Additionally from the Herald:
"Ms. Bower wants to focus on the city's fiscal health and continue making improvements in North Beach. A longtime advocate of controlled growth, Ms. Bowers says she would even slow down the city's pace of growth if that were necessary to meet the Beach's infrastructure needs. She also is concerned with traffic congestion, workforce housing and looking after the needs of children and the elderly."
