I have been fortunate to live in the Conejo Valley since 1988 after returning from Europe where my father, David Buss, was stationed as a captain in the US Army. I attended Conejo Valley Unified School District schools from first grade through graduation from Thousand Oaks High School.
My husband is a local fire captain, and we are raising our two daughters here in the Conejo Valley. I appreciate serving Conejo Valley through multiple community service paths from the PTA, Chair of the Thousand Oaks Rotary Chili Cook Off to Executive Board Member of Senior Concerns. I have decided to continue my service through the Conejo Recreation and Parks District.
Many of you have asked why am I running?
As a local real estate agent, I have long promoted CRPD’s 50 parks, 150 miles of open space trails and 8 community facilities, and the thousands of programs offered. I grew up playing soccer at Old Meadows Park and Conejo Creek South, going to dances at the Teen Center, Summer Concerts in the park, hiking in Wildwood and celebrating milestones with family and friends at our beautiful parks. I walked my babies in the evening to Conejo Community Park to watch the sunset and push them in the swings. I love the enchantment that our parks, trails, and community centers bring to the Conejo Valley. This is why my husband Danny and I have stayed in the area where we grew up, to give our children the same abundant opportunities we had. I believe in giving back by helping to preserve the traditions of our big little Conejo Valley.
I am running to serve and protect the magic of Conejo Valley by focusing on fire prevention, emergency help, protecting our beautiful natural landscape, providing accessibility to our open space, playgrounds and programs. I hope you will support me in this election! Instead of campaign donations, I ask you to donate to Play Conejo, CRPD’s foundation which does amazing things in our community such as scholarships for foster children to participate in the recreation programs.
I will be self funding my campaign and would love your help through meet and greets with your inner circle or a lawn sign in your front yard. Please see the links below to sign up for either.
