Half Moon Bay City Council
San Mateo League for Coastside Protection
The November election for the Half Moon Bay City Council is critically important to the future of our community. There are many issues that face the voters, but I believe the most important concern facing our city is land use.
As we read in the HMB Review several weeks ago, some interests in the community have pledged a substantial war chest for this election to ensure a Council majority that will represent their interests. I need your help! I depend on my friends, neighbors and supporters to help win this election.
- I Pledge to implement Measure D as it was envisioned by 64 percent of the voters. By this we mean a maximum of 1 percent growth per year no exceptions! We thought that the issue was addressed when Measures D passed in November 1999. Now we find that the will of the people as expressed in Measure D is in jeopardy. If elected, I pledge to work for the implementation of Measure D as approved by the voters.
- I Pledge to uphold the Half Moon Bay Local Coastal Program (LCP) and complete its update. Our city s LCP is the local portion of the California Coastal Act that balances various environmental and land-use issues in the long-term interests of protecting irreplaceable natural resources. I pledge to adhere to the LCP when faced with decisions.Our LCP favors in-fill development, which means giving priority to approving homes on existing lots on existing streets with existing infrastructure.
- I Pledge to operate with the highest level of integrity . I have had asuccessful career and am committed to contributing to the city I love. I have no political aspirations other than to serve the citizens of HMB to the best of my ability.
I need your vote on November 6 and am also asking for your financial support.
