances were strong. Then Covid-19 hit. We are now relying on these funds to keep us solvent. We need leaders on council who have the foresight to plan accordingly.
Local Coastal Plan – This is the roadmap for the future of Half Moon Bay for the next 20-30 years. We are working diligently to have this complete by the end of my mayoral term.
I moved here many years ago because of our spectacular beaches, trails and small-town culture. I will continue to work tirelessly every day to protect that.
I would be honored to have your support and ask for your vote in the upcoming November 2020 election.
