A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. – Lao Tzu
This past Monday evening I officially joined the San Carlos City Council, capping an intense, but exhilarating campaign season. Now the real work begins! I’m excited about getting started, and looking forward to working with my neighbors and my new colleagues to make San Carlos an even better community than it already is. Thanks to all of you who helped me during the election, and thanks to everyone who took the time to vote!
Regarding Monday’s ceremony, I was particularly pleased that the Council took the time to honor outgoing Council members Brad Lewis and Randy Royce. Both deserve kudos for serving our community during these challenging times.
Elections are about giving voters choices, but that can’t happen unless candidates are willing to step forward and subject themselves to scrutiny by their neighbors. That’s harder to do than most people realize. Regardless of what we may think of individual candidates, we should be glad that San Carlos has people who are willing to put themselves out there.
