Pat on the Issues

Affordable Housing >>

Future affordable housing needs to be compatible with our neighborhoods and small town character.

Budget >>

There is no question: We’ve started doing things differently in Novato.

Downtown Revitalization >>

I am fully committed to making our downtown lively, prosperous and truly the heart of the Novato community.

Transportation >>

Improving transportation and ending gridlock on our freeways and highways is one of the biggest challenges we face.

Youth Issues >>

Youth are one of our most precious resources and must be given the ability to grow into responsible citizens.

Juvenile Crime >>

If juvenile crime isn’t fought on the streets by the police, in the classrooms by the teachers and in the homes by parents, we are bound for failure.

Seniors >>

The two most important areas that we need to address for seniors are housing and transportation.

Environmental Protection >>

One of my many passions has been working to expanding and making it more convenient for our residents to recycle, reduce and reuse.
