Every resident deserves to feel safe in their home and have safe streets to walk, bike and — yes! — drive on. As your Council representative, I have worked hard to mitigate unsafe intersections. In 2016 when I was Mayor we partnered with our Fire District and worked with CalTrans to install the first ever Hybrid Signal light along El Camino at Almendral, with a signals also installed at ECR and Alejandra and Isabella Avenues.
Our relationship with the Fire District is a valuable one, and I want to work together to make it stronger. I do not support “detachment” from the Fire District. Atherton has always had their own Public Safety Department, and I intend to make that department as strong and as effective as possible. Investment into the education of our Officers for best practices in de-escalation of incidents, while protecting our properties, making Atherton safe, and property values enhanced.
