the prior sale of sections of Recreation Park were used to develop
Pioneer Park as mandated by a referendum of the people.

a law, approved by the voters, giving the people complete control
of a valuable piece of property in the civic center. She also used
that process to preserve a valuable piece of City owned water well
property from being sold to developers for apartments. That property
is currently being developed as Heritage Park. She was never afraid
to challenge "the establishment" during her tenure in public office.

"We are privileged to live in this beautiful valley, however that requires vigilance on the part of each of us to maintain air quality, water quality, freeway travel that is not a nightmare", she says.
