My Top 3 Priorities

  • Retain our fire station in Ross while building task forces focused on wildfire prevention and safety.With increased wildfire risk, it’s critical to have a dedicated fire station that can respond quickly to emergencies in Ross.
  • Committed to helping our schools thrive in Ross, while maintaining the small town feel that makes Ross such a special place. supports I support Branson/Measure F and will work to find a revenue and traffic neutral way to support their growth.
  • I will use my business acumen to enforce financial discipline and spend our tax dollars wisely. We need to stop wasting our tax dollars on expensive consultants to analyze the town’s issues.

Biography

“I’m running for Ross Town Council and I’m committed to finding real solutions for the challenges facing our town”

I’m a father of two kids at Ross School (2nd and 5th grade). I’ve lived in Marin for 40 years and moved to Ross in large part for the schools and community. I’m committed to helping our schools thrive, while maintaining what makes Ross such a special place.

Our Town Council has plenty of attorneys and needs more diversity. I grew my company, Propertyware, from a 3-person startup with limited funding to a successful public company with hundreds of employees. I’m a scrappy leader who has a track record of meeting deadlines and budget constraints. You can trust that with my leadership, our limited tax revenues will be well spent. With your vote, I will work hard to find creative solutions for our town’s most challenging issues.
