Lincoln City Mayor

Four forms of city government determine the administrative role of any city council. Most Oregon cities with populations over 2,500 have the council/manager or council/administrator form, in which the council hires a chief executive officer to be responsible for the daily supervision of city affairs. Portland has a commission form of government, where the elected commissioners function collectively as the city council and serve as administrators of city departments. Smaller Oregon cities typically have the mayor/council form, in which the legislative and policy-making body is a popularly elected council.Qualifications: An elective city officer shall be a qualified elector under the state constitution and shall have resided in the city during the 12 months immediately before being elected or appointed to the office. In this subsection "city" means area inside the city limits at the time of the election or appointment. In addition, a councilor shall have resided in the ward the councilor represents during the 12 months immediately before being elected or appointed to the office.

The eviction moratorium was extended until June 30,2021. The American Cares Act is pending to be released by end of June or the beginning of another budget year on July 1st. The amounts have all been allocated and will be coming to the Coastal towns and cities soon. I say let's be smart, calculated and measured in our moves and how they benefit the need of those that can't or won't speak up for themselves and those that do speak up.

I want to lead by example, we all face our David vs Goliath moments. We do it on a daily basis at times. This is a special election because I’m standing here asking for your vote for the next Lincoln City Mayor and 1st Hispanic Mayor. I know how to communicate and work well with others, now if you add to that my being bilingual in Spanish, and my vision for a prosperous and forward moving Lincoln City, one of an inclusive Lincoln City. Where families will see this for themselves and want to move here.
I have some Ideas and will share two of them. 1st if we want a bypass, we need to start looking for people that can write beyond ODOT and get a move on it otherwise it'll be another 30+ years based on the Town Hall forum from Friday March 26 with Representative David Gomberg and Senator D. Anderson.

Another thing for helping curve some of the traffic issues is why don't we use some kind of a solar/wind/generator signs with traffic updates posted and a repeating disclaimer of “be kind,let them in” so that we don't have as many people getting irritated waiting to get in line because we know the side roads and can get around town.

As a survivor of childhood homelessness, ensuring that the community is best able to help facilitate a safe place for struggling families and youth is and has been one of my main focuses in local politics. I have supported homelessness outreach programs with my votes along the years, in addition to my time having helped various home-delivery hot-food programs as a driver. I believe city-initiated creative housing programs are going to be the way to get people into homes of their own. I will continue to advocate for these programs.
Accountability and community development have been two of the cornerstones of my tenure in local politics. The city deserves a leader with governmental experience and trusted relationships. I care about and love the city, take pride in my residency, and am honored to have been elected twice for Council. It is important to have a leader who can hold multiple perspectives in mind when making policy decisions. Having spent more than a decade in local politics, I see this election as a pivotal moment for the future of Lincoln City. The Mayor helps carry the energy of the city. I am ready and able to advocate for the residents, listen to all sides, and make decisions with the city's best interest in mind. I promote and encourage economic diversity. I seek out and build strong relationships with key government officials. I appreciate and protect Lincoln City's natural and open spaces. In the last 4 years as Budget Committee Chair I have demonstrated my ability to be an effective leader.
Traffic is a great indicator of potential and we see 100% of it go by. I am a part of the lines of traffic that seemingly go on for miles in town, with the SW 33rd traffic light being the center point. The city needs to have another discussion and to review our traffic flow. I do not believe it is in the best interests to have traffic backed up like that. I drive from Florence to Astoria regularly and do not see this kind of traffic elsewhere on the 101. Pedestrian safety is of the highest importance and we have a number of crosswalks that are not at signaled intersections. I have suggested the city look at those to see if they are in the best interest. Some talk of taking those crosswalks away and converting those bump-outs into little outdoor spaces with benches and tables has taken place. Sidewalks and sidewalk maintenance have been and will continue to be a focus. It is important to have sidewalks along the entire length of our city on the 101 to encourage safe pedestrian travel.

Your Experience/Qualificatons I have lived in north Lincoln County for almost 30 years, and raised two daughters here. My husband owns a local small business. I served on Lincoln City City Council from 2014-2018; served on City budget committee before and after my term of office. I was employed as a legal secretary for 30 years, including as a Lincoln City employee. I am involved with several local non-profits as an active board member. I am committed to continuing to remain informed about relevant topics.

This is a multi-faceted issue. We need to ensure that our residents have housing they can afford to live in. The City can provide incentives to developers to encourage the types of development that the City needs. One method that works well is to put land in trust and then sell the house, but not the property, to the buyer. Especially in our city, where land is expensive, this method makes home ownership affordable for those who could not afford it otherwise. The City owns lots of residential land. I believe there is city-owned property that could be used in this manner. I have spent time attending and learning from League of Oregon Cities conferences and Oregon Main Street conferences. I have ideas to share that have worked for other communities. Our City needs a Council and City Manager who work together to get things done. We also need to address issues regarding the homeless population. The City has been working with the County to address this problem.
I believe that I am the best choice as the next mayor of Lincoln City. My experience as a north Lincoln County resident of almost 30 years, a former City employee, and community volunteer give me a unique, important perspective. I have served as budget chair, urban renewal chair, and Council president. I am currently retired from the workforce and have the time needed to study the meeting packets thoroughly. I will arrive at meetings prepared to engage in meaningful discussions. As Mayor I will listen. In a leadership role, often listening is more important than talking. I have the skills and experience necessary to be Lincoln City’s next Mayor.
During the solar eclipse a few years ago, we thought we were prepared for unusual crowds of people. Then fewer visitors than a normal summer weekend arrived. One of the things we did then was prohibit many left turns from 101. I think we should experiment with this. Mid-block crosswalks cause traffic congestion, and fatalities. One of our traffic issues is how to evacuate Lincoln City in an emergency. We need more routes through and out of town. Some places where Highway 101 narrows to two lanes cannot be changed, others can. Alternate routes east, and egress from Roads End should be explored. ODOT’s synchronized traffic lights are helping. When we again encourage people to come to Lincoln City, we will be able to test their effectiveness. Over 30 years ago a bypass was considered and not pursued. I believe that people are more receptive to that idea now and we need to work hard to make something happen.

If the question assumes that a flood of Lincoln City residents will lose their housing because they have not been able to pay their rent because of the executive orders imposed by the governor (businesses closing, jobs eliminated, hours reduced etc...) then I will have to see the numbers of those affected. As of yet I've seen no data from the state or county. As mayor and planning commission chair I oversaw and participated in expanding affordable housing opportunities by rewriting many of our housing codes including Accessory Dwelling Units, increased density and easing of restrictions on builders to make affordable housing opportunities economically feasible,
Lincoln City will soon be without a City Manager, and we have a new City Planner. We don't need an inexperienced mayor to chair the meetings and choose a new City Manager. I am the only candidate with mayoral experience. During my tenure I faced every criticism and challenge that a mayor could face and still was able see important items through to completion including, but not limited to, restoration and rebuilding of the Taft dock, instituting design standards for our city and completion of the new police station. I bring a wealth of business and entrepreneurial experience that no other candidate has and that has proven important when discussing ideas such as traffic, parking, tourism, employment land use etc... And I won't need any extra time to learn how to effectively run city business meetings as all the other candidates will.
The same solutions that I have proposed for all my time as Mayor of Lincoln City; Create multiple opportunities for people to keep their cars off of the road once they arrive to stay (or visit) such as changing zoning to allow for small commercial use near or in residential neighborhoods such as convenience stores or coffee shop to let people walk to get small purchases rather than drive to a grocery store or coffee shop. Develop a peak season public transportation system such a trolly which would encourage tourist to travel on it for pleasure and serve many of the employees of businesses in Lincoln City. Encourage east/west development of commercial areas to take the pressure off of our current North/South alignment. I would also encourage revisiting the Taft Village Core zoning which I believe only further drives business to the north end of town creating more traffic snarls and bottlenecks.
