My grandmother, Esther Mounce, taught me the importance of community involvement by helping many people in Lodi during her lifetime.
She inspired me and, over the past twenty years, I have volunteered with numerous groups including the Eastside Improvement Committee, Junior Achievement, the Year 2000 Committee and Lodi Historical Society.
I led the Hale Park Family Concert Series and I am a Neighborhood Watch Captain. Nothing means more to me than my family and community.
After thirty years in accounting, I know the importance of fiscal responsibility. I am a financial conservative. As a businesswoman, I will bring years of budget experience to city council.
I am a hardworking, honest person, dedicated to the success and accountability of the city, to you, the citizens of Lodi.
