I am announcing my candidacy for a seat on the Coronado City Council.
I have experience volunteering in our community as I served on the Planning Commission, the Historic Resource Commission, the Library Board of Trustees and the Coronado City Council. And for the last few years I have devoted my time to the Coronado Historical Association.
I have watched with dismay the over building of our village, with no consideration to the neighbor’s property or the neighborhoods. I want to help control that overbuilding! The new structures should enhance our community not reduce the value of our adjoining properties. We must protect out future by preserving our past. And we can do this together by controlling the envelopes of these new buildings, by producing a comprehensive package reducing the presently allowed F.A.R., setbacks and design features.
Code enforcement should be readdressed. I believe in a “proactive” approach rather than the “reactive” policy now supported by the present Council. The city should have a full time code enforcement officer who can follow through on any violations.
The sidewalks in the downtown are filthy and should be cleaned on a weekly basis, especially in the summer months when we have so many visitors.
These are just a few of the issues that concern me and my decision to run for Council was not an easy one. I know the amount of time it involves and the commitment one must make. But I have loved this town and felt privileged to have called it home. So I am stepping forward and offering you my time and my commitment. If you are looking for a candidate with experience on local issues, a love of Coronado, and a common sense approach to government, I’m your candidate. I would appreciate your support.
