I have worked very diligently to live by these principles during my time as Mayor
and feel that these principles still stand as a valuable touchstone.
My Commitment to Pacific Grove Citizens
As Mayor, I will
- Actively seek and understand a cross section of community
views on PG issues.
- Respect the diversity of views in our community, and
seek from it the best solutions for our city.
- Act based on the best interests of Pacific Grove and the
members of the PG community
- Insist on the best solutions for our future.
- Challenge myself and others to make PG both an
and a respected community.
- Seek and welcome feedback on my actions, and strive to
improve my effectiveness.
An editorial note: Item #4 proves to be one of the most challenging. It is so tempting to preserve
the comfort of the present, as is so often demanded by our citizens.
Yet the uncertain, uncomfortable, and inevitable future demands our attention and best judgment.
