It has been an honor serving Malibu these past eight years as a councilmember, mayor pro tem and mayor.
There are many lessons I have learned, but perhaps the most important is that Malibu isn't just a small world famous town, it's family. We may have our fair share of sibling rivalries and drama, but deep down we are all bonded in our love to protect and preserve Malibu and it's precious natural resources.
We are blessed to live in one of the most pristine places left on planet Earth that has both the ocean and the mountains as our bookends. As has been said many times before, I am reminded that Malibu is not a place that we inherit, it is a place that we borrow from future generations.
I am in awe of what we can accomplish when we are united, not divided, and take action. Whether it be playing games at Bluffs Park, building Legacy Park to clean the ocean, or renovating the Malibu Library, when we act as a community we can accomplish anything!
Words can not express the gratitude and respect I have for all of you who are Malibu, so I created a little music video. Many of you may not be personally featured in it, but you are all in my heart.
Sent with love and gratitude,
