Dear CdMRA Board Members,

As you know, I recently qualified to run as a Newport Beach City Council Candidate for District 6. I am thrilled and excited to be in this race, and I will continue to work hard to win and to restore truth, ethics and transparency to Newport Beach city government. In order to spend the appropriate amount of time and energy on the campaign and also to avoid any perception or appearance of conflict of interest, I believe it is best for me to step down as CdMRA’s president. As a 1987 founding member, this organization means a great deal to me and I see it as critical in working with the council to represent our citizens. Throughout our 32 year history, I have remained active and supportive of all CdMRA has done to promote education and dialog on issues large and small that impact our CdM residents and members. I feel privileged to be have been elected as your president for the 2018 term, and I think our efforts continue to be vitally important.

Our Vice President Debbie Stevens has agreed to be considered for the office of President, for which she is imminently qualified. In order to preserve the organization structure as outlined in our Bylaws, you will be asked to vote on the installment of new officers so that CdMRA can continue its important work without any disruption or delay. Thank you for your commitment to and support of CdMRA and all it stands for. I look forward to being able to continue to serve our community and this organization again after the November 6 election.
