Opinion

She captured me for life with the unforgettable first line by Molly Ivins I ever read:


"I was sitting here in my office, trimming my split ends, when the phone rang ..."

As we have realized another Christmas holiday and entered the new year, we cannot let ourselves forget those who don't have the same opportunities so many of us enjoy.


Now that I have been sworn into office as District 3 Supervisor, the culmination of a long and difficult campaign, some might think that I would be most grateful today for the outcome of all this. And I am thankful for this opportunity. Yet, gratitude means even more these days.

As I prepare to take office as District 3 Supervisor on Jan. 9,  I reflect on what I’ve heard from citizens in the community and what the Board of Supervisors can achieve in the months ahead. I’ve been asked to share my thoughts on what I hope to accomplish in my first year in office.
