I have spent the last 15+ years gaining experience that has prepared me to take on this position. There are two main points that help me stand out from my competition. First, my experience over the last few years on the Planning Commission. This experience has proved invaluable. While on the Commission, we deal mostly with very specific interpretations of the policy direction that is handed down from Town Council. It is this first hand experience that is important to carry to the Council. I am already up to speed and am ready to hit the ground running.
Second is my role as COO of Tahoe Mountain Sports. I am the only principle business owner running in the campaign. I know how to manage complex processes, have first hand accounts of our employee housing issues, understand what it takes to run a small business in our town and know the regulations that can affect our local businesses.
It is this combination of experience that uniquely sets my candidacy apart from my competition.
