Meeting the Challenge of Change
Our unique small-town heritage and values are what binds Benicia together. In order to keep our values and what we love about our community, we need new, bold thinking that addresses today’s needs, tomorrow’s opportunities and establishes a path that prepares us for the future.
The next City Council will be faced with significant challenges and opportunities. The Challenge of Change will be difficult to embrace . But we must face it head on with collective cause and common sense. I believe we need to focus on what we can and should be based on community input and support. This will take hard work and compromise on the part of the council and the community by coming together. This will take a collaborative spirit.
I will bring to Benicia City Council a bold, proven record of innovation and visionary thinking, a strong understanding of financial responsibility and the ability to get things done by looking at problems and opportunities through a different lens. I will bring to City Council empathy and the understanding that social justice means equality and equity for all in our government and in our community.
We are in a period of turbulent change. Covid-19 has unfortunately changed everything. Turbulent change demands we face the Challenges of Change with courageous, innovative thinking.
I have faith in Benicia. I have faith that we recover and be a better, stronger Benicia .
I ask for your vote.
