Candidate Statement


I’m running for Pacifica City Council, District 4. I want to provide balance on the Council.  My goal is to make a difference and a contribution to the community where I’ve loved living for 35 years.

I care about senior services and services for people in need.  In this COVID pandemic, I support the efforts of Pacifica City Council to keep Pacifica safe.  I want to make a positive impact on people’s lives, especially the most vulnerable in our community.

I care about preserving the beauty and natural resources of our community.  I’m proud of what we’ve done to protect our environment.

I’m past President and Treasurer of Pacifica’s Environmental Family.  I’m currently on a leave of absence from the Pacifica Resource Center board and am Treasurer for Pacifica Gardens.  I’m an active volunteer with Pacific Beach Coalition.  I was a parent volunteer in the Pacifica School District.  (Fellow parents may remember me as Marj Burnfield.)

I am strongly in favor of fiscal responsibility.  I have a degree in Business Management and training in Non-Profit Management and Bookkeeping for Non-Profits.

I enjoy hiking, gardening, knitting, and I’m an avid birder.  I want to meet all of the voters in District 4.  I’d love to come to your door but in this pandemic that’s not possible.  I respect your personal boundaries.  I’d love to talk to you on the phone or in virtual meetings on the Internet.
