As President of the Clairemont Town Council, it’s an honor to help provide support and guidance to the Council’s Garden Tour Committee, which works to organize the annual Clairemont Garden Tour — a fundraising event for the Council that helps fund our community improvement grants.

Thanks to our main sponsor this year, Janett Lewis, she was able to capture much of the event in the following YouTube video — featuring interviews with homeowners, Garden Tour Committee Chair Dana Sortwell, and myself.

Since I had the opportunity to move into this Clairemont neighborhood of San Diego, I quickly jumped at the chance to get involved. The best way I figured was to join the Clairemont Town Council.
