Fiscal Discipline

I will maintain strong fiscal discipline. Just like families must save for long-term goals, Burlingame needs fiscal discipline even in strong economic times.  

I support:

  • Continued reduction of Burlingame’s unfunded liabilities by aggressively funding our Pension Trust Fund. We will not kick-the-can down the road to future generations!
  • Maintaining strong budget reserves to protect our city during the inevitable ebb and flow of economic cycles
  • Careful prioritization and timing of capital improvements
  • Exploring public-private partnerships to help fund capital improvements that benefit our community
  • Thoughtful investment in city staff to ensure maximum effectiveness of our local government
