Peggy's official ballot statement:

Ballot Designation: Architect / Mother

Education and Qualifications: Chair, Los Gatos Architectural Standards Committee; B.A with honors, U.C. Berkeley

Los Gatos is a great community with a wonderful small town character. My husband and I are delighted to be raising our children here. In order to ensure Los Gatos continues to be a desirable community in the future, we need to manage change intelligently.

As an architect, I am trained to balance complex requirements. I value our charming, historic downtown but I equally value the outlying neighborhoods. Iíve worked to protect the natural beauty of our hillsides by helping to draft the Hillsides Standards and rewrite the General Plan. I support teen efforts to contribute to our community; family-oriented places to play, eat, and shop; and high quality, small scale housing options for seniors and young adults.

Iím an honest, independent leader willing to work with everyone Ė youth, homeowners, renters, business owners, senior citizens, and newcomers - to achieve a better result for our whole town. Respect for each other and understanding other people are values I cherish.

Please join with me in making Los Gatos an even better place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
