It's Election Day! I have voted and I hope that you did (or will) as well!

Requesting a New Ballot When You Spoil the First One

Poll place ballot: Return the spoiled ballot to the poll worker and ask for a new one.

Mailed ballot: Call the elections office for a replacement (831) 796-1499 or (866) 887-9274. You can also return the ballot in person directly to the Elections Department or bring it to your assigned polling place on Election Day.

If you do not bring your vote by mail ballot with you on Election Day to give to the poll worker, you will be asked to vote on a provisional ballot.

Here is my candidate statement that has been included in the Monterey County Voter Guide.

In 2017, I became involved with Citizens for Just Water. As chair, with fellow volunteers, I fight for Marina’s water and environmental justice for our beautiful coastal city. I’ll continue to be outspoken and a leader to protect trees in the new developments.

Safety for residents is a primary concern with emergency fire and medical response times unacceptably long, and increased speed limits posing danger for pedestrians and bicyclists. Other key issues are the lack of sufficient parking at Abrams Park and Preston Park and, Marina deserving a real downtown, and civic center that is ADA compliant.

We should do a better job at city infrastructure maintenance, including median landscaping on 2nd Ave and Imjin Parkway. Play structures should not be lost due to negligence and deterioration, and streetlights need timely repair. I support plans for a Sports Center, Aquatic Center, and several new city parks, including play areas and dog parks, all located in our new District 4!

As your councilmember, I will use my background in property management (I have a Master’s in Architecture) to help improve city maintenance programs.

I will always try to get the facts and share those with you.

City of Marina Districts

The new District 4 includes Preston Park, Abrams Park, Cypress Knolls, part of CSUMB, Sea Haven, and the Dunes, including University Village Apartments. Due to the redistricting, residents of the new District 4 again will be able to vote, just like in 2020, while several residents in the new District 2 will not be able to vote (or run for office) for the second time in a row. They unfortunately will need to wait until 2024.

In 2019, I helped educate our neighbors to oppose the city council's decision to select a district map that combined northern- and southern Marina into one district, and the Dunes neighborhood to be spread out over two different districts. In 2022, the current city council fortunately voted to choose a much more logical map.

On February 23, 2022, the Marina City Council selected Map 109 (with renumbered districts) for adoption, implementing new electoral district boundaries. Ordinance No. 2022-01 was officially adopted at the City Council Meeting on March 1, 2022.

Election Sequencing:

November 2022 – Elected At-large Mayor, District 1 and District 4

November 2024 – District 2 and District 3
