I care deeply about collaborative decision making. I have spent my adult life working with others in this way because it draws the best from them and creates the most lasting impact. When we engage each other as equals, we learn and grow and become better citizens. This is democracy in action. Though it can be messy at times, history proves it results in better decisions and a more stable organization or government in the long run.
I have worked closely with Joan Hartmann over the past decade on a variety of community projects. She, too, has spent her entire career bringing people together to work collaboratively and productively. She is one of the best I have seen at this, which is why she has my vote and wholehearted endorsement.
I hope you will join me in voting for Joan Hartmann for 3rd District Supervisor.
