My family and I have lived in Venice for 17 years, and for most of that time I’ve been involved with the VNC–I’ve been a Board Member and I also served on the Neighborhood, Safety/ Emergency Preparedness, Land Use & Planning and Ocean Front Walk Committees. I’m running for Treasurer because I’m a former CFO and CPA, and I’ve also been Treasurer of Jr. Achievement Hawaii and Soroptimist International Founder Region. I can definitely balance a budget!
But more importantly, this is a crucial time in Venice’s history, and I want to give of my time right now to support and be part of creating the very best future for Venice. In the words of Peter Douglas, one of the founders of the Coastal Act, “The Coast is never saved, it’s always being saved. Our work, your work, the labor of love that it is, is never finished. It’s a job that will always be ongoing.” I look forward to working with a new Board that effectively uses its voice in advising the City, in our ongoing labor of love for Venice!
