CLAREMONT CITY COUNCIL
MY PLEDGE TO NOT ACCEPT ENDORSEMENT OR FINANCIAL SUPPORT FROM ORGANIZATIONS OR POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEES IN THIS CAMPAIGN
I believe that a council member should be citizen driven and citizen responsive. I pledge to adhere to my principles of transparency in government, fiscal responsibility, and citizen driven policy. I pledge not to take organization or Political Action Committee endorsements or financial support in conducting my campaign so that I can maintain the integrity and independence for which I have become known by those who support me. I never forget that I work for and am accountable to all of our citizens. I ask for your support and vote in this election so that I can continue to work for you.
SUPPORT CLAREMONT BUSINESSES FOR YOUR NECESSITIES
While we each need to assure that we respect “safer at home” advisories, we still may need food and supplies. During these challenging times, please consider supporting your local Claremont businesses for your necessities first. The following is a link to a comprehensive list maintained by the Claremont Chamber of Commerce of businesses that remain open in our City:

To My Friends & Neighbors:
It is an honor to serve the town I have called home for over 46 years.
As the only candidate who possesses institutional memory and the only candidate who has been elected and served citywide, I am well positioned to continue serving the entire City, not only the district.
I have a proven record of listening and working constructively and effectively with my colleagues and community members to reach meaningful compromise and resolution to concerns and challenges while maintaining civility.
We are in a period of unprecedented challenges with finances, public turmoil, and COVID. Following this election, 4 of 5 members of the City Council will have less than 2 years of on-the-job experience. Our City Manager has 2 1/2 years of service with Claremont.
While newcomers to the process can be revitalizing to an organization, maintaining a balance of historical knowledge and experience is equally important, especially in uncertain times.
I never forget that I work for you. I stand for honesty, integrity and transparency in government; fiscal responsibility; and citizen-driven policy. I ask for your vote on November 3 so that I can continue to work for you.
