Transportation

I have experienced and heard from many of the residents that traffic within the city and Highway 1 is a challenge and many times unsafe.  Our city streets need to be safe for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists.  Many drivers need to slow down, put their cell phones down and understand that lives and property are at risk of being lost.  I’m an advocate for rail with transit. I love and appreciate our landscape and trails and believe that the rail with trail option will help reduce adverse environmental impact by reducing vehicles on the highway. Rail will provide a much-needed option for the significant percentage of South County residents commuting to and through North County, to get to their jobs or school.  Additionally, I believe having a rail transit will encourage an intra-county economic benefit and begin to connect us with the rest of the state.  

My commitment:

  • Continue to advocate, with fiscal responsibility, road and pedestrian programs that are in place and developing.
  • Work with all city government to promote and advocate for flashing cross-walks in high foot traffic streets and examine the need for speed bumps for our residential streets.
  • While exploring transportation options, maintain stewardship of parks, wetlands, and neighborhoods.
  • Be accessible and open, and include my constituents in the discussion.
