Leadership comes from doing the work, day after day. That’s why I work with the agencies and elected leaders from all over our region, state and nation; it’s not just about what occurs within our borders, but how we relate and react to whatever affects our community. It’s also why I work with organizations such as the Unity Center and Boys and Girls Club, because that kind of leadership affects lives, makes lives better, and builds a stronger future for our community.
Leadership in Monrovia requires commitment, creativity, trust and the ability to work together with all parts of our diverse community. I have a proven record of just such leadership – a positive, cooperative and open approach to working through our problems. My involvement has paid off for Monrovia time and again as I have brought new solutions to our challenges.
Leadership requires more than just voting no, more than judging or blaming. Leadership is not achieved by criticizing, it occurs when one acts with the courage of one’s convictions. It’s not just disagreeing … it’s doing!
