Occupation: Attorney /
If you want someone who is open
and honest, and who works hard and fights for what he believes in,
and who will fight for you to improve our Calabasas quality of life,
then I'm your candidate, and I would appreciate your support.
I have the proven experience and
commitment required for City Council. I have served on more
Calabasas commissions than anyone else.
According to the Acorn (11/25/99),
"Harrison has long been considered one of Calabasas' leading
environmentalists. He was also instrumental in creating the
city's Tree Board and has been a driving force for change on the
As a member of the Planning
Commission, I have spearheaded the drives against overdevelopment
on Las Virgenes Road (Canyon Hills), and the Aronoffs' misplaced
ridgeline fantasy. I have worked tirelessly for the
enforcement of existing rules and specific plans.
On a regional level, I am a delegate
to the Las Virgenes Homeowners' Federation, and I helped draft the
North Area Plan and the water-efficient landscape ordinance.
Since graduating from UCLA School of
Law in 1976, I have practiced business law and estate
planning. For 8 years I served as a city prosecutor for
environmental and other code violations. I have also
adjudicated over 200 cases for the American Arbitration Association
and the NASD.
I would like to revive the "Run
for the Hills" event, and establish family-oriented activities
on New Year's Eve. I will work to implement a no-cost
sister-city program and a foreign student exchange.
Having two children in public
schools, I am motivated to improve communications with the school
district, and establish more cooperative ventures, such as
after-school playground use.
Concerned citizens and homeowners'
associations across the city are supporting me. I've also been
endorsed by "smart-growth" developers sensitive to
community needs, such as Rick Caruso (the Commons), and Ric Capretta,
who wrote the following:
"You can count on my support for
your City Council candidacy in Calabasas. When I dealt with
you on the Creekside Village project [the Albertson's center], you
were candid and forthright. I appreciated your input
regardless of whether we agreed. Your input was valuable and
helped make a better project for the City."
Now I need your support, too.
Please help me protect our Calabasas quality of life.
