Please describe your relevant analytical skills. I have been actively involved in neighborhood issues in the southeast central area of Austin for 32 years. These issues include funding for Parks and trails, zoning cases, and community policing. These experiences have required that I analyze the issues and create presentations for city commissions and City Council. I have given many presentations to city commissions and City Council.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. I am a neighborhood activist, a former city of Austin employee, and a former employee of businesses. These experiences give me a perspective of the issues facing residents, businesses and the city. I chose to live in an area that has the most diverse population in the city. I am active in neighborhood groups in the central area, which gives me perspective on the problems facing different groups.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I chose to live in the 78741 Postal ZIP Code, which is one of the most ethnically diverse and densest areas of Austin. My membership in the EROC Contact Team has given me insight into the problems of different socio-economic groups in the central city. My employment with the city of Austin allowed me to understand the problems facing different areas of the city.
Please provide your employment history. 1993 - 2014 City of Austin working in the Information Systems Department (now CTM) servicing General Fund Departments. This experience has given me insight into the problems facing the various city departments and areas of the city. 1985 - 1993 Lockheed Missiles and Space Information Systems Department 1974 - 1985 Western Geophysical Company Field Engineer
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. I have been involved in the East Riverside/Oltorf Combined (EROC) Neighborhood Area Contact Team since the beginning of the planning process in 2004. I have been a member of the Contact Team since 2006, when the EROC Plan was approved by Council. I have been Chair of the EROC Contact Team since 2013. I have also been a member of Austin Neighborhood Council and ANC Sector 9 Representative. I have been involved in projects to improve parks and trails in the southeast central area. I am retired, so I can commit a significant amount of time to this commission.
