To the Editor:
In this month's Kensington Outlook, Bruce Morrow and Melissa Holmes wrote in with questions about my platform. I wanted to respond before this election since another Outlook won't run before then.
Mr. Morrow mentions that my promise to get Kensington After School Enrichment Program (KASEP) registration on-line is out of the jurisdiction of the Kensington Police Protection Community Services District (KPPCSD). I'm glad he asks for clarification as the KPPCSD rents the buildings to the this program and can opt to rent to another agency who is willing to update their services if KASEP is not.
Ms. Holmes who sits on Kensington Municipal Advisory Council (KMAC) with me should have asked me what I meant when I said that Kensington Improvement Club (KIC) and Kensington Community Council (KCC) I would work with them to put their accounting on-line. When Joan Gallegos asked me, she was satisfied with my response. To move forward implementing our master plan, we will need to be a unified community. The only way to do this is by transparency. KCC has $415K available and KIC a much smaller amount. I believe we can do move forward with available funding so that next year El Cerrito Democratic Club will choose our facilities as the choice place for their annual dinner over the church across the street.
This dialog between community members is our way to get us to work in concert rather than in discord. I am glad I am engaging all members from all the K's!
