I am running for the Board to preserve and protect the special and unique qualities of Tahoe Donner during the difficult times we currently face, and to ensure that we continue to enjoy our quality of life through planning for Tahoe Donner’s near-term needs and long-term challenges
Tahoe Donner - Our Neighborhood
Like most of you, I value the peace, open space, amenities and unlimited outdoor activities that we enjoy in this healthy family-friendly community, and sharing experiences here with family and friends. I am committed to preserving and enhancing these unique qualities of our mountain community.
For the past three years, I have successfully championed initiatives to improve our quality of live and safety, prevent party houses, eliminate commercial wedding venues in residences, and retain our family friendly nature and ambiance.
We now face the threat of COVID-19. I am running for the Board to help us recover from the impacts of the virus, and to continue my efforts to protect and enhance our quality of life, now and in the future.
My background and experience reflect my commitment and ability to ensure that Tahoe Donner remains and grows as a community that sustains us all.
Responding to the financial, health and safety impacts of COVID-19. The correct response now will put Tahoe Donner in the best position to rebound from the current crisis while preserving the value of our homes and our quality of life. We must mitigate revenue loss, safeguard our members and staff as amenities reopen, and avoid financial burden our members as we get our lives back in order from COVID-19.
Preserving quality of life. Preservation and enhancement of our tranquility, open space, amenities and unique features that caused most of us to buy homes here, while maintaining TD as an affordable, family-friendly community, has been and remains a top priority. Member benefit should guide all decisions. Without this focus, we run the risk of losing the very qualities that drew most of us to TD.
Anticipating and responding to changes ahead. We must be prepared for (a) increased fire risk and availability of reasonably priced home insurance, (b) third emergency egress, (c) potential snow shortfalls, (d) enhanced internet service, as more members rely on internet connections for work, safety and connectivity, and (e) other changing environmental/ regulatory conditions.
Member input. Decisions should be made in an inclusive process, with opportunity and consideration of member views. The best decisions are made where members are heard and encouraged to listen to other members to reach common ground on controversial issues
My husband and I have had a second home in Tahoe Donner for over 20 years. I spend as much time as possible here, enjoying the outdoors, the amenities and year-around outdoor activities, particularly cross-country skiing, competitive cycling, hiking and kayaking. Like most of you, I value the open space, tranquility and the healthy activities that we enjoy in this family friendly community.
