Position Papers
Why I Am Running
Get Big Money Out of Politics and Stop Sprawl
Q&A On Other Issues
"Think Globally, Act Locally" is the motto of the time, but county government continues to govern in the old style. I am for bringing the holistic Big Picture to county government and connecting the dots between "issues" like sprawl and crime, public health, and the quality of life.
Global Warming and Local Governments: The Case for Community Choice as an "Act Locally" Strategy
The 1992 Rio Summit on Global Warming fingered local government as the essential layer of government to deal with Global Warming. There is a movement among local governments to do so, and electricity is key to this effort, being the largest single cause of greenhouse gases. The following paper summarizes the political situation in California surrounding empowering local governments to act.
