Dear fellow Flagstaff residents and voters,


It is with renewed strength and commitment that I offer my whole being

once again to serve you and our beloved diverse Flagstaff community as

a WRITE-IN CANDIDATE for Flagstaff City Council in the November 8

General Election.

I’m the only independent serving on Flagstaff City Council for four years,

and the first Asian-American immigrant elected on Council.  Having lived

in Flagstaff for over sixteen years, as an Army mom and a business owner,

I’m actively involved toward business success, jobs, workforce housing,

transportation, and environmental stewardship. I cultivate relationships within our community. I bring state and federal dollars to our local programs.


With strengthened integrity and independence, I continue to pursue pragmatic, well-rounded and balanced leadership by focusing on local issues affecting Flagstaff communities and residents, seeking balance and workable solutions through meaningful engagement and consensus-building.

Working and collaborating with diverse community partners, with my leadership roles and the accomplishments of our Team Flagstaff at the City, we will continue to work on breathing life into the initiatives we have been pursuing, to wit:

  • Long-term flood mitigation, forest heath and watershed protection

  • Support business success and job growth through robust business attraction, retention, and expansion

  • Advocate for state and federal dollars for local programs and projects on multimodal transportation, workforce housing, childcare, and environmental stewardship

  • Create and fund Business One-Stop Shop (BOSS) online portal and a BOSS service desk at City Hall for business resources and services from start-ups to business expansions

  • Create and fund a Robust Workforce Development Program to expand and strengthen current workforce development efforts by the City as a proactive stakeholder of Arizona@Work

  • Establish a Pipe Trades Apprenticeship Training Center in Flagstaff to train skilled and certified journeypersons (pipefitters, plumbers, welders, HVAC refrigeration) in northern Arizona

  • Develop a City-wide Cost Recovery Policy

  • Adopt a Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Mayor and Council


I bring diverse perspectives and wide worldview to every leadership role I have held. My extensive background and experience in public governance from two countries (Philippines and USA), business sector, academe, and nonprofits are uniquely valuable capabilities in terms of community and economic development, policy research, analysis and advocacy, legislative development, budgeting, fiscal management, resource mobilization, labor dispute mediation, fundraising and friend-raising.


I represent the City of Flagstaff on the executive boards of Economic Collaborative of Northern Arizona (ECONA), Metroplan Greater Flagstaff, and Rural Transportation Advocacy Council (RTAC) for which I’ve been recently elected Vice-Chair. I’m also City Council’s liaison to the City’s Airport, Tourism and Parks and Recreation Commission.


In addition, I represent small business on the Arizona@Work Coconino Workforce Board. My volunteer work includes serving on the boards of Quality Connections, Flagstaff Leadership Program, Flagstaff Sister Cities International, and the Northern Arizona Lodging, Tourism, Restaurant Association.


Here are details about my accomplishments so far.  Connect with me via email or text 


Help me build integrity and unity in our diverse community on Nov. 8 General Election.
