To the people of Marina:

I am so grateful to the voters of Marina for electing me to the City Council!  Though the voters in District 2 specifically elected me, due to the districting system that we are operating under for the first time, this in no way means that a councilmember will favor one district over another…I see myself accountable as a council person to all residents of Marina!  I shall try to meet each issue on the Council with the same values and objective reasoning and hard work that I believe you saw in me prior, and for which you placed your confidence in me for the future!  I fully intend to seek opinions from the public about major issues and to hear the concerns of the residents of Marina.  Together we can continue to shape our collective bright future!  

No matter how big or small the issues may be, how complex or simple, how immediate or far into the future, everyone’s opinion can shed important light on the issues facing Marina.
