I escaped Southern California partially due to the traffic and the wonderful alternatives offered here in San Luis Obispo. As a City resident, I have been intimately involved in traffic and transportation due to my concern about the extension of Prado Road in 2000. Along with other dedicated sports enthusiasts, I fought the small extension of Prado Road being built adjacent to the Damon-Garcia Sports Fields. That experience led me to analyze transportation, traffic and transit plans in every development for the past 16 years. I will ensure that traffic infrastructure is completed before new housing developments are built, not vice versa, as has been the pattern over the past several decades. Finally, I am a vocal advocate for Class 1 bike lanes for existing and proposed development.
