This information is provided by the candidate

I am a seventh generation Californian, born at St. Joseph's and a lifelong Orange resident, working to ensure that our city's future is secure.

Orange needs a proven leader committed to reducing the cost of government, while encouraging business growth and jobs. I pledge to uphold values that make Orange a city where families and businesses thrive.

A fiscal conservative, with proven record of responsible stewardship, I'm committed to protecting taxpayers while guaranteeing excellent public safety. Recognized for preserving property rights in Old Towne Orange, I served as Orange Planning Commissioner and as your elected City Councilwoman.

Endorsed by:

Orange Mayor Carolyn Cavecche Former Orange County Supervisor William G. Steiner Former Mayors Joanne Coontz and Jim Beam Former Orange Councilmembers Fred Barrera, Dan Slater, Mike Spurgeon

Married 44 years, Bill and I cherish our four children and five grandchildren. I've served on many local boards and commissions. I earned a B.A. from UCI and Masters Degree from USC. I serve as Executive Director of a large community agency.

I pledge consistent conservative financial leadership and full transparency. Using history as our guide, we can continue to make Orange the best place for businesses, families and our great educational institutions.
