Youth Issues

Protecting our natural resources has always been one of my priorities. To me, our youth are one of our most precious resources and must be given the ability to grow into responsible citizens. I am committed to providing our youth with the programs and facilities that will help them stay off drugs and out of gangs, and develop them into the leaders of tomorrow.

I supported more ball fields, the completion of the skate park and the Gymnastics and Youth Center, and the addition of new programs like boxing and roller hockey that keep abreast of the interest of today’s youth. I have also joined the Blue Ribbon Committee in Novato which is working to eliminate alcohol, tobacco and drug use by our youth, bullying and creating a positive experience for our youth.
