After having attended meetings, conferences, seminars and planning sessions, I have identified several issues of particular concern which I have described on my Issues page.  It became clear that Shasta County, and District 3 in particular, were not being adequately represented by the current Board of Supervisors.

My family's agricultural business was destroyed by county taxes and regulations and I see the same intrusions now happening in Shasta County.

I want to create a county, state and environment that provides a viable economy to provide jobs and opportunities for our most precious and valuable resources: our children.  Both of my sons and their families have left the North State for areas where there are jobs available, despite the fact that both of them have earned Master's Degrees.

We need for the board to undergo a shift in thinking to more closely reflect the ideas and viewpoints of the people they are supposed to represent.

Listening to the people is mandatory, but it doesn't go far enough.  A good representative offers new ideas, different perspectives, and an enticing vision for her constituents.  Arising challenges require creative resolutions and answers to our problems.
