Position Papers
Official Candidate Statement
A short and concise statement of the reasons why I want to serve you on the Santa Monica Rent Control Board.
Santa Monica Tea Party (Parcel Taxes)
This position paper discusses my independent review of the Santa Monica schools' financial situation -- and describes my ideas for getting more resources for our schools. To date, I have already located more than $2.5 million in unaccounted-for tax dollars that might be owed to our schools.
A Parcel Tax alternative to be debated after Novmeber 5
This position paper asks three questions about the former Measure Y and the new Measure EE that need to be debated to be able to have a "fair" and "equitable" taxing distribution going forward for Eduction; for the additonal funding needed at the Santa Monica Unified School District because the County and State have failed our Kids.
