For a thriving, sustainable
San Luis Obispo

I am running for a fourth term as Mayor. Under my leadership, we've received national recognition as an outstanding place to live, work and play. I'm proud of these accomplishments, but much remains to be done to maintain our upward economic, social and environmental momentum.

A proven municipal and regional leader, I’ve responded decisively and creatively to challenges facing San Luis Obispo, promoting fiscal and environmental responsibility, economic vitality, pension reform, and neighborhood wellness.

During my next term, I'll champion neighborhood stabilization, workforce and affordable housing, open space preservation, and pedestrian and bicycle Masterplan implementation.

My experience, effectiveness and vision make me the most qualified candidate. I would appreciate your vote.


What's New

Final post

As you probably know by now, my opponent won the election by 47 votes.   I am grateful to all who cheered me on during this difficult campaign year and elected me to City Council five times in the past. I hope that the community will urge the new Council to abide by the General Plan and respect the decisions of former Councils, as well as seek new solutions to pervasive problems. In retirement, I am looking forward to new adventures and exploring other ways to contribute to our community. Thank you, everyone, for your friendship, ideas and advice over the years.

Election Night Party!

You are invited to celebrate our Election Night party, 7:30—10:30 at Novo Restaurant, 726 Higuera St. on the deck by the creek. Let’s enjoy good company, good food and follow the results together!
