I have been a member of this community for 60 years! And, I have to emphasize that Livermore is truly a special place. When asked at a recent event what makes Livermore special, my answer was that the people who live here are engaged with the community. People are engaged with the arts, sports, schools, scouts, civic committees, work and study groups. Individuals are donating time, effort, funding and sweat equity to these organizations and many more, such as housing or shelter for vets, homeless, and special needs people.

We are in the process of determining the nature of the central core of this community for the next 40 - 50 - and more years to come. People want parking, a major destination hotel, along with an open space park as part of the ensemble. Housing will be a significant part of the final mix. I am convinced that there is time to create a better, more comprehensive plan. I will support an initiative that will allow that to happen.
