Bowing out of race

San Luis ObispoMay 23, 2014 

I have decided not to run for City Council.

Many of us hold differing views on things, none of them necessarily right or wrong. This diversity of opinions is one of the things that makes San Luis Obispo interesting.

A council member must decide between these various viewpoints, and this often creates divisions rather than alliances. I’m not sure I know any better than anyone else which is the right answer.

Friendships mean more to me than any political aspirations.

Keeping my alliances with others, despite our differences, makes us better advocates for the truly important issues we all care about.
