Why did I step up to run for office? Because we are at risk in this country of losing what binds us together as a people and gives value and joy to our lives: our commitment to the betterment of all in our community.

In Sebastopol, we need to heed that call, and on a local level put to action policies and practices that serve all of us as a community, knowing that improving for all is the key to our future.
