The Woodside Town Council has members with legal, business and financial mindsets but would benefit from my experience as an architect and my deep interest in planning.
Our Town has a pattern of reacting to crises rather than thinking ahead. The current housing element is a good example of the Council taking a transactional approach rather than looking at what kind of future we want for the Town and making changes to support that vision.
I am used to listening to the needs and dreams of our clients, thinking about what could be, considering conflicts and limitations then bringing the vision into being. We need a councilmember who can see what does not yet exist.
We need to plan how to accommodate the changes thrust upon us while preserving what we love about the Town.
