I am running for the Kensington Police Protection and Community Services District Board to restore trust in our governance, fiscal policy and police services.
I moved to Kensington with my husband in 2008. Our two children attend Hilltop Elementary School and I serve on the Kensington Education Foundation board. I also served on the board of the Kensington Property Owners Association. I run my own consulting practice advising and training nonprofit leaders.
Early in my career, I helped establish the AmeriCorps national service program. I have devoted my professional life to shaping public policy, leading advocacy efforts, and developing priorities and effective fundraising strategies within the national and international philanthropic communities.
These experiences have taught me how to build cooperation and rally others around a common endeavor--skills that can inform my work on the KPPCSD board.
The final report of the Ad Hoc Committee for Governance and Operations Structure presents the new KPPCSD board with fundamental policy choices on how we manage police services and improve Kensington's governance structure. If elected I will work constructively with board members and residents to analyze our needs and address them in ways that minimize fiscal and legal risk. I will work to diminish acrimony and bolster civic engagement and consensus.
I have the judgment, skills and disposition needed to make good decisions for Kensington at this critical time. If you will give me your vote, I will serve you by listening, and forging solutions that will have tangible, positive and long-lasting impacts on Kensington.
