I've been meaning to start a blog for awhile now, but it seems that time is always a factor. But with a newspaper that has a certain political bent, I realized that I had to show that there are different perspectives to most issues. And contrary to our less than venerable local newspaper, all news in Vallejo isn't bad news, and all sides to an issue aren't "right" or "wrong." They're just different. This blog will focus on sharing my points of view, my reasonings behind some of the more controversial votes, and things I'm doing in our community.

So here it goes. But a disclaimer is needed, I think. This blog will be similar to an editorial in a newspaper. The opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone and come from my personal point of view -- they are not the opinions of any other city councilmembers, the city manager or staff. The issues I discuss on this blog will center around the public realm, city politics, and issues related to Vallejo and city government. Once I get things up and running, I will allow people to post moderated questions to me on the blog. But for now, I'll just be posting as regularly as possible, sometimes more often than others, so keep checking back!
