BOARD OF DIRECTORS
2023 BHNA PRESIDENT
My wife Lori and I moved to the Beresford Hillsdale area in 1994. I’ve volunteered in many capacities including attending the San Mateo Academy, heading the Hillsdale Traffic Forum Steering Committee, and serving on the advisory board for our city’s bicycle master plan. Before living here, I resided in San Mateo’s Fiesta Gardens and served as president of their HOA. Additionally, I served on the Citizens Advisory Board for the update to San Mateo’s General Plan in 1990.
Tom and his wife Mercedeh have lived in San Mateo since October 2012 and they love it here. Tom got involved with BHNA to help collect signatures for Measure P height limits. His biggest concerns for San Mateo are overbuilding and laws that allow Wall Street to monetize our suburban neighborhoods that add zero affordable housing and no infrastructure responsibilities on developers. Tom loves the trees, beauty, services, location, fresh air, Hetch Hetchy water, and all of his friends and neighbors. He hopes to see you around town!

In retirement, Don’s interests include travel, golf, photography, reading, the Hillsdale High School Foundation and Alumni Association, and, of course, the general welfare of the Beresford Hillsdale Neighborhood and the City of San Mateo.
