Representing Residents

For over 20 years I have called Foster City home.   I pledge civility, honesty and transparency with residents. 


Take a Breather on Housing

  •  I stand with the residents of Foster City to take a breather on housing development until approved construction is completed.  We must evaluate the impact of overbuilding on traffic and infrastructure.  

Traffic Congestion

  • Explore traffic solutions for 92/101 entrance and egress out of Foster City.  
  • Partner with Metropolitan Transit, CalTrans and SamTrans to combine resources for a viable solution.

Our Schools

  • Expand and support partnerships with San Mateo-Foster City School District.  
  • Our children are our community.  
  • We must open the dialog  between our schools and our city government to benefit us all.  

Fiscal Responsibility

  • Anticipate possible levee cost overruns
  • Address aging infrastructure
  • Examine and determine future pension liabilities
  • Determine financing:  will we use city reserves or depend on taxpayers dollars?

Other Issues Facing Foster City

  • Proposed rebuild of Recreation Center
  • Upgrade of the wastewater treatment facility
  • Proposed rebuild of Costco with a gas station


“I have the will and courage to represent the residents and small businesses of Foster City.  I promise to be an advocate for residents.”  With 40 years in the financial services industry and a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Finance and Business Management I bring experience to represent Foster City.   I have pledged to run my campaign according to the Code of Fair Campaign Practices, signed 8/15/18.

Phyllis Moore, former San Mateo-Foster City School District Trustee

“As Treasurer of Isle Cove HOA, Deborah has been actively involved in getting things accomplished expeditiously and with fiscal responsibility. She is a person of action and of her word. She follows through to see plans come to fruition. Deborah is diligent to do her research and present viable solutions to existing problems.”
