"Plans are worthless, but planning is everything”
- Dwight Eisenhower
We have some big problems in our community today. Problems that hold us back from being the great city we all want to have. To really understand candidates voters deserve more than just a few vague sentences about important issues.
I am sure you will find something in these plans that you disagree with. I expect you will find a lot more that we agree on. These plans are a first step. Long before anything is implemented, there will be revisions, rewrites, community feedback, research and more.
I would enjoy hearing your thoughts on these plans: firstname.lastname@example.org, (650) 733-3917
