and currently, an
environmental lawyer representing cities, water districts and businesses
California, I'm determined to protect our community, natural resources
As co-author of California's Landmark Environmental Law, Proposition
65, I understand
the challenge of setting high goals.
I'm fiscally conservative, will eliminate waste, guard city reserves
and have a proven
track record of obtaining state/federal resources for cities like
Calabasas. I've frequently
and effectively challenged the status quo on behalf of public health and
not deterred by entrenched ideas nor bureaucratic obstacles and will
fight for change,
I ask for an opportunity to bring experience, rational thinking,
fresh ideas and ambitious
goals to the city council, to preserve and enrich our city.
Police and Fire: I'll be vigilant and uncompromising in overseeing
efforts to keep
Calabasas very low in crime and fast in emergency response times.
Traffic Congestion: Congestion is a problem we cannot tolerate. It's
unacceptably worse. I'll oppose overdevelopment and be a major catalyst
better traffic management plans. Having successfully prosecuted
polluters and stopped oil companies from contaminating drinking water in
and Morro Bay, I'll fight more effectively to stop Ahmanson Ranch and
the congestion it
Open Space: I treasure open space. I'm a daily runner on streets /
Calabasas. I'll preserve what we have and fight hard to acquire
Schools: My wife Susan and I have a young son and excellence in
education is a priority.
I'll be a fierce advocate to reduce overcrowding, support after-school
concentrate on school safety, reckless driving and teen sobriety.
I'll be an avid supporter of issues important to seniors.
