3. I will work to maintain the character of our coastal community by protecting ocean, harbor and bay views, securing open space and enhancing the Upper Newport Bay. While as a continuing member of City Council I am committed to providing quality police, fire, and lifeguard and recreation services. I am committed to maintaining a world class library system and continuing to provide seniors with services at Oasis. City facilities must be refurbished to good order particularly the Oasis center and public safety facilities. I will implement the signal synchronization system to improve traffic flow. I have worked on the technology plan. I will continue to lead our efforts in trying to prevent Irvine from developing the 20,000 high-rise condos at our border that generates more traffic in Newport Beach. I will work to preserve the flight curfew and enforce the settlement agreement. I will continue to work with each of you and my colleagues on City Council for the betterment of our community.
