My Stance on Issues Facing San Mateo County Residents
Transparency and openness begin with one's own campaign. Below are my positions and thoughts on some of the weightier issues facing our County. As I have done on the East Palo Alto City Council, my positions are never dogmatic, but open to criticism, discussion and reformulation based on vigorous and sound debate.
