Every day we enjoy access to clean, safe and reliable water without much thought. We wash our dishes, water our plants, draw a bath for our children. Despite drought and new development, Vallecitos Water District has maintained a high level of service at the lowest possible cost to you. The credit goes to the dedicated employees at VWD but it is the Board that is ultimately responsible. The Board should serve YOU, the customer, and for the last four years it has been my honor to serve you as your VWD Board representative.
I have lived in San Marcos since 1981, raising my family and growing a business here with my husband, Greg, the creator of the LUANN comic strip. I have been a teacher, city council woman, and public servant because I care deeply about our community and for the people who make it their home.
In my free time, I love to enjoy my family and working in my yard. We have two beautiful acres in the Twin Oaks Valley area which have undergone many changes to become more water-wise. Two of our children were married in our backyard--look at how green!--but we are most proud of the native landscaping we have since transitioned to and the wildlife that come to visit. I find such joy in watching the birds, squirrels, coyotes, and even occasional rattlesnake enjoying our space.
Water is something we don't think much about. We expect it to be there when we need it. As your VWD representative, I look carefully at the policies, regulations, and programs so that your expectations are met. When you choose to vote for me as your VWD representative, you are choosing someone who is experienced, honest, and committed to YOU.
