This information is provided by the candidate

Who I Am:

I am a 45-year old, happily married Coronado homeowner. My husband retired from the military after 22 years of active duty.

If you don't already know me from CERO (Coronado Emergency Radio Operators), Bridge and Bay Garden Club, Family Gym and Community Pool, you might recall my role in saving the Coronado Commuter Ferry.

When our Commuter Ferry was threatened with de-funding by SANDAG, I formed a citizens' group, drafted a petition and walked all around our island to get signatures to save the ferry.

I was successful getting signatures which caught the attention of State Senator Dede Alpert. Senator Alpert held a special session at the State Legislature in Sacramento to save the ferry. Senator Alpert's special session was successful. It resulted in funding ad infinitum (forever guaranteed) for the Coronado Commuter Ferry.

What Brought Me to Coronado:

I first came to Coronado for a professional conference of attorneys from around the USA. This conference was held at our crown jewel: the Hotel Del.

It was love at first sight for me with Coronado. I was born and raised in a small town with the same values and similar cherished traditions.

I moved to town on January 1, 1995. I managed a popular retail store on Orange Avenue while studying for the California Bar Exam.

I passed the California Bar Exam on the first try and began working in government.

I have the character, integrity, education, temperament, broad life experience and government experience to be the best Mayor of Coronado.
