Other facts

In the 8 years since I took office Napa has seen more investment and has built more parks, roads and bridges, than it has over the past several decades. Through new hotel revenue and other businesses, under my leadership, Napa is one of only a few California cities with a balance budget. As the only candidate seeking reelection, I have the experience necessary so we can continue to move Napa in the right direction. Additionally, the reason I initially ran for City Council was to repay the community for their support after and accident left me in a wheelchair in 1982-two decades later the community in Napa continues to inspire and motivate me.
