illness times; font-size: 14pt;”>I am not interested in taking our community left or right; I want to move the 44th Assembly District forward. I want to build on our local successes and help state government operate with similar efficiency and purpose. It shouldn’t matter whether you’re a Democrat or Republican—you should have someone representing you in Sacramento who will work with both parties to get results. I am the only candidate running for State Assembly who has the experience, ambulance bipartisan record and common-sense approach to the challenges we face.
I am proud to say that I’ve been a Thousand Oaks City Councilmember who’s helped create thousands of jobs and balance the budget nine years in a row. I was first elected in 2004, and reelected in 2008 and 2012 (serving as mayor for two terms). Before entering public service, I worked as an engineer at Teledyne Systems and on the Trident Missile Project at the Johns Hopkins. I have always enjoyed solving problems. That’s why I’m excited to serve you in the State Assembly.

After ten years on the council, I have learned to work with both sides to get things done. During my tenure, Thousand Oaks was ranked as the safest city in California according to the FBI. Our city also has the lowest sales tax and some of the most streamlined regulations in the state. This kind of business-friendly environment has generated thousands of good-paying jobs in biotech, service and manufacturing. Additionally, T.O. has some of the best schools in the area—schools for which we’ve worked hard to create successful after school and anti-drug programs.
My community service is extensive and ongoing. I currently serve on the executive boards for the Ventura County Chapter American Red Cross and the CSUCI Arts and Sciences Leadership Council. I’ve also worked with the Girl Scouts; American Diabetes Tour for the Cure; American Cancer Society; and the Thousand Oaks Rotary Club. I was also president of the Titans Football Association for 14 years.
I’m proud to have received the 2008 Woman of the Year Award from the Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village Chamber of Commerce for working together with both sides to attract new business to the area. Now, six years later, I am proud to have the support of business leaders throughout the District as I continue to work with both sides and create jobs and economic opportunity without the political games. I am also proud to be endorsed by Sheriff Dean and every law enforcement agency in the state, as well as our firefighters, leading women’s health care advocates, teachers and senior groups.

As a mother of three, I understand the importance of pragmatism and planning. I understand the importance of quality classrooms, safe streets, fiscal discipline and good-paying jobs I also understand the need to move Ventura County forward with purpose. If you agree that we need a bipartisan, common sense approach to the issues we face, please come out to vote for me on November 4th. I would be honored to have your support.
