Position Papers
Over-reaching City Government - Disconnected Leaders
We currently have an over-reaching city government creating policy that is anti-home improvement and refurbishment, which ultimately hurts Belmont home values and families. The Council often seems disconnected to the youth and does not do enough to enhance the quality of life for all.
Smoking Ordinance
As we know too well, Belmont's unusually broad anti-smoking ordinance has brought an unexpected and negative national focus on Belmont. This we can overcome by rationalizing the ordinance with citizen input and voting the right leadership into office. If we do not, then ultimately my concern is that overbroad legislation of this type exposes Belmont to expensive lawsuits and negatively affects our finances and citizens.
Notre Dame de Namur University
As the only University in a City in San Mateo County, we should be working more together and our vision statement and core values should be alliend. Education is Belmonts' largest business and NDNU bring a lot to the community today. Not only in the form of jobs, education programs, athletics but funds, millions of dollars into the local economy. The students are tops!
